TitleThe word "Astyanax" comes from the Greek for "Prince of the City", and was originally applied to the Trojan prince Scamandrius, son of Hector and Andromache. Various accounts have him thrown to his death in infancy from the battlements of Troy by Odysseus or Neoptolemus, in an effort to stem the Trojan royal line.
