Publius Vergilius Maro (Octo 70 BCE – Septem 19 BCE), usually called Virgil or Vergil /ˈvɜrdʒəl/ in English, was an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period.

About The Aeneid. The Aeneid, the story of a band of survivors who leave their destroyed city to seek another home in a faraway country, is about rebirth, about life springing forth from ruin and is primarily a fiction whose narrative fabric, woven from myth and legend, traces a pattern that appears in the most profound myths that concern the human spirit's eternal quest for self.

Roman, Logan, Patton and Virgil are the Princes of the Anthis Kingdom and their lives are going well for the most part. But what happens when members of the nobility begin to disappear, the thread holding the brothers' lives together begins to unravel and truths are uncovered that maybe were bet. Throughout Book VI, Virgil leaves little doubt that Aeneas's future glory remains fated, no matter how often the Trojan hero questions the outcome of his wandering. For the third time in the poem, he is referred to as "duty bound," and Deiphobë informs him that his troops will reach Lavinian country, named for his wife-to-be. This passage is part of the speech Anchises delivers to Aeneas in the underworld, in Book VI, as he unfolds for his son the destiny of Rome. Virgil places his own political ideals in the mouth of the wise father, warning that the Roman nation should be more merciful than violent, even in its conquests.
