The legendary story of Aeneas, a Trojan who travelled to Italy, where he became the ancestor of the Romans. At a banquet given in honour of the Trojans, Aeneas recounts the events that occasioned the Trojans' arrival. He begins the tale shortly after the war described in the Iliad: Crafty Ulysses devised a way for Greek warriors to gain entry into Troy by hiding in a large wooden horse.
