Num casus Troiae Didoni ignotum erat?
ignotum non erat.

Perseus wrote:Quid Aeneas deae narravit?
narravit quem fuisse aut quibus ab oris venisse.

you need an indirect question instead of AcI

Quid Venus Aeneae nuntiavit?
nuntiavit socios tuos salvos fuisse.

are you addressing the reader?

Quid Dido Troianis pollicitus est?
auxilio dimisisse opibusque iuvavisse pollicitus est.

As about first, please advice how the answer should be? can you right one with indirect question as you suggested?

As about 2nd and 3rd how about these?

Quid Venus Aeneae nuntiavit?
nuntiavit socios eius salvos fuisse.

Quid Dido Troianis pollicitus est?
Dido Troianis auxilio dimisisse opibusque iuvavisse pollicitus est.

Sorry, in the first example, it should be quis, which introduces an indirect statement, so you need the subjunctive, not AcI. Pay attention to the sequence of tenses.

Dido is feminine as she was queen of Carthage. But in the main question it is used 'pollicitus est'. Isn't it wrong and shouldn't it be 'pollicita est'?

Is below correct?

Quid Aeneas deae narravit?
narravit quis esset aut quibus ab oris veniret.
