Notes for King of Troy TROS of Acadia:
[Adam & Eve.FTW]
Tros succeeded his father Erichthonius to the throne. He gave his name to the land (Troad) and to the people living in the Troad (Trojans). His son, Ganymede was so beautiful, that Zeus in the form of an eagle, abducted the youth. Ganymede became the cupbearer in Olympus. Zeus gave Tros a couple of immortal horses and a vine made of gold, to compensate for abducting the king's son.
The Dardanian people were then divided into two separate groups, between his two other sons by Callirrhoë (Callirrhoe): Ilus and Assaracus. Assaracus succeeded his father and continued to rule at Dardania, while Ilus chose to move closer to the sea. Ilus founded the city that he named Ilium, after himself. Ilium was, however, often called Troy, after his father. The two brothers began to rule two separate houses.
On the Dardanian line, Assaracus' son, Capys, married Themiste, daughter of Ilus and Eurydice. Capys became the father of Anchises. Anchises was a lover of Aphrodite, who bore him a son and hero, Aeneas. Zeus struck Anchises with a thunderbolt, when he boasted of having slept with the love-goddess. He became a cripple, unable to walk. His son ruled Dardania in his place. Aeneas was the only leader, who fought on the Trojan side, to survive the Trojan War.
