Once upon a time their were 2 twins name Romulus & Remus. The king was scared that the boys would take him over and take his throne. So he put the twins in a basket and sent them off on the Tiber river. He figured they would soon die
I shall send you off
Instead of dying, the boys were found by a she-wolf. The wolf cared for them and protected them from other wild animals. A friendly woodpecker helped to find them food. Eventually some shepherds happened across the twins. One shepherd took the boys home and raised them as his own children.
And I will give you plenty of food
We will take care of you
One day Remus was captured and taken to the king. He discovered his true identity. Romulus gathered some shepherds to rescue his brother. They ended up killing the king. When the city learned who the boys were, they offered to crown them as kings. However, they turned down the crowns because they wanted to find their own city.
GIVE MY BROTHER BACK
The twins eventually came to the place where Rome is located today. They both liked the general area, but each wanted to place the city on a different hill. Romulus wanted the city to be on top of Palatine Hill while Remus preferred Aventine Hill. They agreed to wait for a sign from the gods, called an omen
build it on top Aventine Hill
No we shall build it on top of Palatine Hill
Romulus went ahead and started building a wall around Palatine Hill. However,Remus was jealous and began to make fun of Romulus' wall. At one point Remus jumped over the wall to show how easy it was to cross. Romulus became angry and killed Remus.
This wall of yours is Foolish. even I can jump over it. It is not protective at all
With Remus dead, Romulus continued to work on his city. He officially founded the city on April 21, 753 BC, making himself king, and naming it Rome after himself. From there he began to organize the city. The city grew and prospered. For over 1,000 years Rome would be one of the most powerful cities in the world.
