Atalanta's story

Atalanta is a girl who was sent to die by her parents when she was a baby. Atalanta was raised by a hunter that found her. When she was older she entered many competitions but, she was best at the footrace! The king (her father) ordered her to come to the palace at once. Then, they found out that they are father and daughter. Her father then ordered her to wed. Atalanta agreed to only wed if the man beat her in a foot race. If they failed they would die. Many men tried but, many men failed. Then one man came and used these three golden apples that afrediti gave to him soon Atalanta was to distracted by the pure gold that she lost the race. So they ended up getting married then they had a kid. Rea got mad thinking Atalanta only cares about hunting, killing ,and running so she turned her and her husband into lions.

family tree

Atalanta's mother is queen Clymene. Her father is king Iosis.

Differences and Simalarities

I think some similarities about them are they both love to hunt, adventure,they both use a bow and arrow, they both don't want to marry someone, and they both have royal parents. The differences are that marideth's family loves her, Atalanta's doesn't, Marideth has three brothers, Atalanta has no siblings, Atalanta loves running, Marideth loves archery.
