★ According to a legend, the city of Rome was founded by twins, Romulus and Remus.

★ Their father was Mars, the god of war,& their mother was a Latin princess.

★ The Latin King took the infants and put them in a basket.

★ He abandoned them on the banks of the Tiber River(a river in central Italy, flowing through Rome into the Mediterranean).

★ The King was afraid the twins might try to take his throne, so he left them to die.

★ A female wolf found the twins and fed them her own milk.

★ Finally some shepherds rescued the twins and raised them as their own children.

★ After growing up the boys decided to build a city in the place where they had been born.

★ Each brother decided to rule one part of the city.They each chose a hill from which to rule the new city.

★ 1 day Romulus and Remus got into a terrible fight. Remus was angry because his brother got a larger part of the city to rule.

★ Romulus killed Remus in this quarrel.This left Romulus's hilltop called Palatine the center of the new city.

★ The city was named Rome after Romulus.
