Sruthi asked:

Does this book have anything about Romulous and Remus? And how they were apparently brought up by wolves?

Will The author includes Romulus and Remus in the part of his book labeled "Legends." He includes the traditional myth of the twins left to die outside town and raised by wolves, but also includes other historians theories about their origin. Lupa means wolf, but it also was a slang word for prostitute. The king could have allowed his twin sons to be raised by a woman of ill repute because of the earlier omens.
Aidan Duffy Yes. In the opening few chapters, Everitt talks about the legends behind the foundation of Rome. Although it does not go too in depth, there are several pages talking about the two brothers; after that, it focuses on Romulus founding and ruling the city.
