In Greek mythology, Leda was a beautiful queen who was either seduced or raped (depending on the version) by Zeus, who was disguised as a swan. The same night she slept with her husband, Tyndarius and she laid two eggs. Out of one hatched Helen of Troy and her sister Clytemnestra, and out of the other hatched the twins Castor and Pollux. Two were the children of Zeus and the other two were the children of Tyndarius (this also varies depending on the version).
