Creon was the King of Thebes.[1]

In 1277 B.C., as Creon's son-in-law Hercules was achieving the final of his Twelve Labors of Hercules by going to the Underworld to rescue Theseus, everyone thought him dead. Those thinking him dead included a noble euboean named Lycus, who took advantage of his absence to seize Thebes, kill Creon, and condemn his daughter Megara (Hercules' wife) and her three sons to death.[1]
