Re: The Roma badge is a cow with 2 kids sucking its udders?

Well being born in Rome I have a slight advantage to the badge lol

First things first, it's a wolf!!! :rolleyes: The 2 children sucking the Wolf is 2 kids called Romulus and Remus (excuse spelling :P:) because the Wolf is looking after the 2 kids after a family member betrayed them and chucked the children in a river when they were babies and picked up by a female Wolf. They then got back there revenge by killing the family member. Romulus and Remus fall out after what the City should be named, ending in Romulus killing Remus. So that's how Rome (short for Romulus) got it's name and it's badge. The old badge was a wolf, the same one that took care of the 2 children :D

End of Class :)

Re: The Roma badge is a cow with 2 kids sucking its udders?

Ive just been looking around at football stuff and i looked closely at the Roma FC badge.. I got a big picture of it and i thought WHAT THE HECK?!?!

I cant seem to get images on :mad: search AS Roma in google images and u will see :P

The Roma badge has a picture of a 'wolf' on it hence the nickname 'i Lupi' (the Wolves). Also if you take note you will know that the picture on Roma's crest descends from Roman history. According to legend Rome was founded by the twins Romulus and Remus who are underneath the wolf on the Roma badge suckling it as infants. A little research always helps before claiming it is a cow ;) .

Romulus (c. 771 BC[1]—c. 717 BC) and Remus (c. 771 BC—c. 753 BC) are the traditional founders of Rome, appearing in Roman mythology as the twin sons of the priestess Rhea Silvia, fathered by the god of war, Mars. According to the tradition recorded as history by Plutarch and Livy, Romulus served as the first King of Rome.

Romulus slew Remus over a dispute about which one of the two brothers had the support of the local gods to rule the new city and give it his name. After founding Rome, Romulus not only created the Roman Legions and the Roman Senate, but also added citizens to his new city by abducting the women of the neighboring Sabine tribes, which resulted in the mixture of the Sabines and Romans into one people. Romulus would become ancient Rome's greatest conqueror, adding large amounts of territory and people to the dominion of Rome.

After his death, Romulus was deified as the god Quirinus, the divine persona of the Roman people. He is now regarded as a mythological figure, and his name a back-formation from the name Rome, which may ultimately derive from a word for "river". Some scholars, notably Andrea Carandini believe in the historicity of Romulus, in part because of the 1988 discovery of the Murus Romuli on the north slope of the Palatine Hill in Rome.

Romulus and Remus are among the most famous feral children in mythology and fiction.

Romulus and Remus were kept safe by the river deity Tiberinus, who made the cradle catch in the roots of a fig tree growing in the Velabrum swamp, which therefore has a high symbolic significance. He then brought the infant twins up onto the Palatine Hill. There, they were nursed by a wolf, Lupa in Latin, a designation also used for female prostitutes and for priestesses of a fox goddess, leading to an alternative theory that the "fox" was human. They were nurtured underneath a fig-tree and were fed by a woodpecker. Both animals were sacred to Mars.

Romulus and Remus were then discovered by Faustulus, a shepherd for Amulius, who brought the children to his home. Faustulus and his wife, Acca Larentia, raised the boys as their own.

In another Roman legend Hercules married Acca Larentia off to the shepherd Faustulus, who saved the lives of the twins Romulus and Remus after they had been thrown into the Tiber. She had twelve sons, and on the death of one of them, Romulus took his place. He and the remaining eleven, founded the college of the Arval brothers Fratres Arvales. Acca Larentia is therefore identified with the Dea Dia of that collegium. The flamen Quirinalis acted in the role of Romulus (deified as Quirinus) to perform funerary rites for his foster mother (as the goddess).

Romulus and Remus discovered by a gentle shepherd.

Another tradition relates that Romulus and Remus were suckled by a wolf, has been explained by the suggestion that Larentia was called lupa (courtesan, literally she-wolf) on account of her immoral character (Livy i. 4; Ovid, Fasti, iii. 55).

I've known this since i was 6. Whatsamatter with you guys? :D
