Oedipus solved the riddle of the sphinx and saved the city of Thebes.The people were so hapy that they made him king!
Oedipus went to see Tiresias ( a blind prophet that could see what Appolo did) because Apollo had told him to drive out a plauge from the city. He thought perhaps Tiresias could shed some light on the matter. Tiresias told him that he was the one who killed King Laius (he was the murder that he was suposed to drive out!)
Oedipus belives Creon his brother in law is in on some plot against him. Jocasta ( his wife) tries to convince Oedipus that Creon is innocent and that he didn't kill Laius either, it just happend.
Oedipus finds out that the shepard actually gave him to his adopted parents and that his wife is actually his mother. He is shocked and disgusted
Oedipus goes to find his wife and finds her dead because she didn't want to tell him about his real family. He goes insane and is very upset
Oedipus is so ashamed and embarrassed that he married his mom. He decided to poke his eyes out and leave Thebes. He says good bye to his daughters as he will never see them again. Creon takes him out of the city
