Romulus and Remus, were the twin babies of the Roman god of war, Mars, and Rhea Silvia, a princess. The king feared the power of the twins and left them on the Tiber River to die. A she-wolf stumbled upon them and took them in.
The wolf cared for the boys with the help of a woodpecker. One day, shepherds came upon the twins and took them in.
One day, Remus was captured by the king and figured out who he and his brother were. In attempt to save Remus, Romulus killed the king. They set out to create their own kingdom.
They found an area they both liked but couldn't decide what hill their kingdom would be on. They agreed that a sign from the gods would decide. Remus saw the sign of six vultures first but Romulus saw twelve. Both claim to have gotten the sign.
Look, six vultures!
Romulus began building a wall around his hill. Remus became jealous and made fun of the wall. Romulus ended up killing Remus in a fit of rage.
Romulus continued to build his kingdom and established it on April 21st, 753 BCE. Romulus made a very strong kingdom that would continue to be very powerful for over 1,000 years.
