Publius Vergilius Maro (15 October 70 BC - 21 September 19 BC) better known in English as Virgil, was a Roman songster, the writer of the Eclogues, the Georgics, and the Aeneid, the last of which being a great saga of twelve books that became Rome's folkstale.


Virgil was born in the thorpe of Andes, near Mantua in today's northern Italy. The forebears of Virgil were Celts and un-Roman Italians.

Early worksEdit

Virgil began his learning when he was five years old. He later went to Rome speechcraft, healing, and starlore, which he soon forsook for thoughtcraft. At this time, when Virgil was in the learnhouse of Siro the Epicurean, he began writing songs. Though we have some lesser songs which are said to have been written by the youthful Virgil, these are mostly believed to be fake. One, the Catalepton, is made up of fourteen short songs, some of which may be Virgil's, and another, a short tale named Culex, was said to be Virgil's within a hundred years of his death. These songs together are known as the Appendix Vergiliana.
