Ancient Rome I - The Founding of Rome
May 19, 2009
This is the first of many chapters in History with a Twist of Lime's look on "The Historical History of Ancient Rome." This chapter deals with the legendary founding of the city of Rome, from the journey of Aeneas from Troy, to the consummation of the virgin Rhea Silvia by the god Mars, the birth and uprising of Romulus and Remus, their epic fight over the one to rule the new city, the raping of the Sabine women, and the crowning of Romulus as the first King of Rome. The chapter concludes with a discussion over how untrue all the aforementioned crap really is, and the fallibilities of our knowledge over the Roman origins and early kingdom.
As this is one of many chapters being produced over this project, I would invite you to watch the other chapters dealing with the history of Ancient Rome. They can be viewed seamlessly under this playlist on YouTube:
