Peleus was the father of Achilleus, the main hero of Homer's Iliad. He was king over the Myrmidons in Phthia. In the Cypria, the start of the Epic Cycle that includes Homer's two narratives, Peleus was brought to marriage with Thetis the sea-nymph by Zeus. He was also a famed warrior and an Argonauts.
