The answer to this question could go either way. I would say that yes, Aeneas had to leave Dido. It was necessary that he put duty and honor before love. He had to put the priorities of his people and the future of his child above all else. After his vision of Mercury, and the reminder Mercury gives him of his true destiny, I don't think he ever saw himself as having a choice.
