Mars the god of war had twin boys with Princess Rhea Silvia.
Mars feared the boys would over throw him one day, so he ordered his men to drown them in the river. It was impossible to get to the river because of the flood so they left the boys in the flood water.
AS the water receded the boys were left on the ground beside the river. A she wolf heard the boys crying and started licking them.
Faustalus found the boys and named them Romulus and Remus, when they were older he informed the boys about the events surrounding their birth.
The boys set off to go build a settlement where they were supposed to be drowned.
The boys fought over who should govern the new town and Remus was killed. The new town was then called by its founders name.
