Origin and early years

Agamemnon was the son of Atreus, king of Mycenae, and his wife Queen Aërope, granddaughter of King Minos of Crete. He had a brother, Menelaus.

When his father was murdered and his kingship usurped by Aegistus, the brothers fled to Sparta.

There, Agamemnon married the Spartan princess Clytemnestra. He returned to Mycenae, defeated Aegisthus, and became king.[1] At some point, he became the High King of the Argives.[2]

Trojan War

When Menelaus' wife Helen was abducted by Prince Paris of Troy, he gathered the Achaeans,[1] and led them in the siege of Troy.[2]

He was killed by his wife and her lover Aegisthus.[3]



  • Based on the figure from Greek mythology, one of the main characters of the Iliad.
