The word Citizen is derived from the latin word 'Civis' which means the person who lives in a city. In the ancient time, there were small city-states in Greece and Rome. At that time city dweller was called the citizen. In ancient Greece, the women, slaves, low classes people and servants were not recognized as a citizen because of political rights.
