Question Answer
GracchusTiberius Gracchus, elected in 133 BC, most significantly passed Agrarian law that stated that landowners couldn't own more than a certain amount of public land or they would be fined. This prevented latifundia- extensive ownership of land. Senators opposed this and claimed he was trying to redistribute wealth and therefore shake foundations of the republic. Tiberius side stepped the senate and disrespected them by going straight to the counsel of the plebs with his laws without consulting the senate first. He got the Agrarian law passed by using his veto to shut down the city and start a mini uprising till he was granted his proposition
