The main character from the greek tragedy "Oedipus Rex". He accidentally married and then knocked up his mother.

finished reading Oedipus the King Friday
I find the Bible to be a wonderful example of the literary genre known as historical fiction.
Also, It`s interesting to note that while the psychological complex is named for Oedipus, the mythological character didn`t actually suffer from it. He had no idea he was killing his father and marrying his mother until after it happened.
yes the bible....what a great source of true information.

Probably the only one too.
And yet you`re not superior because this is grade 11 greek mythology...
He married his mother
