His son was killed, but his daughter, who was loved by the War god, gave birth to twins Romulus and Remus, who were thrown into the Tiber River in a basket by Amulius. The brothers were later found and taken in by a female Wolf, and before long, were found and adopted by a shepherd; When they grew up, they killed their enemies, rescued their grandfather, and founded a new city. Later Romulus killed Remus and named the city Rome after himself.
