Romulus and Remus, (771 BC¹-717 BC Romulus, 771 BC-753 BC Remus), the traditional founders of Rome, appeared in Roman mythology as the twin sons of the priestess Rhea Silvia, fathered by the god of war Mars.
Romulus, however, was thought the wiser and more politic of the two, and in his discussions with the neighbors about pasture and hunting, gave them opportunities of noting that his disposition was one which led him to command rather than to obey.
Romulus called these noble men Patricans not only because they were the fathers of legitimate sons, but also because he intended the great and the wealthy to treat the weak and the poor as fathers treat their sons.
Romulus and Remus, the twin sons of Silvia, were placed in a trough and cast into the Tiber by their granduncle.
This tree was sacred to a goddess Rumina (ruma, breast, whence the suckling incident), and the resemblance between Romulus and ruminalis led to the fig tree and the founder of the city being subsequently connected by the Roman antiquarians.
Romulus, like his double Tullus Hostilius, is regarded as the founder of the military and political (see ROME), as Numa and his counterpart Ancus Marcius of the religious institutions of Rome.
