Son of Anchises and the goddess Aphrodite, Aeneas took part in the Trojan war, distinguishing himself in that conflict. He accompanied Paris on the latter's mission to abduct Helen from Troy. He also descended to the Underworld, accompanied by the Sibyl. There he encountered the woman who had loved him in the upper world, but whom he had had to leave, Dido. When he tried to speak to her, she turned away in silence. Aeneas met his father, Anchises, in Hades too, and here veiled to his son the future glories of Rome. Aeneas was one of the few people who escaped the sack of Troy.
