Best Answer

The Roman Republic was formed 509 BC. Up till then Rome had been ruled by Etruscan kings. The Roman took their gods from the Etruscans and their Italic ancestors and neighbors. Later they incorporated many of the Greek gods. This means that some of the Roman myths go far back in history or pre-history.
