Aeneas with his brother, father, and others fled the burning city of Troy. Eventually, Aeneas lands at the mouth of the Tiber River. The men in the group wanted to continue travelling; however, the women did not. The women burned the ships and stranded the Trojans. Some legends claim that Rome was named after Roma, a woman who was travelling with Aeneas. Aeneas was an ancestor of Rome's founders - Romulus and Remus. This legend was written as part of the Aeneid written by Virgil.
