GREEK MYTHOLOGY

The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece

ELECTRA(2)

Greek Ancestral Goddess

Mother of the first king of Troy

Daughter of ATLAS and Pleione. She was another ZEUS seduction resulting in Dardanus, first King of Troy, and Iasion.

She did try to fight ZEUS off, and hid behind the statue of the Palladium which ATHENA had installed. ZEUS threw it out of Heaven and it landed in Troy. The Trojans kept it as a lucky mascot. Bad choice.

The Romans made her the wife of a Prince Corythus, and for Dardanus Troy became Troad.
