The Story of Romulus and Remus

Storyboard Text

  • Long ago in the kingdom of Latium, the benevolent king Numitor was overthrown by his evil brother, Amulius.
  • Amulius banished Numitor's daughter, the princess Sylvia, to the Temple of Mars so she could never bear sons.
  • No! Please don't send me away!
  • However, she and Mars got married and had twin boys named Romulus and Remus.
  • When Amulius heard of the twins' birth, he sent two of his servants to kidnap the infants and drown them in the Tiber River.
  • One day when Romulus and Remus were wandering far from their cave, a Shepard saw them. That night, the Shepard crept into the cave and took the boys. He brought them home and he and his wife raised them through the rest of their childhood.
  • The twins did not drown as expected. They were rescued by a she-wolf who took them in and raised them as her own.
  • Word of the twins spread to their grandfather, Numitor. He sent his guards to find the twins and bring them back.
  • You are my grandsons and the sons of the Princess Slyvia. You must overthrow Amulius and take back the kingdom.
  • Together, Romulus and Remus slayed Amulius and reclaimed the kingdom. To commemorate their victory, they decided to build a city on the banks of the Tiber River. However, they could not agree on what to call it. Remus said it should be called Rem, while Romulus said it should be called Rome.
  • Returning to the savage ways of their upbringing, they fought until Remus lay dead. Thus, the city was named Rome, and Romulus later became king of the city he named.
