Anchises, Aeneas' father died shortly thereafter and while Aeneas was still mourning his loss, Juno, who hated every Trojan, stirred up a terrible tempest, which drove the ships to the south, until, just as the sea began to calm down, they came into a beautiful bay, enclosed by tall cliffs with woods overhanging them.

A Trojan hero, Aeneas was one of the main heroes of the "Iliad," and the primary character of Virgil's "Aeneid." Aeneas, the son of Anchises (a mortal) and Aphrodite, was the leader of the Dardanians, allies of Troy.
Aeneas is another example of the pious and sympathetic Trojan (though he was actually an ally of the Trojans and not "Trojan" in the truest sense).
The House of Aeneas did have some conflict with the House of Priam; nevertheless, Aeneas was destined for greatness, as his issue supposedly founded Rome (an attempt by the Romans to tie their lineage to the Greeks whom they admired).

Aeneas is portrayed here almost as a rube or country bumpkin gawking at the sites of the first urban and cultured setting he has ever encountered.
Aeneas is able to identify the scenes depicted on these reliefs, but he seems able to do so, only because the scenes illustrate the terrible fall of Troy; something he has experienced himself.
Moreover, Aeneas doesn't consider the fact that in a few moments he is going to place himself at the mercy of Dido, the woman who commissioned this temple in honor of Troy's immortal enemy.

Aeneas finally disembarks in the fields of Latium but at first encounters hostile Latin tribes under the rule of King Latinus.
Unless Aeneas lived to a canonic age, it is very unlikely that he or the Trojans had anything to do with the founding of Rome.
Such tales of Aeneas and the founding of Rome coincide more closely with the earliest Greek colonial settlements in Sicily, Italy, and southern France in the 9th Century and it is probably from there that the Romans derived this fancy tale as to their origins.

 The Story of Aeneas   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-15)
AEneas and his companions did not know what land was meant by the “ancient mother,” but Anchises, “revolving in his mind the legends of the men of old,” remembered having heard that one of his ancestors, Teu'cer, (the father-in-law of Dardanus), had come from the island of Crete.
AEneas was in deep distress at the spectacle of the sorrowing queen, yet he dared not yield to her entreaties, since it was the decree of the fates and the command of Jupiter that he should remain no longer in Carthage.
AEneas was much distressed by this misfortune, and he began to think that it might be better, even in disregard of the fates, and the prophecies, to remain in Sicily, than to make any further attempt to reach the promised Italian land.

Aeneas is shipwrecked, and Dido (also an outcast from her homeland, setting out to found Carthage) gets Aeneas to tell her his story, in which he recasts the tale of the Trojan War and his own journey in terms that will lead to Rome.
There is jealousy and rage because Aeneas eventually has to leave; Dido dies in a dramatic fashion, but not before her soul being given a blessed release by the favoured gods.
From the passionate affair between Aeneas and Dido to Aeneas' duty and quest to establish the new Troy (i.e., Rome) the reader will not only be entertained, but also thought provoked with the various concepts presented by Virgil.

Aeneas is very much like the Maximus character portrayed in the film 'Gladiator' and Artorius in 'King Arthur': enduring, brave, noble, honest, kind.
To lead this mission are required brave leaders and warriors, of which Aeneas and his followers are the ideal and the Emperor and Roman elite the reality.
At the time of writing, Rome was seen as the greatest political unit that had ever existed, and none of this was lost on the author of this nation's greatest poem.

Aeneas may be a more appealing figure than Aristaeus (I think he is), but the poem may be telling us that he comes up a winner only because he shares some of Aristaeus' insensitivity.
Aeneas begins to move in the right direction: the end of Dido's hold on Aeneas, which would not have happened if Anchises was alive.
Aeneas is obsessed with his father's death and he is not able, therefore, to be a leader.

The task is not an easy one: Aeneas the True and his compatriots are plagued by bad weather and the hallmarks of myth (the Cyclopes from the Odyssey make a brief cameo), while the Gods above, vindictive and conspiring, seek to either halt or hurry along their progress.
The second half of the book dictates the arrival of the Trojans to Latium (Italy), the resistance they meet from the natives, and the establishment of Rome proper.
The love of Dido and Aeneas, the Sack of Troy, the descent into the underworld, and the war over Italy's future are matched by few scenes in ANY work.
