The stories I love the most are stories about legends, those that seem to come out from the popular imagination. But that ultimately, after doing your research you sense that it may have some truth in them. P.E., the history of the foundation of the city of Rome is based on a legend: the birth of the twins Romulus and Remus, nearly a thousand years before Christ. How much is there truth in this? Namely, the historians “know” for sure this is a legend... But we simply prefer to be inspired by these epic stories, instead of being settled for the boring reality.
I recommend reading this interesting story.
