Long ago, when Amulius overthrew Numitor, he took Rhea Silvia to the temple where she met Mars, the god of war. They had two twin boys, Romulus and Remus.
When Amulius found out about the boys, he told two men to get the boys and throw them into the Tiber River hoping they would drown.
They did not drown, but a she-wolf found them and raised them a her own.
Romulus used slaves, prisioners, and women from other tribes to populate his new city. It is said that Romulus became the first king of the new city of Rome. When Romulus died, he joined his father Mars in the sky and became the god Quirinus.
Then one day, a shepherd found Romulus and Remus. He then took them to his home and he and his wife raised them as their own children.
Until one day, the boys found out their history and decided to kill their great uncle Amulius, put their grandfather on the throne, and build a city of their own.
But they could not agree on a place to build their city, so they each built their own with walls. But one day, Remus made fun of Romulus’s wall by saying how easily it could be breached, so then Romulus killed Remus and said, “I will kill anyone who makes fun or breaches the walls of Rome!”
