Tarquinii was one of the most ancient and important Etruscan cities.
Lucius Tarquinius Priscus and Lucius Tarquinius Superbus, became kings of ancient Rome. Numerous Roman religious rites and ceremonies derived from Tarchuna.
In 509 BC, after the overthrow of the Roman monarchy, the family of Tarquinius Superbus went into exile in Caere. He sought to regain the throne by force of arms. He convinced the cities of Tarchuna and Veii to support him and led their armies against Rome in the Battle of Silva Arsia. The Roman army was victorious however.
At the end of the 5th century and during the first half of the 4th century BC a brief revival took place, under the ascendancy of the Spurinna family, prominent up to the 1st century AD.
In this period colossal walls were built around the city in response to threats from the Celts and Rome. Tarchuna, not affected by Celtic invasions, finally colonised all its previously held territories in about 385 BC. This new flourishing state allowed a rapid recovery of all activities.
However, during the 4th century BC when Tarchuna’s expansion was at its peak, a bitter struggle with Rome took place. In 358 BC, the citizens of Tarchuna captured and put to death 307 Roman soldiers; the resulting war ended in 351 BC with roman victory.
When Tarchuna came under Roman domination is uncertain; in 181 BC its port, Graviscae (modern Porto Clementino) became a Roman colonia that exported wine and had coral fisheries. Little is known about Tarquinii in Roman times.
The ancient city had shrunk to a small fortified settlement during the early Middle Ages while the more strategically placed Corneto (possibly the “Corito” mentioned in Roman sources) grew progressively to become the major city. The last historic references to Tarquinii are from around 1250, and the last remains were destroyed in 1305.
The name of Corneto was changed to Tarquinia in 1922.
