Phaedra in Wikipedia
In Greek mythology, Phaedra (Phaidra) is the daughter of
Minos, wife of Theseus and the mother of Demophon of Athens
and Acamas. Phaedra's name derives from the Greek word φαιδρός
(phaidros), which meant "bright".
Though married to Theseus, Phaedra fell in love with
Hippolytus, Theseus' son born by either Hippolyta, queen of
the Amazons, or Antiope, her sister. Euripides placed this
story twice on the Athenian stage, of which one version
survives. According to some sources, Hippolytus had spurned
Aphrodite to remain a steadfast and virginal devotee of
Artemis, and Aphrodite made Phaedra fall in love with him as a
punishment. He rejected her. Alternatively, Phaedra's nurse
told Hippolytus of her love, and he swore he would not reveal
her as a source of information. In revenge, Phaedra wrote
Theseus a letter that claimed Hippolytus raped her...
