We can see the 6th-century political system as follows. 6th century BC There were 16 Mahajanapadas in which two types of the political situation are seen -
Under the monarchical system, different types of monarchy callings are found, according to the texts, there was mention of five types of kingdoms, food, self-rule, quietness, and state.
Was different. The rulers of Magadha and Kalinga were called emperors and they were crowned for the coronation empire. The kings of the south were called bhojas
While the king of the western region was called Swarajya. Under the monarchical system, the king wore large titles. There was a council of ministers to assist the king and the king used to perform big sacrifices to increase his power.
The republican political system was different from the monarchy in which the power was shared on a level of equality among all the members. Under the republican system, the king held large titles, all the members gathered in big institutions and talked collectively. It was kept in front of everyone, a president was elected to conduct operations like today and a secret ballot was held. The system of the judicial system was good under the republican system. There is a discussion of seven hierarchical courts in the death penalty case.
In both the political systems, many parts were divided from state to village so that the political system could be run.
