The MYTH of how Rome came to be is the story of ROMULUS AND REMUS. Two twins, Romulus and Remus, were sons to the Roman god of War, Mars. Mars was afraid that one day his sons would overthrow him so he had thrown them into the Tiber river. He had figured that they would soon die. The twins were rescued by a wolf and grew up to be leaders. Remus once made fun of Romulus and he killed Remus.
GLADIATOR fights were often rigged so the more popular person would win. They would go up against PLEBEIANS most of the time. The plebeians were beat a weakened before fights so that they had no chance to win.

The senate made decrees and controlled the spending of state money. Later, during the Roman Empire, the senate became less powerful and most of the power went to the emperor.
