ELECTRA (2)

Greek Ancestral Goddess

Pleiad mother of the first king of Troy

One of the Pleiades, 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.
