  General Notes:

aka Elissar (Elishat) `the Wanderer' of QART-HADASHT (or of ZORUS (TYRE)); aka Tanit the GODDESS; eponym of the Dido Problem in Mathematics
Note: She is probably a combination of history and myth. If even a fraction of the myths (see bio above) are true, she was one of the most incredible women in history! She is supposedly ancestress of Zenobia (a famous historic warrior-queen) and great-niece of Jezebel.

Elissa married Aeneas `the Dardanian' (King) of LATIUM, son of Anchises the DARDANIAN and Aphrodite Pandemos the OLYMPIAN.
