Document Summary

From the date of the founding of the city, april 21. The origins of rome lay in a uniquely greek experience, the trojan war. Their beginning starts with the end of troy. Laocoon said that the horse spelled the doom of troy, but they did it anyway. Try as they might, they couldn"t kill all of the trojans. They sailed away and escaped the fall of the city. Aeneas carries his father, ankeses and his son, askanios (nicknamed julus: escaped the fall of the city, leave with a mission in mind. Historically true that the romans and the descendants of dido hated each other. Hannibal, most famous carthiginian general: myth explained the historic hatred between the 2 people. Wasn"t rome yet though: welcomed by the local king, latinus. Adaptability was a great strength: they assimilate well, latinus welcomes aeneas and betrothes him to his daughter lavinia, marries into the existing culture, only one problem; she"s already engaged to turnus.
