  • A long time ago........ Tantalus (who was the son of Zues) was very honored by the Gods.
  • One day the Gods were invited to his palace to dine with him. When they got there the Gods Condecended to dine with him and that made him very angry. So in return he killed his only son Pelops, had him boiled in a cauldrn, and served to the Gods. The Olympians knew what he had done and said he had to be punished.
  • So while Tantalus was tortured for the rest of his life, Pelops was brought back to life by the Gods and had a very successful life. He was happily married to Princess Hippodamia.
  • But nobody suffered like his sister Niobe did. She was happily married to Amphion, who was also a son of Zues and an incomparable musician. Niobe and Amphion ruled a continent until one day Niobe showed her mad arrogance, just like Tantalus.
  • She was rich and born nobly and powerful. She had seven of the most handsome sons and seven of the most fairest daughters. She thoughtshe could not only decieve the Gods just as her father did, but also openly defy them. She wanted the people of Thebes to Worship her. She thought that people should worship her and not Leto becyase she had seven sons and seven daughters while Leto only had two sons, Apollo and Artemis. She thought she should be queen. Artemis and his huntresses killed all of her sons and daughters. Niobe saw them die and felt anguished too great for expression. Niobe was turned to stone which was wet night and day with tears.
  • Pelops had two sons who were named Artreus and Thyestes. Theyestes fell in love with his brothers wife and she was unfaithful to her marraige. Atreus found out and said that his brother would pay. So Artreus killed both of his brothers little sons and made him eat them. When he found out that he had ate his children he cried out a great cry. Atreus was king and Thyestes had no power but Artreus's children and their children suffered.
