About Peleus, King of the Myrmidans

"There is no city so barbarous or so strange in its speech that it does not know the Fame of the hero Peleus …" (Pindar, Isthmian Odes 6.25)."

"Peleus, who was driven fugitive from the island of Aegina, became in time king in Phthia. In his life he both plotted and was plotted against. He was born a mortal, but having married a goddess, his wedding party was, for several reasons, the greatest that has ever been. However, his wife deserted him, and his heirs died before him. Yet Peleus, who is among the few privileged to have heard the song of the MUSES, is now immortal and lives with Thetis in her father's house, or else dwells in the Islands of the Blest."
