MYTHOLOGY SERIES: DIDO: (Roman Myth):
DIDO was born a princess of Tyre in Phoenicia, and later became the queen of Carthage.
After her husband was killed by her brother, Dido escaped Phoenicia with a small group of followers and settled in Carthage, where she bought land. When the Trojan hero Aeneas arrived in Carthage after being blown off course, Dido welcomed him with great compassion.
Dido and Aeneas fell in love, but Jupiter soon sent Mercury to deliver a message to Aeneas, reminding him that his destiny was to found a new Troy in Italy and ordered him to resume his journey.
When Aeneas had sailed away, Dido became so overcome with grief that she stabbed herself and threw herself in the flames of a pyre.
There have been many arguments over whether Dido was a mythological figure, or an actual historical person:
Michael Grant in Roman Myths (1973) claims: ”Dido-Elissa was originally a goddess.”
It has been conjectured that she was first converted from a goddess into a human queen in some Greek work of the later 5th century BC.
But others argue that Dido was indeed historical, as described in the following accounts:
It is not known who first combined the story of Dido with the tradition that connected Aeneas either with Rome or with earlier settlements from which Rome traced its origin.
