in Greek mythology, Phaedra was the daughter of King Minos and the wife of Theseus. She later falls in love with her stepson, who, depending on which version you read, could also be her nephew. Drama ensues and she possibly kills herself, depending on the version. The story has been dramatized by countless authors over the past few thousand years. Phaedra is derived from the Greek phaidros meaning "bright."
