Stephen knows a little something about fighting with a brother, but hopefully he and Frederic will never go as far as Cain and Abel, or Romulus and Remus. He's begun his studies of Ancient Rome, beginning with its legendary founders.
Similarities between Cain and Abel and Romulus and Remus
Brothers often don’t get along well: Cain and Abel and Romulus and Remus are two extreme examples. Both pairs were brothers, and in each pair, one met a sad fate. Both pairs were looking for signs from the their god or gods. Looking for these signs caused a fight in which one brother killed the other. Brothers do not normally kill each other in a fight. The reason that one killed his brother was because each one was angry with the other brother. Cain killed Abel because God liked Abel’s gift better. Romulus killed Remus because Remus mocked his small wall. Before this happened in either pair they were both happy together. There are many similar things between Cain and Abel and Romulus and Remus, but the main similarity is that one brother killed the other.
