A long time ago, there was a king named Numitor who ruled an ancient city in Italy called Alba Longa. Numitor had a younger brother named Amulius who one day uprose against Numitor and took over Alba Longa.
Instead, King Amulius imprisoned Rhea Silvia and ordered a servant to put the twins in the River Tiber.
Instead, he placed their basket into the river and let the current carry the basket, in hope that someone would see the twins and rescue them
Eventually, a compassionate she-wolf came across the basket in the river and pulled the babies out to safety
