::concepts



"The Wandering Prince of Troy" is a 17th-century ballad which provides an account of the interactions between Aeneas, the mythical founder of Rome, and Dido, queen of Carthage. The narrative of the ballad parallels events which take place mostly in books 1-4 of the Aeneid. Like many ballads from the period, "The Wandering Prince of Troy" was often printed on a broadside. Various copies of such broadside facsimiles exist today in multiple libraries: the National Library of Scotland, the British Library, the library at the University of Glasgow, and the library at Magdalene College, Cambridge. Online facsimiles of the ballad broadsides are also available.<ref>English Broadside Ballad Archive</ref>
