A princess had twins with the god Mars, but the Uncle got jealous and thought the twins could overthrow him. So ordered that someone sneak in and kidnap them and drown them in the river, however they survived and were rescued by a she wolf and raised until a man found them and took them to live with humans(the man and woman). Romulus and Remus went to their grandfather and were discovered to be the princesses twins. So they took back the crown and made a city in honor of the victory. They got in a fight over the name of it and it didn’t end until Remus died. It was named Rome….. after Romulus.
Go get the Crown!
