Storyboard Text

  • According to legend, Rhea Silva, the daughter of King Numitor, was married to Mars, the Roman god of war. Rhea had 2 sons name Romulus and Remus. She loved them, but soon discovered that there were plots by other deities to harm their father and her sons.
  • To protect the boys, she set them adrift in a basket on the Tiber, hoping someone would find and care for them. 
  • After a time, the boys were rescued from the river by a she-wolf who fed them with her own milk.
  • Until a shepherd named Faustulus and his wife found them and raised them. Eventually they became shepherds like Faustulus.
  • One day, the boys discovered who they really were. They decided to build a city on the banks of the Timber where they had been rescued by the she-wolf. Here they would rule as kings.
  • They both wanted to be sole king of the city. They argued and, in rage, Romulus picked up a rock and killed his brother. From then on, Romulus ruled as king, naming the city Rome after himself.
