Ancient Rome History

Ancient Rome History
753 BC is commonly believed to be the founding of Rome by Romulus. It is believed that Romulus and Remus, the descendents of Aenied were raised by a she-wolf. It is believed today that the name of the she-wolf was Sylvia. There is evidence that the forest which the she-wolf came from was called Sylva or Sylvannia. This is often depicted in art as two babies being cared for by a wolf(see image above). As the two brothers reached manhood, Romulus killed Remus for power. Later, Romulus founded Rome. During the early years of Rome, the city was ruled by the Etruscans, who originated from Etruria, a city in the North.
