aeneas - In classical legend, Trojan hero. According to the story in Virgil's Aeneid, after the fall of Troy he escaped with his father Anchises and his son Ascanius or Iulus. After much wandering he was driven by a storm to Carthage, where he won the love of Dido, its queen, who, being abandoned by him, committed suicide. He afterwards made his way to Latium in Italy, where Latinus, the king, promised him his daughter Lavinia in marriage. Turnus, a native chief and former suitor of Lavinia, refused to give her up; war ensued between the rivals and Turnus was killed. Aeneas married Lavinia and became the ancestor of the Romans. Killed in battle while fighting against the Rutu-lians, he was worshipped as a god. See Virgil.
