yeah thanks bro. are the Romans the descendants of the Trojans?
There is a greek myth about that, it's unclear if it has any truth to it but it is possible that the first roman king was from Troy
Hmm, you mean Romulus? I'm not too sure where Remus and Romulus were from, only that they were orphaned, and supposdely "raised by wolves" or something.
No, their great grandfather supposedly fled during the battle of Troy aboard a boat. He came upon Italy after a few years sailing and started a settlement. His decendants were supposedly Romulus and Remus who were thrown in a river by their cruel uncle so that he could take the thrown. They were raised by wolves till they were 3 and then a farmer found them and raised them as his own. Somehow eventualy they learned of their past and went back to the city to reclaim their thrown, they banished their uncle and set up joint controle of the city till they got greedy and killed each other to gain control, Romulus killed Remus and the city was named Rome after him. However he had few citizens, local prisons had a great many men captured for various crimes, Romulus loosed them on the city and now he had men, but needed women. So he invited the families of the nearby towns and cities and while the men were drunk stole their women away and killed the men. Most of this is a myth and if there is any truth to it, it probaly lies towards the beginning somewhere

You are talking about Aeneas (see Vergillius). He founded Lavinium, his son founded Alba Longa, where Amulius dethroned Numitor, and imprisoned his daughter, Rhea Silvia. She was visited by Mars, and gave birth to the twins. The rest of your story has been recorded by Livius.
but it is possible that the first roman king was from Troy
No. The theory has been refuted in the 19th century. So unless you can come up with some evidence (source of name? connection with Troy in language, culture, writing,...), it remains a piece of fiction.
Hmm, the actual existence of the Trojan War is still in doubt, isn't it?

Almost everything is in doubt in ancient history ;). We have found Troy, and are quite sure there was - at some point - a war with Greeks, but we're not sure *which* of them was destroyed by the Greeks.
I heard that some people found some ruins which are thought to be of the Trojans somewhere near Turkey.
