Even with this legendary version, however, there were many stories written about the twin brothers that differed about the details of their birth and family.
The most believable story about "Romulus and Remus" was that Numitor and Amulius, who were the last of the Alba kings descended from the lineage of Aeneas, decided to divide the kingdom into two equivalent shares.
After usurping the throne, he murdered Numitor's sons and forced his daughter Rhea Silvia to become a Vestal Virgin so she would not have children.

His, "Numitor's," origin, like the Biblical Abraham before him, being from the land of Ur (Light), is described as having come from "Alba Longa." The Latin for "Alba" means "white, pale, fair, hoary, gray; bright, clear; favorable, auspicious, fortunat" (fortunate).
