The Legend of How Rome Came To Be

Storyboard Text

  • It's not fair that Mars had kids before me!!
  • Lets kill his kids so he has to suffer!
  • Long ago, there was a god named Mars. Mars fell in love with a mortal named Rhea. Rhea and Mars then had two sons name Romulus and Remus.
  • Some of the other gods grew jealous of Rhea and Mars. They plotted to kill their two newborn sons. Rhea heard of this and realized she needed to protect her sons. She then sent her two children down a river in a basket.
  • I don't care if you win I will become king!
  • The two boys were then found by a she-wolf. The she-wolf decided to raise them as her own. Romulus and Remus started to grow and the she-wolf knew she couldn't raise then anymore.
  • Actually.... That is just a legend. Who really made Rome was some Latin villages who joined together to built a city.
  • The she-wolf left the boys in a spot that a shepherd would find them. The shepherd did find the two boys. The shepherd and his wife then raised them as their own.
  • The boys then grew up. They decided to build a city and rule as king. The boys had a contest to see who would be king. Remus seemed to be winning, so Romulus killed his brother with a rock.
  • Historians believe something different though. They believe that several Latin settlements joined together and built a city. They then called that city Rome.
