Romulus vs Remus

Author Comments

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.

It was pretty cool. If you spend more time on things like this you could get really good at this :)

it was ok

too short and not that interesting though...

MinusNick responds:

Yeah, it was meant ot be short because I made it in like an hour.


My God! Nick, that was the funniest fight i've ever seen. I loved the faces and the way they fought, short! :) Make a lotta flashes like that.

MinusNick responds:

You, my friend, should be a cinematic critic for a living.

Sweet and short.

I honestly didn't see that coming! I was expecting a normal sword fight, but you added the element of suprise into it making it funny.

MinusNick responds:

Well thanks! I'm glad you found this funny.


While your teacher may have been impressed by the crude flash animation, I was not. Sorry.

MinusNick responds:

My teacher really wasn't that impressed with this, I just made it in a short time just for the heck of it. I'm sorry to hear you didn't like it, but thanks anyway for the review.
