Hector in Greek mythology is the son of the Kings of Troy and commander of the city's troops. He was the greatest of all Trojan warriors and would only fall before the wrath of Achilles; his death signals the end of The Iliad.

Hector was defined by Homer as the counterpoint of Achilles, a calm hero, lover of peace, yet brave and willing to sacrifice his own life to defend his people. During the Middle Ages the figure of Hector personified the authentic, knightly ideal.
