Activity Overview


In an era when entertainment was usually through various forms of performance and theater, stories had amazing power. Caesar Augustus made great strides during the Golden Age of Rome to beautify and enrich the city of Rome, as well as to cement Roman power and authority. Stories such as that of Romulus and Remus helped to solidify Rome’s connections with powerful divinities and mythical origins.

In this activity, students compare events in the story to historical events or to effects on public opinion. Also check out Propaganda for additional background.

Other possible comparisons include:

  • As babies, they were helped by the wolf and woodpecker. Two animals sacred to Mars, protected the founder(s) of Rome; therefore Mars protects Rome.
  • Romulus and Remus are direct descendants of Aeneas who broke the heart of Dido, Queen of Carthage. Rome had a long war with Carthage.
  • Romulus killed Remus after he jumped over his brother’s wall. Rome experienced political strife and many betrayals, such as the assassination of Julius Caesar.
