Aeneas in Wikipedia
In Greco-Roman mythology, Aeneas (Greek: Αἰνείας, Aineías,
derived from Greek Αἰνή meaning "to praise"; pronounced /ɪ
ˈniːəs/ in English) was a Trojan hero, the son of the prince
Anchises and the goddess Aphrodite. His father was also the
second cousin of King Priam of Troy. The journey of Aeneas
from Troy (with help from Aphrodite), which led to the
founding of the city Rome, is recounted in Virgil's Aeneid. He
is considered an important figure in Greek and Roman legend
and history. Aeneas is a character in Homer's Iliad, Quintus
Smyrnaeus' Posthomerica, and Shakespeare's Troilus and
Cressida. In the Iliad, Aeneas is the leader of Troy's
Dardanian allies (Trojans - descendants of Dardanus), and a
principal lieutenant of Hector, son of the Trojan king Priam.
In the poem, Aeneas' mother Aphrodite frequently comes to his
aid on the battlefield; he is also a favorite of Apollo...
