Transcript of Romulus and Remus

Romulus and Remus He has 2 sons: Numator and Amulius Numator, the eldest, succeeds his father
as ruler; however, Amulius is jealous and
wants control. Consequently, he seizes
power and banishes his brother's daughter
to be a vestal virgin. In doing so, she cannot procreate and have an heir which could challenge the throne. Rhea silva, Numator's exiled daughter, becomes impregnated by the god of war, Mars. Video of Romulus and Remus Proca is the ruling King Rhea silva gives birth to twins, Romulus and Remus. Amulius orders the boys to be thrown into the Tiber River. The servant places the twins in a still pool of water because he cannot locate a place in the river with swift moving water. The boys are spotted by a she-wolf who has come down to the river to drink. The wolf nurses the boys. While nursing, a farmer, Faustulus, stumbles upon them. He takes the children and gives them to his wife, Larentiae, to raise and educate. The twins go their separate ways. Romulus settles on Palatine Hill. Remus settles on Aventine Hill. Romulus and Remus discover they are the grandchildren of Numator, the rightful heir to the throne. They kill their great uncle, Amulius, and embark upon establishing the great city of Rome. The twins argue over who has the right to name the city. They consult a priest to serve as a mediator. Remus claims to have seen six vultures and argues the city should be named after him. Romulus claims he saw twelve vultures; hence, the city should be named Rome after him. The two dueled, and Romulus won. Romulus built a wall around Palentine Hill. He stated anyone who dared to venture over the wall would be executed. Remus stepped over the wall and his brother killed him.
