With 2.8 million residents it is also the country's largest and most populated comune and fourth-most populous city in the European Union by population within city limits. The city is located in the central-western portion of the Italian Peninsula, on the Tiber within the Lazio region of Italy. Rome's history spans more than two and a half thousand years, since its founding in 753 BC. It was the capital city of the Roman Kingdom, the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire and the city is regarded as one of the birthplaces of western civilization. Since the 1st century AD Rome has been the seat of the Papacy and in the 8th century it became the capital of the Papal States, which lasted until 1870. In 1871 Rome became the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, and in 1946 that of the Italian Republic)
