Hi

1)Aeneas[I mean, in English it´s the same], dux Troianus, cum muliere [3rd declension, mulier, -eris: ablative in -e] novum oppidum Lavinium condit.

2)No problem, I guess.

Regards,
Gonzalo

For mulier, eris I made a mistake.
Dux Troianus and Troinorum dux is the same.

Thanks.

Placing 'in paludibus' first puts extra emphasis on the fact that it is there the birds are, rather than the fact that it is birds that are in the swamps.
