Æ N E Ï s,
King Latinus entertains Æneas, and promises him his only daughter,
Lavinia, the heiress of his crown. Turnus, being in love with her, favoured by her mother, and stirred up by Juno and Alecto, breaks the treaty which was made, and engages in his quarrel Mezentius, Camilla, Meffapus, and many other of the neighbouring princes; whose forces and the names of their commanders are particularly related.
And thou, O matron of immortal fame!
Æneas' infancy. Here rest thy bones in rich Hesperia’s plains : 5 Thy name ('tis all a ghost can have) remains.
Now, when the prince her fun’ral rites had paid, He plough'd the Tyrrhene seas with sails display'd.
