Hector Edit

was the eldest son of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy. He was the leader of the Trojan contingent in the Trojan War, his father being to old to lead personally. He was married to Andromache and had a young son, Astyanax (also known as Scamandrius). who was killed during the sack of Troy. Edit

Hector was fated to die by the hand of Achilles, who's own fate rested on his decision to kill Hector and thus take revenge for Patroclus's death at Hector's hands.
