In Greek mythology, Iphigenia was a daughter of King Agamemnon and Queen Clytemnestra, and thus a princess of Mycenae. In the story, Agamemnon offends the goddess Artemis on his way to the Trojan War by accidentally killing one of her sacred deer.

She retaliates by preventing the Greek troops from reaching Troy unless Agamemnon kills his eldest daughter, Iphigenia, at Aulis as a human sacrifice.

In some versions, Iphigenia dies. In the legendary House of Atreus tragedy, Clytemnestra, the mother of Orestes, took Aegisthus as a lover while her husband Agamemnon was away fighting at Troy. When Agamemnon—after having murdered their daughter Iphigenia—returned (with a new concubine Cassandra in tow), Clytemnestra murdered her husband.

The story of the Greek princess Antigone, as told by Sophocles, is one of the more famous Greek tragedies. It is a story of love and sacrifice, of duty and honour, and of oppression and tyranny.

It has strong feminist themes and characters, and most readers will be able to identify with these characters in the current political scenario. According to Aeschylus ’s tragedy Agamemnon, Cassandra was loved by the god Apollo, who promised her the power of prophecy if she would comply with his desires.

Cassandra accepted the proposal, received the gift, and then refused the god her favours. Apollo revenged himself by ordaining that her prophecies should never be believed.
