The Héraclides (in Greek old Ἡρακλεῖδαι / Hêrakleĩdai ) is the sixty wire of Héraclès, by extension its descendants which conquer the Peloponnese, to the restricted direction, the wire of Hyllos, wire of the hero and Déjanire.
Héraclès had been made promise the throne of Argos, Sparte and Pylos by Zeus, but Héra, which hates it, supports Eurysthée, king of Mycènes, which usurps the throne which returns to him. Its sons are driven out by this last with Athens, then in Thessalie, mythical cradle of the Doriens, where king Ægimios, hero mythical of the latter, that Héraclès helped formerly, adopts it. According to the oracle of Delphes, Héraclides can regain their kingdom only with the third generation. The invasion of the Doriens is thus presented like the “return of Héraclides”.
Several Greek chalk-linings asserted an ascent héraclide. Thus, the kings of Lydie claimed to go down from a son of the hero and Omphale. The Kings de Sparte also said them to go down from Héraclides - better, the Spartans as a whole claimed there. In the festival Spartan of the Karneia was thus walked in procession a raft, symbol of the passage by Héraclides of the Isthme of Corinth. Without forgetting the " reines" of Naples and the Sibyl S, downward according to Hesiode of Héraklès and Omphale.
