(Greek Mortal) HIPPOTHOON

Also known as HIPPOTHOUN, HIPPOTHOUS, HIPPONOUS, HIPPOPOTAMUS (only joking about the last one! :-)

The son of a Kingfisher who was really Poseidon, and Alope who was the daughter of Poseidon's son.

On top of that he was abandoned and suckled by a she-horse, saw his mother turned into a spring and his grandad/step-brother killed by uncle Theseus. So much complication, and he didn't ask for any of it. Still, at least he became King of Eleusis, eventually.

See Alope.
