What is Rome without its myths and legends? It would be less exciting, surely. Just the founder of Rome, yes Romulus, was the son of Mars himself! And the mythical mother of Romulus and Remus was no other than the descendant of the Trojan hero, Aeneas. And not just another hero, but the son of Venus, the goddess of love and beauty! But then why are the twins always depicted with a She-wolf? Want to hear more?
Some say that ancient Romans were not as fond of the divinities as the Greeks were. It is true that they copied most of the Greek gods and goddesses but they made them better. Not only by changing their names, the Romans also changed their characters. Interesting, right? And Rome has more deities than the Greeks, they even have one to protect them while they are in the toilet!
