Hi, I am Romulus. They are my parents and my brother. I'm going to tell you my story.
Amulius was very wicked and he wanted to kill us.
In the river Tiber a she-wolf found us and then a shepherd looked after my brother and me.
Rhea Sylvia and Mars, the God of War, were my parents. I had a brother, called Remus. We were twin brothers.
I should be in charge. I will be a good king.
No, I will be better than you.
We had got a wicked uncle, called Amulius, king of Latium. He didn't want anybody to reclaim his throne. For that reason he killed Sylvia, our mother, and sent one of his servants to kill me and my brother.
This is Rome, the city I had built.
Luckily, the servant couldn't kill us and he sent Remus and me down the river Tiber. There, a she-wolf found us and we fed off the she-wolf's milk. Later a shepherd and his wife raised me and my brother as their own.
I died at the age of 54.
When we grow up, we left to our home to create a city by the river Tiber. When I was bulding the city, my brother and I had a big argument about who should be in charge, and Remus was killed.
I started to build the city of Rome in 753 BC. I populated the city with people of all kinds: refugees, slaves, free people... Most of the population were men, so I kidnapped women from other towns and then, a war started. But it finished quickly , because the women accepted their new roman husbands.
There is a lot of people living in there.
I died when I was 54 years old, after 38 years governing Rome and figting in some wars.
