    Unfortunately for Dido, her relationship with Aeneas is fated to end tragically, partly because Juno and Venus interfere and partly because Aeneas must continue on his journey to fulfill his destiny. In Book IV, Dido knows that her relationship with Aeneas is fated to fail.   For example, let’s recall Aeneas’ relationship with Dido.
