Although Andromache adheres to the formal practice of female lamentation in Homeric epic, the raw emotion of her discovery yields a miserable beginning to a new era in her life without her husband and, ultimately, without a home. That is a work of fiction. However, Andromache is seen in Iliad 6 in an unusual place for the traditional housewife, standing before the ramparts of Troy 6. He was one of the strongest, bravest, and most noble man in history and his memory would be carried on through the epic journey of his half-brother Aeneas, final heir to the throne of Troy. Only three men survived, and they ran as far away from Troy as possible.
They fucked with guys on both sides, and poor Hector was no exception. And just as people today think what they see on television is true, so with the audiences of the bards. The rest is based on oral transmission which, after about three generations, becomes so corrupted that it is impossible to determine which is fact and which is fiction and embellishment. If he goes to Troy, he will find everlasting glory and renown but will die. The Greeks were fearful of leaving a son of Hector alive; for the vengeful son might come back to haunt them in future years. Andromache's sudden tactical lecture is a way to keep Hector close, by guarding a section of the wall instead of fighting out in the plains.
As the greatest warrior in history, he is most definitely convincing. Achilles kills Hector Achilles, meanwhile, prepares to fight Hector, although Briseis begs him not to fight her cousin as he is a good man. Achilles has the temple of sacked, and claims — a priestess and the cousin of Paris and Hector — as a prisoner. These then burst into flame when they hit the flame, causing havoc in the Greek camp. Problems arose though when it became apparent that Hermione could not bear any children; a situation made worse when Andromache gave birth to three sons for Neoptolemus. In this way, he injects a sense of rhythm into what would otherwise be a numbing litany of mass destruction. At least until the King of Sparta realized the younger prince Paris had made off with his wife.
Odysseus and Achilles organise a resistance but Hector and the Trojans charge into the camp. While there, he meets , Achilles' cousin and student. I argue that his tragedy is in actuality a meditation upon the psychological character of Andromache in Vergil's Aeneid, and that Andromaque acts as an exposition and an explanation of the events that lead up to Andromache's fate and characterization in Vergil's Aeneid. Sure, his armor and his weapons were forged by the god Hephaestus and he was unequivocally the strongest and toughest of all the Greek warriors, but he honestly spends like two-thirds of the fucking Iliad sulking in a corner pouting about some stupid shit or another. Initially Hector stays behind the walls of Troy for a prophecy had been made that Hector would die at the hands of Achilles. After Paris' death, Helen was married to his brother.
After Hector's death in Iliad 22, Andromache's foremost concern is Astyanax's fate as a mistreated orphan 22. According to Homer, who wrote the Iliad which described the war, the cause of the Trojan War was the taking away of Helen, the wife of King Menelaus of Sparta now part of Greece by Paris of Troy. Despite this though, Andromache would plead with Hector on occasion not to leave the safety of Troy to enter the battles raging outside the city war. Achilles also meets his mother , who warns him that if he remains he will live a long happy life but will not be remembered. Diomedes realizes that his grandfather Oeneus hosted Bellerophon, and so Diomedes and Glaucus must also be friends.
Paris who was the prince of troy took Helen from theKing of Sparta. Now I haven't said much about it up to this point, but back in the Classical Age the Gods were total cockburglars to everyone. Menelaus considers accepting a ransom in return for the life of Adrestus, a Trojan he has subdued, but Agamemnon persuades him to kill the man outright. Achilles, and wanting to avenge the death of his friend Patroclus, returns to the war and kills Hector. Are you too cowardly to stand up to the brave man whom you wronged? I hope this answers your question.
This is the way that true badasses would settle this shit. In contrast with the glorious tragedy of the human conflict, the conflict between the gods has the feel of a dysfunctional family feud. After the fall of Troy, Astyanax was hurled from the battlements of the city by either Odysseus or the Greek warrior—and son of Achilles—Neoptolemus. Here is the location, the action which occurs therein, the four principal characters, and even their personalities…. The Trojans didn't know that so they received the gift and thought that the war was over, but at night the Spartan warriors went out the horse, opened the doors and the Spartan armies with their allies fall over Troy.
Of course later in the movie Hector is killed by Archilles while Archilles is enraged with the death of his cousin Patroclus who was killed by Hector. Although Hector thought that Patroclus was Archilles. While Achilles cried into his beer, his men did battle with Hector, and he crushed their balls up and down the coast. The king of Thessaly summons Boagrius, while Agamemnon summons. How much does a war define oneself? Achilles returns to his tent and Briseis, upon seeing him, bursts into tears for her cousin. Under Priam, Troy prospered, and his family line seemed secured, for Priam was blessed with a large number of children by many different wives, with some saying that Priam had 68 sons and 18 daughters. They feared that if Astyanax was allowed to live, he would come back with vengeance to rebuild Troy and avenge his father.
Prince Hector was the heir to the throne of Troy. Later that night, Briseis sneaks into Achilles' quarters to kill him; instead, she falls for him and they become lovers. However, when he saw and while he was ready to fight him, he suddenly was overcome with fear and started running. Achilles died before his father. This culminated in the sack off Troy.
