African History

According to ancient Greek and Roman sources, who was the founder and first queen of the Phoenician city-state of Carthage?
In the sources, she is described as a clever and enterprising woman who flees her ruthless and autocratic brother, Pygmalion, after discovering that he was responsible for her husband Acerbas's death.
Details about the queen's character, life, and role in the founding of Carthage are best known from the account given in Virgil's epic poem, the Aeneid.
