A picture of the Tiber River, which Romulus and Remus floated upon as infants due to their uncle Amulius. He did not want to be contested for the throne of Alba Longa, so he tried to kill the twins.

Twin sons of Mars and Rhea Silvia, they were nursed by a she-wolf as infants and raised by a simple shepherd and his wife. Once they reached adulthood, they helped overthrow the false king of Alba Longa. Rather than press their own claim to the throne, however, they decided to restore the rightful king, and found a new city of their own. A disagreement arose, concerning the location of this new city; the brothers fought and Remus was killed.
