Tiberius Gracchus

Tribune: Roman official whose task it was to protect the people against oppression.
Tiberius Gracchus was elected tribune in 133 BC. He attempted to enact a law which would have limited the amount of land that any individual could own. The aristocrats, who stood to lose an enormous amount of money, were bitterly opposed to this proposal.
