46. Servius quamquam iam usu haud dubie1 regnum possederat, tamen quia interdum iactari [p. 160] voces a iuvene Tarquinio audiebat se iniussu populi2 regnare, conciliata prius voluntate plebis agro capto ex hostibus viritim diviso ausus est ferre ad populum, vellent iuberentne se regnare; tantoque consensu quanto haud quisquam alius ante rex est declaratus. [2] neque ea res Tarquinio spem adfectandi regni minuit; immo eo impensius, quia de agro plebis adversa3 patrum voluntate4 senserat agi, criminandi Servi apud patres crescendique in curia sibi occasionem datam ratus est, et ipse iuvenis ardentis animi et domi uxore Tullia inquietum animum stimulante. [3] tulit enim et Romana regia sceleris tragici exemplum, ut taedio regum maturior veniret libertas ultimumque regnum esset quod scelere partum foret. [4] hic L. TarquiniusPrisci Tarquini regis filius neposne fuerit parum liquet; pluribus tamen auctoribus filium ediderimfratrem habuerat Arruntem Tarquinium, mitis ingenii iuvenem. [5] his duobus, ut ante dictum est, duae Tulliae regis filiae nupserant, et ipsae longe dispares moribus. forte ita inciderat ne duo violenta ingenia matrimonio iungerentur fortuna, credo, populi Romani, quo diuturnius Servi regnum esset constituique civitatis mores possent. [p. 162] [6] angebatur ferox Tullia nihil materiae in viro neque5 ad cupiditatem neque ad audaciam esse; tota in alterum aversa6 Tarquinium eum mirari, eum virum dicere ac regio sanguine ortum: spernere sororem, quod virum nacta muliebri cessaret audacia. [7] contrahit celeriter similitudo eos, ut fere fit: malum malo aptissimum; sed initium turbandi omnia a femina ortum est. ea secretis viri alieni adsuefacta sermonibus nullis verborum contumeliis parcere de viro ad fratrem, de sorore ad virum; et se rectius viduam et illum caelibem futurum fuisse contendere, quam cum inpari iungi, ut elanguescendum aliena ignavia esset. [8] si sibi eum, quo digna esset, di dedissent virum, domi se propediem visuram regnum fuisse, quod apud patrem videat. celeriter adulescentem suae temeritatis implet.7 [9] prope continuatis funeribus cum domos vacuas novo matrimonio fecissent, iunguntur nuptiis magis non prohibente Servio quam adprobante.
