Hector


The son of the King of Troy, Hector led the defense of city in the Trojan War. Though the Trojans eventually lost, Hector has been venerated for his courage and nobility. As the story is told in Homer's Iliad, the outcome of the Trojan War was largely in the hands of the Gods. Near the end of the story, Hector has to fight Achilles, the greatest warrior of the Greeks. Hector first flees, running around the city three times before overcoming his fear and turning to fight. As the duel progresses, Hector realizes that the Gods have favored Achilles, yet, though he knows he is about to die, Hector fights valiantly anyway.
