One night, Queen Hecuba had a very bad dream. She dreamed about giving birth to a torch
Queen Hecuba told King Priam, her husband, the horrible dream she had.
Worried, King Priam ran to the Prophets.
The Prophets told the king, that they needed to kill the baby for it would destroy Troy, and that the dream was a bad omen.
King Priam knew he had to obey the prophets, but he couldn't come to kill his own son. He told his chief herdsman Agelaos to do the job for him, and cut his tongue, then bring it back to him to prove he did the job.
when Hecuba had her baby boy, his name was Paris. he was healthy, and already very handsome. Still, she handed the baby over to Agelaos.
