King Laios and Queen Jocasta learn from the prophecy that their son Oedipus will kill his father & marry his mother .
Oedipus defeats the sphinx that was messing with the city of Thebes and the offered him the thrown and a widowed wife. They had 4 children together.
People,animals,and crops started to die and Oedipus found out he was the reason why. He found out he was the child in the prophet and gouged his eyes out. Later on Creon took over and sent him to exile where he died.
Oedipus sons Eteocles and Polyneices took turns on the thrown but Eteocles didnt want to give up his thrown and the two boy were at it.
They both gathered an army and killed each other. Creon decided to bury Eteocles body and put him to rest but didnt want to do that for Polyneices.
Now Creon and Oedipus daughter Antigone, are now in a disagreement because he wont bury her brother.
