Juno relents

In a moment of the highest importance for the future of Rome, and the plot of the Aeneid, Juno finally relinquishes her enmity towards the Trojans which has seen the city fall and Aeneas harried over land and sea. Her consent is made easier by Jupiter’s agreement that the identity of the people who will become the Romans will remain Italian, and not be subsumed into the speech and customs of the Trojans.
