Romulus

Romulus: legendary founder of Rome.

Legend

There are no indications of a historical nucleus. The oldest settlement in Rome was a village of farmers, not of shepherds. The story about the she-wolf is a common fairy-tale (cg. Cyrus the Great being raised by a bitch); the story about the auspices was already known to Ennius.

Venerable institutions like the Senate were believed to have been created by Romulus.
