Notes: Stemma according to Dionysios of Halicarnassos. Livius skips the two ignoti thus compressing the generations, which seems impossible from a chronological perspective.
Much (most?) is no doubt mythical. Possibly only Cn.Tarquinius (RE5) is historical, but he may not be a king. The kings' reigning dates below are the traditional.
