This calendar allowed summer and winter months to become completely misplaced, leading to the adoption of more accurate calendars.
The Republican calendar later used by Rome followed Greek calendars in its assumptions of 29.5 days in a lunar cycle, and 12.5 synodic months in a solar year, which align every fourth year upon the addition of the intercalary months of January and February.
The ancient Roman calendar was believed to be an observational lunar calendar, based on the cycles of the moon's phases.
The Romans were then believed to have adopted a 10-month calendar with 304 days, leaving the remaining 50 or so days as an unorganized winter.
Pope Gregory XIII addressed this by essentially skipping 10 days in the date, making the day after October 4, 1582, October 15.
An adjustment was also made to the algorithm of the Julian calendar that changed which century years would be considered leap years.

From this point, many attempts were made to align the Republican calendar with the solar year including the addition of an extra month to certain years to supplant the lack of days in a particular year.
