This is an animation I made for my history class about the battle between Romulus and Remus. This helped my report get an A; I hope you like it, too! If you are interested in learning more about this legend, here is a brief summary. (Oh Noes! Learning!)
According to Roman legend, Numitor, king of the ancient Italian city of Alba Longa, was the grandfather of Romulus and Remus. His brother, Amulius, forced Numitor out of his throne and made Numitor's daughter, Rhea Silvia, a Vestal Virgin. Although she was made a Vestal Virgin, she had two sons to the god Mars. Amulius, fearing for his power, had the three thrown into the River Tiber. A she-wolf and a woodpecker found and nursed them. Faustulus, a shepherd, found and raised the boys with his wife. When they grew up and discovered their lineage, they killed Amulius and reinstated Numitor as king of Alba Longa. They then decided to build towns of their own. Remus favored the Aventine Hill but Romulus wanted to use the Palatine Hill. Remus made fun of Romulus' walls and jumped over them, so they fought to the death. The victor would begin one of the greatest civilizations in history.
