In every key there is a natural progression of chords starting on each note of the scale within the key. Roman numerals are used to describe the positions within the key.  ie:  I = root or 1st position - also referred to as the tonic of the key, ii = second position, iii = third position...

Musicians often refer to these "positions" when describing a chord progression to their fellow musicians.  IE:  I - V - IV - I in the key of C would refer to C - G - F - C
or  in the key of G this would refer to G - D - C - G
or   I - VI - ii - V in the key of C refers to  C - Ami - Dmi - G (the A and D are minor chords because that is what occurs naturally within the key signature of C)
