The queen wins the sympathy of most of the readers because she comes out as a strong leader. Dido is a favorite because her character is well developed by the author. In order to understand Dido’s character, a reader is forced to understand other characters such as Kirke, the sorcerer. The sorcerer disrupted the hero, Dido, from attaining her goals. The character is made to fall in love with Aeneas in order to develop the story and give it a new twist. Dido’s character surpasses her precursors in humanity and complexity. The first contact between Dido and the reader is made with Dido as a widow. She is distinguished from the other characters because she has a meaningful past, which influences her future.

Readers love her courage and determination in defending her kingdom and protecting it against the surrounding enemies (Virgil and Allen 31).
