Back in Ancient Greece – The Queen of Sparta was impregnated by her husband (The King) and “seduced” by Zeus ( in the form of a swan) in the same evening. The night resulted in 4 offspring: mortals – Clytemestra and her brother Castor, and immortals – Helen and Polydeuces. Clytemnestra went on to marry Agamemnon, ruler of Argos and influence his subsequent death.
