aeneas decided to follow the will of jupiter and find a new city for the trojans to stay after the trojan war.
juno hated the trajans because paris chose aphrodite over her as the most beautiful goddess she also knew aeneas' decendants would go on to destroy carthage, her favourite city. so she persuaded aeolus, keeper of the winds, to create a storm which sent the trojans off the coast of lybia.
they met the queen of carthage,dido. aeneas told her what happened in troy. in delos apollo, god of prophecy, told aeneas he must settle in the land of his forefathers. anchises, aeneas' father, told him this must mean crete. when the trojans got to crete they were hit by the plague and the gos visited aeneas in a dream and told him his true homeland was italy.
soon it became clear aeneas and dido were in love and dido thought they were married so when aeneas had to leave for italy dido jumped onto a funeral pyre and stabbed herself to death, cursing aeneas with her dying breathe.
the trojans went to sicily where they held funeral games for anchises. anchesis visited aeneas in a vision to tell him to visit the underworld before heading to italy which he did. when he saw dido and tried to apologise for breaking her heart she refused to speak to him. aeneas was soon reunited with his father who showed him the future of all his descendants.
once aeneas arrived in italy theking on the latins, latinus, offered him his daughter, lavinia, in marriage but she was already engaged to a latin warlord named turnus. aeneas and turnus were destined to fight but juno delayed the dual as long as possible. aeneas' companion, pallas, fought bravely and died causing aeneas to go on a killing spree. eventually aeneas killed turnus in single combat.
