Aethra is the daughter Pittheus, the queen
of Troezen, and the wife of Egeus. She gave birth to Theseus. King Aegeus of Athens
came to Troezen after he had taken a journey to Delphi to find out why he did not have any children, and was invited to stay
with king Pittheus. Pittheus got Aegeus drunk, and then Aegeus went to Aeropes chamber and slept with her.
