Romulus and Remus Myth - The Founding of Rome / Founding Myth of Rome

Storyboard Text

  • EXPOSITION
  • What is the meaning of this?
  • CONFLICT
  • RISING ACTION
  • Rhea Silvia was visited by Mars in the temple of the Vestal Virgins. She bore twin sons who threatened the position of her uncle, Amulius, king of Alba Longa.
  • CLIMAX
  • Amulius wanted the two boys killed. The infants were left to die on the Tiber River. Their basket was saved and ran aground.
  • FALLING ACTION
  • A she-wolf found the crying babies and fed them with her own milk. A woodpecker brought them food to eat. A shepherd discovered them and brought the two infants home to his wife. They raised them as simple shepherds, naming them Romulus and Remus.
  • RESOLUTION
  • Remus was imprisoned after an argument with the king's shepherds. Romulus gathered others to help rescue his brother. Amulius was killed and Romulus and Remus discovered their true identities.
  • Their supporters wished to crown them as joint kings, but they reinstated their grandfather, Numitor.
  • Instead, two brothers decided to found a new city along the Tiber River, near where the she-wolf had found them. This city would later become the great city of Rome.
