Agamemnon Consideration Paper
There are some cycles that run in families that have a likelihood of affecting generations. When one reflects on the history of some areas, it is possible to find similarities in cultures, Kingship, and family matters that dictate the people’s destiny. There are some acts that are likely to attract curses upon families and a region at large depending on the influence of the person under such curse. The lifting of such curses happens only when a person under that linage offers a sacrifice of atonement that is held jointly between humans and gods. This was the case in Agamemnon generation.

While Agamemnon was gone, his wife sought solace in Aegisthus who becomes not only her ally, but also future husband. Before the return, they have already laid down a plan to eliminate Agamemnon and spend their future together. Immediately after their arrival, Aegisthus and the queen throw a net over Agamemnon and kill him as he takes a bath. Cassandra was also killed as she walks in on them during the killing. The main reason that cause the murder was to avenge for the killing of Iphigenia, engaging in war for the sake of Helen, and jealous over Cassandra. Aegisthus and Clytemnestra then took over the kingdom for some time. However, Agamemnon son late killed them.
