From Greek Mythology: The wife of Agamemnon who, with the assistance of her lover Aegisthus, murdered him on his return from the Trojan War and was later murdered by her son Orestes.

At the end of the ten-year Trojan war, Agamemnon returned to Mycenae where his kinsman, Aegisthus (who had previously murdered Agamemnon's father) invited him to a banquet where Agamemnon was treacherously slain. Princess Cassandra of Troy, who had been brought back by Agamemnon as a war trophy, was also put to death by Clytemnestra.
