Romulus and Remus

A myth submitted to the site by Lily

Rome, Italy

The ancient kings Romulus and Remus were sent away when they were just babies, they were flushed down a river and they were very fortunate. the river brought them to safety, and a she-wolf named Lupa took care of them.

One day, when they realized their true history, that they were kings, they decided to build a city, each stood on a hill, and suddenly a bird flew above Romulus's head. Romulus said this was a sign from the gods that the city should be built by him, Remus said that it was a sign from the gods that ill omen would befall Romulus. They fought, and Romulus killed Remus. Romulus decided to name his city Rome.
