a cartoon retelling of the story of Romulus and Remus and the founding of Rome
Always remember that there are many versions of this story! You will probably see other versions where Romulus and Remus have to compete for who should found the new city. In most of these versions, they stand on two different hills and 6 vultures or eagles fly over Remus, but 12 vultures or eagles fly over Romulsu, so he is proclaimed the ruler. Later on, Romulus kills his brother Remus for jumping over the city wall right after he says that noone can cross the wall (even though it's under construction and still only two feet high) without Romulus' permission. Remus is jealous of Romulus being in charge and jumps over the wall, laughing and making fun of it, so Romulus kills him. Lovely, huh? Go back to question number 3, and see if this changes your answer at all. Maybe it doesn't. Why do you think people would be proud that their leader murdered his brother?
