In a small country called Alba Longa there was a king named Numitor, one day his evil brother, Amulius, wanted to become king and staged a coup and got Numitor sent to exile. He then focused on Numitors daughter named Rhea Silvia, he was afraid if she had children that they would be a big threat and seek revenge. He forced her to become a priestess so she couldn't get married.
For some time his plan worked but then she fell in love with Mars, the god of war. Several months later she gave birth to twin boys. Amulius was very mad so he put Rhea in a prison and but the babies in a basket and threw them into the Tiber river.After he did that he was happy again but little did he know the twins didn't die.
When the babies washed up on shore a she-wolf nursed them back to health with her milk. She took care of them and then gave them to a shepherds and named them Romulus and Remus. They grew up healthy and strong but one day Remus got into a fight with another shepherd and was taken to their boss. His boss was Amulius, and he realized that it was his nephews.
When they found out Amulius told them about everything and they wanted revenge, they eneded up killing Amulius and restoring Numitor as the rightful king. Soon they got bored and went to build their own city. Around the city they built walls.
When building the walls Remus and Romulus argued about the height of them. Remus said they were to low while Romulus said they were fine. To prove Romulus wrong Remus climbed over the wall. Romulus was very angry and then killed his brother on the spot. He then became ruler and named the city Rome. In Rome the citizens were the undesirable people that no one else wanted.
Even though they were outlaws and fugitives he didn't care he still invited them to stay. There were not many women though, so he invited women from the Sabines to steal them. When they did this the Sabines men were very angry and wanted to declare war. The women stopped them though and the war stopped. Then all of them ruled together and when Titus Tatius died he ruled alone, then believed to die because of a violent storm.
