¿Como era la VIDA de un LEGIONARIO ROMANO?


From the 3rd century BC to
the fourth century after Christ the Roman dominated militarily speaking the world
known thanks primarily to his political and diplomatic capacity and about
everything to his army based on his legionaries or milites as they are
denominated in Rome, these were enrolled as a legionary between the ages of 16 and 20 and
his service lasted up to 25 years the most children of farmers or
poor citizens with low expectations the selection tests limited the
access to men whose strength and robustness was not tested and the advice that
I was supervising for the admission It was very severe the height should be no
less than 1.65 meters once the four month trial period
they took an oath and received a identification that distinguished them as
military well out a piece of metal hanging on a rope around the
neck a tattoo the legionary was forbidden
officially get married and if I was already at the time of recruitment your
marriage was declared null, despite it is estimated that up to 50 per
hundred of the soldiers formed families that were not recognized by the laws,
in the camps soldiers were mixed experienced with newcomers
in the lowest stratum they were the gregarius the soldiers and
because when fighting they did it as a herd was called conspiracy to
group of eight Roman soldiers who they formed a kind of unity lived together
in the same store in the barracks and all the days just getting up led to
out a kind of military parade they were staying in camps perfectly
organized that occupied between 17 and 28 hectares were actually villages with
barracks had hospital warehouses and other establishments the attention
medical was quite better than the one could receive a normal civilian in the
surroundings a sort of settlements called canabae with
brothels and other caverns entertainment, the feeding was without
doubt better than that of the common people it was a cereal-based diet
usually wheat the barley was more like punishment fish, shellfish, beans
lentils and wine diluted with water most important food for the legionary
on the contrary what is believed today was the dinner because it was the moment when
He finished his day of long marches and hard work most of the
camps used to have one or several altars in its central area
near the shops of the consul or praetor for a long time there was proof
that legionary devotees prayed in his camps his life was the
training his training was very rigorous they carried out a great march
of 30,000 Roman steps the equivalent of almost 36 kilometers the armor and the
weapons including his gladius his scutum and his two stack weigh more than 20 kilograms
and that’s not counting his backpack or sarcina where you have food and tools
they need to build the camp the shovel the saw the peak and
the basket after the march had that dig the moats raise the
embankments and palisades and mount Marching camp tents
to train recruits shouted the centurion and they all started to
train following the orders of the instructors first attacked a pole of
wood nailed to the ground when recruits had learned the rudiments
of the attack and the defense against posts after exhausting days the
instructors made them fight for couples exchanging between each other and
thus exhausting days passed without pause weeks whole months until
that finally the legionaries were authorized to train with weapons of
true finally they learned to adopt
specialized training for face each type of enemy
the Roman soldiers in addition to preparing the fight and practice the war
collaborated in the development of the colonization of the empire they participated in
the occupation of cities in their foundation well in the construction of
aqueducts or bridges, the recruits had to do instruction two
times a day veterans only one per that the veterans had more
free time they occupied in lazing around the streets in play visiting the
brothels and so on each legion has about five thousand
men divided into cohorts of ones 500 which in turn are divided into centuries
from 80 to 10 men approximately every century has a centurion who is at
I command the banner with the eagle the centurions march next to
the legionaries shouting dex orders without dex without right left right
left starting with the right foot since the left brings bad luck, the
first great advantage they had was a guaranteed salary what very few
could have in antiquity they earned a denarius a day the same as
a good civil worker with the advantage that the military worked all year
while an artisan for example could be frequently unemployed, his
annual salary was 1200 sesterces at Legionary of his salary was deduced
one part to cover certain expenses including contributions to a fund
for each soldier in addition to his salary the legionaries could obtain sources
of income like the donations I used to grant each new emperor to the
legions the spoils of war also they were another source of income sometimes
quite good as those who got those who conquer jerusalem in the year
70 after Christ the courage in the battlefield was also rewarded
could economically increase the pay in 50 percent or doubled for the rest
of the legionary’s career about half of the soldiers
survived those 20 or 25 years of service was the time to graduate
at that time they received part of their salary that the army kept them and
they received an economic reward substitute the lands that are
they delivered the first times, a centurion would have a capacity
economy similar to those of the elites of the cities and could occupy positions
Municipalities of relevance the soldier would have enough level to
live comfortably then had a few 40 to 45 years and some not too many
life ahead

  1. El soldado Romano era una maquina versátil, entrenaban, cosinaban, libraban grandes batallas y eran ingenieros constructores

  2. Simplemente fue el mejor ejército de ese entonces, eran soldados a todo terreno y aprueba de todo.

  3. Las legiones romanas estaban compuestas por elementos de todos los rincones y aldeas del imperio,asi mantenian al imperio estable

  4. Es más complejo de lo que parece los legionarios.
    Para empezar los primeros legionarios lo componían familias patricias osea nobles no campesinos como lo dijiste.

