Who was the ancient king that sacrificed his daughter to the gods?
In Greek mythology, Iphigenia was a daughter of King Agamemnon and Queen Clytemnestra, and thus a princess of Argos. Agamemnon offends the goddess Artemis by killing her deer. Artemis retaliates by interfering with the wind so that Agamemnon can't sail. A seer tells Agamemnon that he must sacrifice his daughter.
