De septem Romanorum regibus [Translation help, please!]

Salvete!

I'd be much obliged if anyone were willing to help me with a few sentences from a text of the seven kings of Rome.

So, here we go (I may pop ...

latin dipthongs "ai" and "oi" ??

How do you pronounce the Latin words maior and troianus?
Are ai and oi dipthongs in Latin?
