She was the wife of Theseus, but she fell in love with her husband's son, Hippolytus. According to a version of the story, Hippolytus had mocked Aphrodite by telling her to be a virginal devotee of Artemis; so, Aphrodite made Phaedra fall for him, but he rejected her love. Bitter, Phaedra lied to her husband saying that Hippolytus raped her. Theseus cursed his son; so, a bit later, Hippolytus' chariot horses were scared by a sea monster and dragged him to death. In another version, Phaedra lied to Theseus, who killed Hippolytus; out of guilt, Phaedra committed suicide.
