- Romulus And Remus - 553 words
Romulus And Remus Numitor, King of Alba, had been ousted by his brutal brother, Amulius. Amulius made sure Numitor would have no heirs by forcing Numitor's only child, his daughter, Rhea Silvia, to spend her days as a vestal virgin, serving in the temple of Venus, goddess of the hearth. Nevertheless, Rhea subsequently gave birth to twin boys, Romulus and Remus. Their father was not a man, but Mars, god of war. When Amulius found out what had happened, he slew Rhea Silvia and had the two boys thrown into the Tiber River. The river bore the twins safely ashore, where they were found by a she-wolf who suckled them with her milk. The wolf looked after them until they were found by Faustulus, one ...

Romulus was ounder and first king of Rome. He and his twin brother, Remus, were the sons of Mars, god of war, and of Rhea Silvia, also called Ilia, one of the vestal virgins.

- Charles W Chestnutts The Conjure Woman - 715 words
Charles W. ChestnuttS The Conjure Woman The Conjure Woman The first half of Charles W. Chestnutt's The Conjure Woman begins with the interaction between a Northern white male and the conventional portrayal of a slave. In the novel an old ex-plantation slave, Julius, recounts stories that he says he heard as a child. The audience of the stories is the white Northern male, who is the narrator of the story, and his sickly wife, Annie. The stories are told for many purposes but my favorite reason behind the telling of the tales is Julius' attempt and in most cases achievement to acquire several things by this sly action. From the time that Julian the slave meets John, the Northerner and narrator ...

... e defendant [to court] by force. (Nardo 28-29) The Tribunes of the Plebs protected the Plebs from unjustness, and the Plebs protected them by threatening to strike. As time went on, Patrician control over Plebians gradually decreased, until in 366 BC, the Plebs were allowed to become consul. Soon it became a custom to elect one Pleb and one Patrician (Nardo 28). In 287 BC, the Popular Assembly gained the right to make laws. Rome was ever expanding. In 496 BC, Rome conquered Latium. In 449 BC, the Sabines fell, and in 396 BC, the Etruscans. Instead of trying to oppress conquered tribes and peoples, Rome absorbed them, integrating them into their culture. This made them much easier to cont ...

- Rome, History Of The Accounts Of The Regal Period Have Come Down Overlaid With Such A Mass Of Myth And Legend That Few Can Be - 2,982 words
Rome, History of. The accounts of the regal period have come down overlaid with such a mass of myth and legend that few can be verified; Roman historians of later times, lacking authentic records, relied on fabrications of a patriotic nature. Following this period, when a republic was established, Rome became a world power and emerged as an empire with extensive boundaries. The Legendary Period of the Kings (753-510 BC) Rome was said to have been founded by Latin colonists from Alba Longa, a nearby city in ancient Latium. The legendary date of the founding was 753 BC; it was ascribed to Romulus and Remus, the twin sons of Rhea Silvia, a vestal virgin and the daughter of Numitor, king of Alba ...

- The Roman People Were A Overly Proud And Highly Religious People, Whose Sense Of Identity As Romans Came Primarily From Their - 905 words
The Roman people were a overly proud and highly religious people, whose sense of identity as romans came primarily from their accomplishments in war and their respect of their ancestors. By examining Livys The Early History of Rome, we can identify these traits through roman patterns of behavior and the foundation myths that their nation is built upon. The romans repeatedly display not only an overdeveloped personal sense of pride, but an exceptional pride in their nation - taking precedence over even family loyalty. The first example of this Roman pride is seen in the very first foundation myth of Rome, the tale of Romulus and Remus. The second of the two versions of this story tells how af ...

- Vergils Aenied - 609 words
Vergil's Aenied Within the Aeneid, there are many themes contained in the text. One of them is the death of the good and the young in battle. This recurring theme seems to be prevalent in Vergil's epic because it most definitely occurs in all battles. When there is battle, there are consequences. Most often these consequence are the death of someone who is seen as not yet ready to die because they are good or young. In Book IX of the Aeneid, lines 402-545, a battle scene and the events leading to it are depicted. Ascanius is leading a troop of Trojan soldiers who want to pass through a place that was unrightfully conquered by Rhamnes. One Trojan decides to single handedly make a path through ...
