Romulus and Remus are twin brothers that are well known as being the founders of Ancient Rome.

Romulus and Remus' mother, Rhea Silvia, was the daughter of King Numitor. King Numitor was forced to step down from the throne, by his brother Amulius. When Romulus and Remus were born, after Rhea was forced to have children with Mars Amulius forced her to abandon them. They were taken to the River Tiber and left at its banks. Tibernius, god of the River, pitied the infants, and decided to wash them to safety. Romulus and Remus were then found by the she-wolf, Lupa, who nurtured them and raised them as her own young.

The Founding of RomeEdit

Romulus and Remus grew to be healthy adults, under the care of Lupa. They overthrew Amulius and gave the throne back to their grandfather, Numitor. They then decided to make their own city. They argued for days on where to begin building, and the dispute ended with Remus' death. Romulus built the city, and named it Rome, after himself.
