Romulus and Remus were the twin sons of the war god Mars and Rhea Sylvia .
Being as Rhea Silvia was part of the Vestal Virgins, a group of woman set to keep Vesta's hearth burning, the king could not allow her sons to live. He ordered them to be thrown in the river Tiber.
THROW THEM IN THE RIVER!!!!!!!!!!!
The boys drifted down the river and came ashore at Ficus Ruminalis. There, they were rescued by a she-wolf and a woodpecker, two sacred animals of Mars.
The she-wolf cared for Romulus and Remus until they were adopted by a local herdsman named Faustelus and his wife, Acca Larienta.
As the boys grew they learned who they were. Together they founded a city. There was a quarrel over naming rights, and eventually Remus is killed in a fit of jealousy.
