In Roman mythology, Romulus and his twin
brother Remus were the founders of the city of Rome. They were the children of
Rhea Silvia and Mars (or in some variations the demi-god hero Hercules) and
their story is recorded by many authors including Virgil who claims their birth
and adventures were fated in order for Rome to be founded.
In Roman mythology, Romulus and Remus
are twin brothers, whose story tells the events that led to the founding of the
city of Rome and the Roman Kingdom by Romulus. The killing of Remus by his
brother, and other tales from their story, have inspired artists throughout the
ages. Since ancient times, the image of the twins being suckled by a she-wolf
has been a symbol of the city of Rome and the Roman people. Although the tale
takes place before the founding of Rome around 750 BC, the earliest known
written account of the myth is from the late 3rd century BC. Possible historical
basis for the story, as well as whether the twins' myth was an original part of
Roman myth or a later development, is a subject of ongoing debate.
