Amulius needed the two young men murdered. The newborn children were to die in the Tiber River. Their basket was spared and ran on solid land.
A she-wolf found the babies and fed them with her own milk. A shepherd discovered them and brought the two infants home to his wife. They raised them as shepherds and named them Romulus and Remus.
Remus was imprisoned after an argument with the king's shepherds. Romulus gathered others to help rescue his brother. Amulius was killed and Romulus and Remus discovered their true identities.
Their supporters wished to crown them as joint kings, but they reinstated their grandfather, Numitor.
Instead, Romulus and Remus decided to found a new city along the Tiber River, near where the she-wolf found them when they were babies. This city would later become the great city of Rome.
Remus jumped over the wall and then was killed by his brother Romulus. Romulus consolidated his power, therefore, the city was named after him. This exemplifies betrayal by Romulus killing his brother Remus
