King Aeneas de Troy

According to the Royal Genealogies, and other sources--
Anchises I and Aphrodite (Venus in Roman sources) had son Aeneas.
AENEAS, King of Latium in 1177 B.C., "the Father of the Roman Nation," married Creusa.

During the Trojan War, Aeneas, who some time before had been driven from Mount Ida by Achilles, was wounded by Diomedes 2 and, having fainted, would have died if his mother had not come to his rescue.

"Aeneas was the brother-in-law of Paris and Helen of Troy, and it is said that when Troy was taken, "Aeneas with a band of his fellow citizens, defended bravely their part of the City, till the Greeks gave them leave to depart in safety with as much of their goods as each could carry. Accordingly, all of them carried off gold and silver and other precious things portable; except Aeneas, who only carried off his own father, Anchises, upon his shoulders. Upon which, the wondering Greeks generously allowed him to carry off likewise what goods he pleased. But Aeneas only chose his household goods, which made the Greeks' admiration still more, and they gave him leave to go with his Trojans to what place he pleased."

"After the destruction of Troy, Aeneas came into Italy and after many valiant exploits, he was given Lavinia, daughter of Latinus, King of Latium, as his second wife. He built a city calling it Lavinium, in honor of his Queen, and caused his subjects to be called Latines in honor of his father-in-law, whom he succeeded as King of Latium."

The journey of Aeneas from Troy, 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 and Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida.

The Julian family of Rome, most notably Gaius Julius Caesar and Augustus, traced their lineage to Ascanius and Aeneas. The legendary kings of Britain also trace their family through a grandson of Aeneas, Brutus.
