Amulius

Roman - A demi-god. A king of Alba Longa. Son of Proca. Brother of Numitor. He deposed his brother Numitor, and forced his sister Rhea Silvia to become a vestal virgin so that she should not have children who might threaten his position. She nevertheless bore Romulus and Remus to Ares, and Amulius killed her and abandoned the twins in the Tiber. They survived and when they grew up they killed Amulius and restored Numitor to the throne. Sometimes called Amulius.
