Storyboard Text

  • Romulus and Remus's Uncle was given a prophesy by a passing seer. "Your sister's children will overthrow you and will found a great empire." To stop this from happening the king sent his sister Rhea Siliva to the temple of Mars to be a priestess. Mars saw her in his temple and fell in love. They bore two twin boys.
  • There uncle heard about the boys and told some servants to drown the twins in the river Tiber. But the servants couldn't bring themselves to drown the twins so instead they placed them in a reed basket and floated them down the river where the she-wolf Lupa found the and looked after them as though they were there own. 
  • When they grew up a Shepard who never had been able to have children took them in and took care of them. When they grew up they decided to start a town on the seven hills east of the River Tiber.
  • As the bothers town expanded they  over-throw there Uncle's kingdom. They both wanted to be the ruler of the new town so they looked up to the sky and Remus saw six Vultures and Romulus saw twelve so the people choose Romulus.
  • Remus told his brother that there town would never get finished which made Romulus so angry he killed his brother and named the town Rome after himself. Rome would become one of the worlds greatest Empires.
  • Rome would expand throughout a long period of time across the then known world until it got so big and corrupt it would fall to barbarian tribes at the beginning of the Dark Ages.
