There was once a family in Greek Mythology that was considered the most tragic of all time. From it's beginnings with the disturbing Tantalus to the murder of Agamemnon and later Clytemnestra, this family is ten different flavors of messed up. However, what is this curse of Atreus that I spoke of? Well it's the story of the two sons of Pelops and how their antics furthered the curse that began with Tantalus. As a side note, there was a little tidbit that I forgot to mention in my last entry, remember Myrtilus? Well I forgot to tell you guys that before he died at the hands of Pelops, he cursed him and his line, so that probably added on to the chance of misfortune in this family caused by that wacky Tantalus.
Wow this family tree is just filled with more tragedy than a emo's social life
