Romulus and Remus:
In Roman legend, Rome was founded on April 21, 753 BC by boy twins descended from the Trojan prince Aeneas, Romulus and Remus. Legend states that after their birth Romulus and Remus were put in a cradle and laid on the banks of the Tiber river in order to escape being murdered. The river, which was in flood, rose and gently carried the cradle and the twins downstream. The boys were rescued by the river god Tiberinus who placed the twins upon the Palatine Hill. There, they were nursed by a she-wolf underneath a fig-tree and were fed by a woodpecker until a shepherd found them and took them into his home.
Romulus (Born circa 771 B.C., Died July 5th, circa 717 B.C.) , whose name inspired the name Rome, killed Remus (Born circa 771 B.C., Died April 21nd, circa 753 B.C.) in a quarrel over which was to be king of their new city, and became the first of seven Kings of Rome. As the city was bereft of women, legend says that the Latins invited the Sabines to a festival and stole their unmarried maidens. Romulus and Remus appeared in Roman mythology as the twin sons of the priestess Rhea Silvia, fathered by the god of war Mars. According to the legend recorded as history by Plutarch and Livy, Romulus served as the first King of Rome. After founding Rome, Romulus created the Roman Legions and the Roman Senate. Romulus would become ancient Rome's greatest conqueror, adding large amounts of territory and people to the dominion of Rome. After his death, Romulus was deified as the god Quirinus, the divine persona of the Roman people. He is now regarded as an unhistorical figure, and his name a back-formation from the name Rome, which may ultimately derive from a word for " river".
The Beginning of Ancient Rome
Ancient Rome was a civilization that grew out of the city-state of Rome, founded on the Italian peninsula around 800 BC. During its twelve-century existence, the Roman civilization shifted from a monarchy to an oligarchic republic to a vast empire. It came to dominate Western Europe and the entire area surrounding the Mediterranean Sea through conquest and assimilation. The western half of the empire, including Hispania, Gaul, and Italia, eventually succumbed to a number of factors and broke into independent kingdoms in the 5th century. The eastern empire, governed from Constantinople, is referred to as the Byzantine empire after 476 AD.
The city of Rome grew from settlements around a ford on the river Tiber, a crossroads of traffic and trade. According to archaeological evidence, the village of Rome was probably founded by members of two central Italian tribes, the Latins and the Sabines, on the Palatine, Capitoline, and Quirinal Hills. The Etruscans, who had previously settled to the north in Etruria, seem to have integrated into the region by the late 9th century BC and formed the aristocratic and monarchial elite. The Etruscans apparently lost power in the area by the late 6th century BC, and at this point, the original Latin and Sabine tribes reinvented their government by creating a republic, with much greater restraints on the ability of rulers to exercise power. Ancient Rome contributed heavily to the development of law, war, art, literature, architecture, and language in the Western world, and its history continues to have a major influence on the world today.
