and (their) empire was equally strong over a wide area
Explanation:
'Atque' may be for 'aeque'. The whole is grossly ungrammatical, but it may mean:

And their empire was equally strong over a wide area; the Roman people had captured certain cities and gave them to the king as a token of friendship.
