Rome

Rome

The ancient capital of Italy, founded by Romulus and Remus, twin brothers raised by wolves.

  • Although Remus shares the name of one of the founders of Rome, he does not have a twin brother named Romulus (JKR). However, he used the name Romulus on the Wizarding Wireless anti-Voldemort show, Potterwatch (DH22).
  • Witch Orabella Nuttley repaired the ancient Coliseum with a Mending Charm after a broom race between Scotland's Torquil MacTavish and Italy's Silvio Astolfi ended in disaster. She was given the Order of Merlin for her achievement (BoS).
