According to legend the city-state of Rome was founded by a young man named Romulus. Legend says that Romulus built a wall around his village. When his brother leapt over the wall, Romulus was upset, and killed him. This legend further says that Romulus then stated that a similar fate would befall anyone who ever tried to break through the walls of Rome.. Original founders of Rome: Romulus and Remus
In the year 620 B.C. the city-state of Rome was conquered by an outside group of people known as the Etruscans. The Etruscans, who ruled much of Northern Italy, setup kings in Rome. These kings belonged to a wealthy family known as the Tarquins. The Etruscans ruled Rome for the next 111 years. During this time, they built Rome into a very wealthy city. They taught the Romans how to use bricks, and tile roofing, how to design and layout streets and cities, and how to improve public works.
