Who are Romulas and Remus?


Wiki User

Romulus and Remus are two brothers who appear and reappear in various legends and myths surrounding Rome's founding. They are often said to be divine (or partly divine) in origins, to have been orphaned in the Tiber Valley among the seven hills upon which Rome would eventually be located, and to have been saved from starvation as infants by a she-wolf. It is also said that Romulus eventually killed Remus and went on to found a city that he named after himself.
