Hecuba, also known as Hecabe, (pronounced HEH-ke-ba; also Hekabê), was the Queen of Troy during the Trojan War, and one of Priam's many wives. By him, she was mother of many children, including Hector, Paris, Helenus, Deiphobus and Cassandra.
She was a survivor of the Sack of Troy, and sailed off with and under Odysseus from Troy. However during the voyage, she cast herself into the sea at the Hellespont.
In one version of her parentage, she was daughter to Dymas of Phrygia and an unknown mother. In another version Cisseus of Thrace and an unknown mother are her parents, making Hecuba sister to Theano, wife of the Trojan lord Antenor.
