Roman mythology, Latinus is sometimes the son of Faunusand Maricaand father of Laviniawith his wife, Amata. In Roman mythology, Latinus, Lavinius or Latium was a king of the Latins. He hosted Aeneas's army of exiled Trojans and let them reorganize their life in Latium. His daughter Lavinia had been promised to Turnus, king of the Rutuli, but Latinus preferred to offer her to Aeneas; Turnus consequently declared war on Aeneas (at the urging of Juno). The outcome was that Turnus was killed and his people captured. Ascanius, the son of Aeneas, founded Alba Longaand was the first in a long series of kings.
