Thank you to both rkomar and Latinandgreek form your comments. I have now completed Book IV and found that Virgil has the Libyan tribes from which Carthage obtained rights to build the city also worshiping the same gods (Jupiter, Juno, etc.). So did Virgil just wanted all involved to be under the influence of the same gods?

In Book IV, things really got good in the sense of drama.

Spoiler:
Aeneas marries poor Queen Dido to make his temporary stay there more pleasant, but when Mercury arrives to tell him that Jupiter wants him to be on his way to Italy he attempts to sneak away without as much as a goodbye to Dido. What a guy! So Dido kills herself, but first lays a curse on the descendents of Aeneas. The good news is that Aeneas is once more available ladies.
