  • Romulus and Remus' Birth
  • Romulus and Remus are Saved
  • The Defeat of King Amulius
  • Romulus and Remus were born the children of Rhea Silvia and Mars. Rhea Silvia was a Vestal Virgin and King Amulius had to punish her, but couldn't anger the gods. 
  • Remus Dies
  • King Amulius chose to imprison Rhea Silvia and send Romulus and Remus down a river to die. The god Tibernus helped the babies to survive and placed them in the care of Lupa, a she-wolf. 
  • The State of Roma
  • Romulus and Remus were raised shepherds by Faustulus and Acca Larentia. During a shepherd fight, Remus was taken before King Amulius. Romulus saved his brother and killed the king. 
  • Romulus Becomes a God
  • The brother turned down the offer of becoming kings in King Amulius' kingdom and sought to start a new one together. They fought over where it should be and when Remus made fun of Romulus' kingdom, he was killed by one of Romulus' followers.
  • Romulus built his city and named it Roma after himself. He created a strong state with a central government and formed alliances with the Sabine state. Roma became extremely powerful and expanded in size. 
  • After a long and successful reign, Romulus disappeared in a whirlwind and most say that he ascended into heaven to become a god in 717 B.C.E. at age 53.
