Aeneas, journeying to his fated destination, encounters foul weather and is forced to land is fleet on the Libyan coast. There he is welcomed by the widowed Dido, queen of Carthage. Books 2 and 3 contain Aeneas' account(told to Dido) of events both natural and supernatural that have led him to her shore. In book 4 Dido confesses her love for Aeneas, who (though he regrets his fate) is then forced by the gods to set sail again. Dido prepares to kill herself. The trojans, in Book 5, journey to Sicily, where they engage in a series of competitions to commemmorate the anniversary of the death of Aeneas' father, Anchises. They then set sail again. Book 6 is the account of Aeneas' journey to the underworld and Elysium, where he meets the ghosts of Dido and Anchises, among others. In this book, the destiny of Rome is revealed. Books 8-12 relate the fate of the Trojans as they reach the Tiber and are received by Latinus, king of the region. Other latins (encouraged by the gods) resent the arrival of the Trojans and the projected marriage alliance between Aeneas and Latvia, Lainus' daughter.
