Hécube , girl of Dymas or Cissée, king of Thrace, sister of Théano and marries Priam, had said Homère, fifty wire. She had the pain to almost see them all perishing during the seat or after the ruin of Troy. She avoided itself death to only become the slave of the winner. One sought it a long time without finding it; but finally, Ulysses surprised it among the tombs of his/her children, and made its slave of it.
Before leaving, it swallowed ashes of Hector to withdraw them from its enemies, and saw perishing Astyanax, its grandson, of which it still had to lead the funeral. According to some poets, she saw also immoler her daughter Polyxène on the tomb of Achille.
Led at Polymnestor, the king de Thrace, to whom Priam had entrusted Polydore, youngest of its sons, with large treasures, it finds the body of her unhappy son on the shore, is introduced into the palate of the murderer, and attracts it in the middle of the Trojan women, who burst the eyes with their needles to him, while itself keep silent two children of the king. The furious guards and people continue the Trojan ones with stone blows. Hécube bites rage those which one launches to him, and, metamorphosed in bitch, it fills Thrace with howls which touch compassion not only the Greeks, but Héra itself, cruelest enemy of Troyens.
