How was Rome founded?

 Q:   Ask a Question about How was Rome founded?       
How was Rome founded? According to legend, Rome was founded in 753bc by twin brothers called Romulus and Remus, who had been raised by a she-wolf. By 509bc the original Etruscan inhabitants of Rome had been driven out, and by 275bc Rome controlled most of Italy.

The Phoenicians were great rivals of Rome, and they were finally defeated by the Romans in the Punic Wars (264-1 46bc). After this, the Romans were able to extend their empire with little organized resistance.

At its greatest, in the ad 1OOs, the Roman Empire covered half of Europe, much of the Middle East and the north coast of Africa.
