After lots of traveling, himself and his group arrived in Italy, in an area named Latinum. The ruler, Latinus, had seen them coming in his dreams, and was told that if his daughter Lavinia married Aeneas, there would be many powerful people. The wedding was set, and Aeneas's son Ascanius founded Alba Longa. One of Ascanius's descendents was Procas, had two sons named Numitor and Amulius. Numitor was the eldest, so he was the heir, but Amulius sent his brother into exile, so that he would have the throne. Just to make sure the throne would be his, he made it so that Rhea Silvia, Numitor's only child, couldn't have any kids, or get married. However, Mars secretly went to Rhea, and she soon gave birth to twins. Amulius was so angry, so he drowned her in the Tiber River, and put the babies in a basket and put it on the Tiber River. The basket kept floating until they got to shore, near Palatine Hill. When the babies started to cry, a she-wolf came. The wolf took care of the twins in a cave. Later, a shepherd named Faustulus found the twins and took them home to his wife, so they could raise them as their own. They named them Romulus and Remus. The twins grew up to be strong men. One day, some shepherds kidnapped Remus, and took him to their master, who just so happened to be Numitor. Romulus followed the shepherds and pleaded Numitor to give Remus back. Numitor soon realized that these 2 boys were his grandsons. With some help from the twins, Numitor killed Amulius, and saved Alba Longa. The twins decided to build a town, choosing the place that they were washed to. But who would be the ruler? To find out, Romulus went to the top of Palatine Hill, and Remus to Aventine Hill. They waited for the gods to pick the new ruler. Soon enough, six vultures went to Remus, and twelve to Romulus. Romulus declared to be the ruler, while Remus was jealous. Romulus decided to build the new town on Palatine Hill. Remus couldn't stand it, so he jumped over the half-built walls. Angry, Romulus challenged him to a fight, and killed Remus. Romulus was then king, and the town was named Rome, after him. Some jobs are:
