Hello, my fellow soldiers. My name is Aeneas, and I have been ordered by the gods to lead you to the promised land of the West. There, in Italy, we will join forces with distant people known as Latins.
Oh no! because I have gone against my oath to never have children, I must leave my sons of Romulus and Remus on the Tiber River banks to die!
I must feed and care for these helpless babies!
I, a shepherd, shall take these poor babies in and care for them as if they are my own.
Because the civilization of Troy was coming to an end, The Trojans hired a prince named Aeneas to guide them to the West. When they arrived, they joined troops with the Latins.
Let's build a city on the Tiber River. I will be king.
No, I will! Actually, let's have the gods decide.
Against her oath to never have children, a Latin princess gave birth in about 800 B.C. to twin boys. Because she went against her promise, she had to have a servant take them to the river to drown them.
Dear Gods? Who shall be king?
Not Romulus! I shall kill you!
Instead of killing them, the servant only left the boys near the river. After being discovered first by a female wolf, and then a shepherd, was taken in by the shepherd and his wife to be cared and raised.
ATTENTION! Sadly, the former 38- year ruler and namer of Rome, Romulus, has died in a vicious storm last night. But, he has been taken to the havens among the other gods, where he will watch over Rome as Quirinus.
Poor, Poor, Romulus.
What a shame.
Since the now young men were only becoming shepherds like their adoptive father, they were unhappy and wanted to do more. So, they decided on building a new city, but both wanted to be king, so they knew that they had to let the gods decide.
At the hilltps, Romulus and Remus shouted for a sign from the gods as to who will be king. When twelve vutures circled upon Romulus, he must have been chosen. Remus wanted revenge for this, and killed him.
Look! Vultures! They must have chosen me!
After a long 38 years of rule, Romulus had died in a terrible storm, and was old to have been sent to heaven with the other gods. There, it hd said he watched over Rome as the god Quirinus.
