This baby is a blessing to us, we will name him Oedipus, and raise him as our own child.
I must run away from my parents (the king and queen of Corinth) I am cursed.
Queen Jocasta and King Laios of the City Of Thebes has a curse in their family, and when they had a son, he was cured. Said that if he were to grow up he would kill his father. and marry his mother.
So Queen Jocasta and King Laios payed a Shepard to take the baby and leave it to die, but the Shepard felt bad and gave it to another Shepard, that Shepard gave the baby to his king and queen. since they could not have kids.
You can only save the City of Thebes if you solve my riddle !
I know the answer to your riddle, it is.... A Man
The King and Queen of Corinth named the baby Oedipus and raised him as their own. When Oedipus got older he found out of the curse, he ran away from his home thinking that the King and Queen of Corinth were his actual parents.
While on the road he came in contact with a man, there was some conflicts and they fought. Oedipus killed him.
Later Oedipus came to the City Of Thebes who was cursed by a Sphinx, in order to get rid of it someone must solve the sphinx's riddle. Oedipus solved it and saved the city. Since their king had been recently killed, He was rewarded by being the king of the city and by marrying the widow Queen Jocasta.
AT LAST THE CITY IS FREE
They lived happily for years, and had 4 children. But soon they came to find out that Oedipus was Queen Jocasta and King Laios' biological son. He had killed his father, and married his mother. When they found out, it was tragic. Queen Jocasta killed herself and Oedipus punished himself by taking his eyes out.
This is very tragic. this curse ruined our family.
