Summarising the myth
Oedipus had four children from his marriage to his mother Jokasta, two daughters, Antigone and Ismene, and two sons Eteokles and Polyneikes. The two sons quarrelled over the succession to the Theban throne. As a result Polyneikes left Thebes and went to Argos. There he married the king's daughter and raised an army with which he marched against Thebes, which was ruled by Eteokles, with the intention of conquering the city and installing himself on the throne. Thebes was in grave danger of being conquered and destroyed, but in the end the attack was repulsed and the city saved. Eteokles and Polyneikes killed each other and on their death their uncle Kreon inherited the throne.
