The son of Aeneas (q.v.) and Creüsa. According to the ordinary account, he accompanied his father to Italy, and, thirty years after the building of Lavinium, founded Alba Longa, where, after his death, his step-brother Silvius reigned. To him, by his name of Iulus, the gens Iulia traced its origin. See Trojan War.
