Hector | Greek Hero

Hector Greek Mythology

Heitor (Classical Greek: Ἕκτωρ; Romaniz.: Hektōr) was, in Greek mythology, a prince of Troy and one of the greatest warriors in the Trojan War, supplanted only by Achilles. He was the son of Priam and Hecuba and the brother of Paris.

With Andromache, he was the father of Astiranax. Because he was head of the Trojan troops in the war, he was regarded as de facto king of the city, while his father was only de jure.
