Was there democracy in the ancient world?

Yes, it existed. For the first time, democracy emerged in ancient Athens. This event falls on the period of Solon’s reign. Over the years of his reign, he carried out a number of progressive reforms that significantly changed the laws of Athens. So all free citizens were able to receive some benefits, as well as the right to vote at the national assembly. This was the reason for the emergence of democracy in Athens. Democracy flourished during the reign of Pericles in the middle of the 5th century BC.
