  • Note: Builder of Troy. Tros succeeded his father Erichthonius to the throne. He gave his name to th e land (Troad) and to the people living in the Troad (Trojans). His son, Ganymede was so beau tiful, that Zeus in the form o f an eagle, abductedthe youth. Ganymede became the cupbearer i n Olympus. Zeus gave Tros acouple of immortal horses and a vine made of gold, to compensate f or abducting the king's son. . The Dardanian people were then divided into two separate group s, between his two other sons by CallirrhoŽ (Callirrhoe): Ilus and Assaracus.Assaracus succee ded hisfather and continued to rule at Darda nia, whileIlus chose to move closer to the sea . Ilus founded the city that he namedIlium, after himself. Ilium was, however, often called T roy, after hisfather. The two brothers began to rule two sep arate houses. . On the Dardania n line, Assaracus' son, Capys, married Themiste, daughterof Ilus and Eurydice. Capys became t he father of Anchises. Anchises was alover of Aphrodite, who bore him a son and hero, Aenea s . Zeus struckAnchises with a thunderbolt, when he boasted of having slept with thelove-goddes s. He became a cripple, unable to walk. His son ruled Dardaniain his place. Aeneas was the on ly leader, w hofought on the Trojan side, to survive the Trojan War. . MYTHOLOGY: Son of Eric hthonius and Astyoche, a daughter of the River Simois. His wife was also a river nymph, Calli rrhoa, daughter of the Scamander.
