Raised by Wolves: 4 Wolf Children in Wolf/ Werewolf Mythology

Raised by Wolves: 4 Wolf Children in Wolf/ Werewolf Mythology

WEREWOLVES IN MYTHOLOGY:

Raised by wolves? Werewolves perhaps? 4 accounts about 4 wolf children that may or may not have been werewolves. Romulus and Remus, The wolf boys of Hesse, John of Liege, and The Wolf Girl of Devil’s River

What does that phrase Raised by wolves really mean?

Everyone talks about the wolfman , the Lycan, the lycanthrope when it comes to werewolves but no one ever talks about the feral wolf child. If you ever thought that feral children had nothing to do with werewolf mythology, think again. Because the phrase wild/child and idiom raised by wolves is closely associated and attached to the werewolf than you can ever know.
