|Family tree of the Latin kings of Alba Longa|
Capetus or Capetus Silvius (said to have reigned 934-921 BC)(Latin: Căpĕtŭs Sĭluĭŭs) was a descendant of Aeneas and one of the legendary Latin kings of Alba Longa. He was the son of Capys, and the father of Tiberinus, after whom the Tiber river was named. Geoffrey of Monmouth asserted in his Historia Regum Britanniae that Silvius (who he calls "Sylvius Epitus") succeeded Capys at the same time that Solomon began to build the Temple in Jerusalem and was visited by the Queen of Sheba, and king Leil of Britain founded Carlisle.
