Gersilia is one of thirty  Sabine women abducted by the Romans .
According to some instructions, her father was King Sabinean Titus Tatius , but this is not a common version  .
Later, Gersilius was identified with Gore, Quirin's wife  .
She was the only married woman among the abductees.  The kidnapped women became the wives of the Romans and gave birth to children, with Gersilius becoming the wife of Romulus and, according to one of the versions, bore him a daughter Accept and a son Avili . 
In the battle between the Romans and the sabins that took place after this, Gersilia was among the Sabinians, who desperately rushed between the fighting and persuaded them in the name of young children to stop the bloodshed  .
According to legend, after the death of Romulus, during a visit to his grave, a star descended from the sky and lit her hair, causing her to rise with a star.
Guest Wife Gostilia
According to other instructions, Gostiny Gostiliy , one of the few who died in the Sabinsky War, became her husband. Their grandson Tull Gostiliy became the third Roman king (after Numa Pompilius, married to another daughter Titus Tatia).
One of the asteroids , discovered in 1879, was named after Gersilia.
