Pericles was Athens ruler. He wanted to glorify Athens, which was one of his goals. He ruled until the Peloponnesian Wars occurred and a disease spread throughout Athens. …Many died including Athens' leader Pericles!. Another View: Athens was a radical democracy - the citizens met in a fortnightly Assembly to consider laws and other propositions put before them by the Council. The Council implemented them. In bringing propositions forward various leading citizens would address the Assembly. Pericles was a main one, and held considerable influence in swaying the Assembly - he had more wins than losses in this - but he definitely did not 'rule'. He thought of himself as First Citizen. So the answer to the question is: The adult male citizens in Assembly.
During the Classical period the rulers were the people (adult male citizens). They assembled a couple of times a month to vote directly on all laws and major decisions. This i…s known as a direct democracy. To prepare business for the Assembly, and to carry out the directions of the Assembly, a Council of 500 was elected, and 50 of these were, in monthly rotation, on duty at any one time to execute necessary action. These large numbers were used to cover the mixed capabilities of the citizens, assuming that any fifty had to have some men of talent in its ranks. Office bearers were chosen by lot, so anyone could be one of the 10 Archons, who shared responsibility to organise specific functions (religious, administrative, financial, judicial etc). This caused a problem as the quality of them could not be guaranteed, so there was a complex array of helpers to ensure that things went smoothly. Serious jobs were givent by the peoplular assembly to one or more of the ten Strategoi (generals) who were appointed on merit, and so could be trusted to do it right.

Pericles reformed Athens
The city of Athens was experiencing a period of rest when they appointed Solon to create a new constitution for them. Solon created what is known as the Solonian constitut…ion, which brought reform to Athens.
Solon was given power to reform the social problems which threatened a revolution. He eliminated debt-slavery and other social problems, arranging for the redemption of fa…rmers sold overseas for debts. It was a compromise - a reduction in the absolute power of the upper class, with rights of freedom for the lower class. It was not the birth of democracy as is often claimed - that came 80 years later later under Cleisthenes.
The Tudors were the ruling family during the English Reformation. Henry VIII broke with the church to divorce Catherine of Aragon and marry Anne Boleyn. His son, Edward VI, to…ok the state further into the Protestant camp, but his half sister Queen Mary I (Bloody Mary) attempted to reverse the Reformation. Then after her death, her half sister, Queen Elizabeth I, reversed Mary's reversal and restored Protestantism as the state religion in the form of the Church of England, also called the Anglican Church, and, in America, the Episcopal Church.
There's direct democracy, which is a political system in which citizens participate directly in government decision making; then there's representative democracy, in which… the citizens elect others to represent them In government
In 494 BCE he was appointed to avert an impending civil war between the large landowners and the small farmers. He didn't reform law and society - made some very modest ch…anges, trying to please both sides, abolishing debt slavery and introducing an assembly of the propertied classes. It had limited success, and 30 years later the majority appointed a tyrant to limit the power of the rich and govern for the majority. The tyrants came into disfavour, and 80 years after Solon, Cleisthenes established a limited democracy, following Sparta's successful example.
