Who is Aeneas Silvius?
Aeneas Silvius is the son of Silvius, in some versions grandson of Ascanius and great-grandson or grandson of Aeneas. He is the third in the list of the mythical kings of Alba Longa in Latium, and the Silvii regarded him as the founder of their house. Dionysius of Halicarnassus ascribes to him a reign of 31 years. Ovid does not mention him among the Alban kings. According to Livy and Dionysius the heir of Aeneas Silvius was named Latinus Silvius.
