Mythic, worshipped in ancient Greece, dates vary, beginning circa 1600 B.C.E.
Hecuba was the queen of Troy, wife of King Priam. She had several children, including Cassandra and Troilius, an important figure in the stories of the Trojan War who was fathered by the god Apollo. After Troy fell, Hecuba was enslaved by the Achaeans, another Greek tribe. She was the subject of two plays by Euripides (circa 480–406 B.C.E.): The Trojan Women and Hecuba.
