This week I learned about the founding of Rome. In this essay I’m going to summarize the founding of Rome.
The Founding of Rome
This story probably never happened, but it’s how the Romans think that Rome was founded.
Rome was founded in 753 BC by twin brothers Romulus and Remus. They were cast into a river as babies by the king of where they lived (I don’t know where they were born). The king was afraid that the twins would take his throne when they got old enough. The twins were found by a she-wolf who was drinking from the river. She raised them as her own; she even let them drink milk from her like they were her cubs!
Later on the boys were found by a kind shepherd and his wife. They found out that they could have been kings of a city so they started their own. There was one problem though, the brothers wanted to have their city built in 2 different places! While fighting Romulus got so mad he killed his brother Remus! Romulus then founded Rome where he wanted, Palatine Hill.
There you have it, the founding of Rome. Now, remember kids, just because you had a disagreement with your sibling or your parent or your friend, it isn’t okay to kill them. Remember that! Thanks for reading!
