Aeneas was the son of Aphrodite. He was a great warrior, second only to Hector among the Trojans. He was one of the few Trojans who survived the war. He traveled far to find a new home after the fall of Troy. The Romans claim him as an ancestor to the founders of Rome. (Click here for more of the details of his journey)
