Romulus and Remus were born from a princess named Rhea Silvia. There father was the god of War. He thought that once the boys the grew they would overthrow him, so he left them in the Tiber River.
The boys were found and raised by wolves. A shepherd found them and raised them as his own.
One day, Remus was captured and taken to the king. Romulus gathered the shepherds and went to rescue him. They ended up killing the king. When the town learned their identity, the town offered them the crown. They declined it and went off to find land to build a town on.
The twins founded modern day Rome. They both wanted their city on separate hills. They agreed to wait for a sign from the god, Augury. They each claimed they saw a sign
Romulus started building a wall around his hill. However, Remus started to make a joke of it. Romullos got angry and killed Remus.
Romulus continued to work on his city, officially founded April, 21, 753 BC, making himself king. He named it Rome after himself. He made his army of 3,300 men. Rome became one of the most powerful empires in the world.