  5. Los Romanos son las bases de la civilización moderna, el orgullo de los latinos, la base de nuestro idioma el Español.Trajano el Hispano fué el que le dió mayor explendor al imperio en su época dorada.

  6. Habría estado bien que explicases más el entrenamiento, lo de correr al rededor del campamento, las armas más pesadas, las batallas sin sangre…

  7. mi ciudad León fue fundada por una legión romana la Legio VI Victrix antes se decía que fue la Legio VII Geminae pero se descubrio que fue la Legio VI Victris esta llena mi ciudad de restos romanos

  8. deje la escuela y deje el trabajo y empecé a entrenar primero 3 después 5 , hasta 6 horas de entrenamiento diario empecé a vivir solo para eso, alcance una condición física completa. cierto que vivimos en una época contemporánea con acceso a todo, haber vivido en esas épocas hubiera sido gran experiencia, dura y cruel jaja pero gran experiencia.

  9. Estos si eran soldados guerreros junto con las demas culturas, nada de que los apestosos hebreos y toda esa cultura hipocrita.

  10. Los Romanos no conquistaron Jerusalen en el año 70 de nuestra era, Israel ya desde mucho antes de Cristo estaba ocupada y dominada por roma (Conquistada). Al decir Israel me refiero a lo que en esos tiempos se conocía como las Provincias de Judea y Samaria. Eso incluye a Jerusalen. Lo que los romanos hicieron en el 70 fue sofocar una rebelión expulsando a todos los israelitas del territorio (los que sobrevivieron a la masacre) y además destruir Jerusalen.
    Una vez expulsados los Israelitas y rescatado lo de valor, se quedaron con todo.

  11. Contada por un italiano de Roma, nos dijo que a partir de los 9 años los varones dejaban de pertenecer a al madre y pasaban al cuidado del estado. Se los instruia militarmente y recién a los 16 años comenzaban a integrar las filas.

  12. Buen video
    Si puedes reedita lo del alimento
    Las judías se importaron de América tras Colón…en todo caso habas pero no judías ni frijoles

  13. Cuando roma estaba conquistando medio viejo continente tus antepasados se comían los piojos los unos a los otros

  14. Esos sieran chingones Las. Gerras se ganaban frente a frente hoy solo escondidos disparandose Uno Con otro Como a una Milla DE distansia atras de un muro de concreto Antes SI eran riatas hoy solo ratas

  15. esos privilegios sociales de los militares romanos me hacen recordar los privilegios de los militares chilenos de hoy. mejores sueldos. mejores jubilaciones. el estado les dan casa gratis. salud etc aparte que tienen licencia para robar. milico gate mientras el pueblo…….tienen que pagar hasta el aire. malas jubilaciones. tienen que pagar todo.

  16. Pues muy fácil: matar, saquear, violar, asesinar… La vida de un legionario de la genocida Roma es bastante predecible.

    Sólo vinieron a la península Ibérica a masacrar las civilizaciones locales y a cometer verdaderos genocidios y barbaries, y por supuesto a robar y saquear todo lo posible, y todo esto durante más de 5 siglos…

  17. Para mi los romanos fueron un ejercito muy bien entrenado y entreguerras se dedicaban a entrenarse mas, y fue el ejercito que puso una de las primeras jerarquizaciones en las filas que se usan hoy en dia en todos los ejercitos, fue ejemplo de un ejercito perfecto que tuvo el mundo, y en la sociedad romana fue una de las primeras en la jerarquización de clases sociales, en pocas palabras, una sociedad de hoy en dia, y era obligatorio prestar el servicio militar hasta los 25, si lo requisitabas, te dama muchos beneficios al conseguir un puesto en el gobierno

  18. Después del general Mario, fue que los comunes se pudieron a listar en el ejército, pues en la alta República tenías que tener tierras para pertenece, pero tras la baja de soldados en las primeras guerras bárbaras todo cambió y fueron conocidos como las mulas de Mario.
