Troilus [r]: In Greek mythology, he is a Trojan prince who is the son of King Priam and Queen Hecabe. He is killed in battle by the Greek hero Achilles, and his death was described in Greek tragedy by the Athenian dramatist Sophocles. His actions were also described in the Iliad by the bard Homer who wrote in a metric style known as dactylic hexameter.
