Tuscany region used to be home to the advanced Etruscan civilization. It was annexed by Rome in 351 BC. After the epic fall of the Roman empire, Tuscany was governed by several different rulers, However, after all that power-thirsty turmoil over the area, the region emerged as a political entity with its own rulers. The fastest growing Tuscan cities gradually gained their independence and formed independent republics. By the late Middle Ages, cities such as Siena, Arezzo, Pisa, Lucca, Pistoia, and Florence became wealthy centers of farming, manufacture, trade, and banking.
Unsurprisingly, little by little, Florence took power over all the cities within the region becoming the strongest of them all.
