WHAT DOES ANCHISES MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Anchises

Anchises

In Greek mythology, Anchises (/ænˈkaɪsiːz/, an-KY-seez or (/æŋˈkaɪsiːz/ ang-KY-seez; Ancient Greek: Ἀγχίσης, pronounced ) was the son of Capys and Themiste (daughter of Ilus, who was son of Tros). He was the father of Aeneas and a prince from Dardania, a territory neighbouring Troy. His major claim to fame in Greek mythology is that he was a mortal lover of the goddess Aphrodite (and in Roman mythology, the lover of Venus). One version is that Aphrodite pretended to be a Phrygian princess and seduced him for nearly two weeks of lovemaking. Anchises learned that his lover was a goddess only nine months later, when she revealed herself and presented him with the infant Aeneas. Aphrodite had warned him that if he boasted of the affair, he would be blasted by the thunderbolt of Zeus. He did and was scorched and/or crippled. One version has this happening after he bred his mares with the divine stallions owned by King Laomedon. The principal early narrative of Aphrodite's seduction of Anchises and the birth of Aeneas is the Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite.
