IULUS ASCANIUS ap Aeneas
IULUS ASCANIUS ap Aeneas. King of Alba Longa (Latium on the western shore of Lago di Albano, near Rome).
Son of AENEAS and CREUSA.
In 1181 B.C. Troy was destroyed by the Greeks after a long siege... Aeneas escaped from Troy, with his son Ascanius (Escanius), and came by boat to Italy.
In Greek and Roman mythology, Ascanius was the son of the Trojan prince Aeneas and Creusa, daughter of Priam. After the Trojan War, as the city burned, Aeneas escaped to Latium in Italy, taking his father Anchises and his child Ascanius with him, though Creusa died during the escape. (wikipedia).
According to Dionysius of Halicarnassus, Ascanius' original name was Euryleon and this name was changed to Ascanius after his flight from Troy. According to Virgil, Ascanius was also called Iulus or Julus. The Gens Julia, or the Julians, the clan to which Julius Caesar belonged, claimed to have been descended from Ascanius/Iulus, his father Aeneas, and, ultimately, the goddess Venus, the mother of Aeneas in myth, his father being the mortal Anchises. According to Dionysius of Halicarnassus, however, Julus was a son of Ascanius who disputed the succession of the kingdom of Alba Longa with Silvius, upon the death of Ascanius. (wikipedia).
According to another legend mentioned by Livy, Ascanius may have been the son of Aeneas and Lavinia and thus born in Latium, not Troy. Ascanius later fought in the Italian Wars along with his father Aeneas. (wikipedia).
After the death of Aeneas, Ascanius became king of Lavinium and an Etruscan king named Mezentius took advantage of the occasion to besiege the city. Mezentius succeeded in making the city surrender and agree to pay a yearly tribute. Upon his retirement, Ascanius fell upon him and his army unaware and entirely defeated Mezentius and killed his son Lausus. Mezentius was forced to agree to pay a yearly tribute. Subsequent to this, exactly thirty years after the founding of Lavinium, Ascanius founded the city of Alba Longa and became its first king. He left his mother, Lavinia, in charge of the city of Lavinium. Ascanius was succeeded by Silvius, who was either the younger brother of Ascanius or his son. Ascanius died in the 28th year of his reign. (wikipedia).
Ascanius was the progenitor of the Julian gens, to which family Caius Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) belonged. When Aeneas' last day came, Ascanius was elected King. He founded the town of Alba on the bank of the Tiber.
He ascended to the throne of Latium upon the death of his father in 1175 B.C.
He was the founder of Alba Longa (Latium on the western shore of Lago di Albano), the city near which Rome was founded in 753 BC.
