Province of Italy, ruled by Latinus, 377;Æneas comes to, 372.
Latinus found it extremely difficult to withstand this torrent.
Now, therefore, let us make ready to carry the war against the city of Latinus.
A battle took place, Turnus and Latinus fell, and Æneas gained the victory and his father-in-law's kingdom as well.
The country around was governed by a prince named Latinus, the son of Faunus and the nymph Marica.
Silvius begat Æneas, from Æneas sprang Latinus, and Latinus was succeeded by Pastis.
Latinus, king of the country, received them hospitably, and promised the hand of his daughter Lavinia in marriage to Æneas.
Then for awhile King Latinus kept silence, fixing his eyes upon the ground.
The name of the queen, her mother, the wife of Latinus, was Amata.
Latinus immediately concluded that the Trojan hero was no other than the promised son-in-law announced by the oracle.
