Storyboard Text

  • Aeneas was a Trojan hero, the son of the prince Anchises and the goddess Venus (Aphrodite). His father was a first cousin of King Priam of Troy (both being grandsons of Ilus, founder of Troy), making Aeneas a second cousin to Priam's children (such as Hector and Paris). He is a character in Greek mythology and is mentioned in Homer's Iliad. Aeneas receives full treatment in Roman mythology, most extensively in Virgil's Aeneid, where he is an ancestor of Romulus and Remus .
  • When the Greeks invaded Troy, Aeneas did not join the conflict immediately. Some versions of the myth say that he entered the war on the side of his fellow Trojans only after the Greek hero Achilles had stolen his cattle. Aeneas's reluctance to join the fighting stemmed, in part, from the prickly relationship he had with King Priam of Troy. 
  •  After surviving many dangers Aeneas and his Trojan followers landed on the coast of North Africa. Along the way, his father died.  Dido and Aeneas fell in love soon after the hero arrived in Carthage. Aeneas stayed with the queen until Mercury, the messenger of the gods, reminded him that his destiny lay in Italy. Aeneas sorrowfully but obediently sailed away. When he looked back, he saw smoke and flames. abandoned, Dido had thrown herself onto a funeral pyre.
