Myth of Aquiles

Post  isaacbueno.4 on Sun Nov 09, 2014 11:48 am

Aquiles was the son of a marine nymph called Tetis and his father king Peleo who was a mortal. His mother Tetis tried to make Aquiles in mortal, by dipping his whole body in the river Estigia, and giving him food which was from Olympia where she got it for making him strong. The only place which he didn’t touch the water was in the heel, because it was where his mother was holding him. Aquiles was going to war, but her mother Tetis knew he was in danger, because he could die in war. So she send him to the king Licomedes in the island of Scyros looking like a female during a few days, but that didn’t let him have children with Deidamiata the daughter of the island. One day one of his friends Patroclo asked for his armor to wear in battle, which he let him. During the war Hector another friend of Aquiles wanted to see if it was really which he stabbed him, but really it was Patroclo by that Aquiles was so angry at him. Another thing was that he won the battle of Athena and Trojan War. There were Gods who hated him which he was hurt by an arrow in his heel shot from the bow of Paris a God, holding by Apollo who hated him so much. From that he died. Very Happy
