Over 2100 years of history reveal a masterpiece of Virgil, who handles abutments as travel theme of Aeneas and the fall of Troy among others.
In the story that Aeneas leaves Troy had been burned by the Achaeans left the place with his father, son and wife who ends up dying. Sorry embarks on a journey in search of a new life, but must suffer the trip for an extended period of time due to his feud with Juno, the goddess queen of Olympus.
Their displacement leads to the northern part of Africa in the city of Carthage where he was the impressive Queen Dido, who is in love with it thanks to the restless Cupid''s arrow, which is why he held for some years.
While life was pleasant Aeneas in Carthage unlike his fellow Trojans, was unwilling to remain in that place, as it had in mind established its empire in Italy.
Before his departure Dida roused by the hideous harpies is desperate to end by the departure of her lover, to the point that suicide is the sword of Aeneas, cursing the man who dared to leave, committing their people to face to the descendants of Aeneas, the emerging town of Rome, this would be the germ of the confrontations between Carthage and Rome during the Punic Wars confronted.
Since then, Aeneas goes to hell where he converses with his father, who wishes him a prodigious building empire, then, Aeneas visits Lazio, the territory of a ruler named Latino, Lavina name his daughter, betrothed with Shift (band leader Rutulians), but according to the oracle had come to marry a man of the sea (Aeneas) who established an empire unrivaled.
Because of this prophecy, Shift in defense of his wife and Aeneas to war, armed conflict which lasts a couple of years.
Aeneas has the backing of the goddess of love Venus while Juno is supported by Jupiter (the god of gods) but the support is not conclusive and when it appears that''s never going to end the dispute, the balance tips in favor of Aeneas who in a stout battle kills Turnus, married Lavina and establish the kingdom which eventually would be the base of mighty Rome.
