Hector of Troy

“In book the book The Iliad, what do we learn about Hector? What kind of man is he? Why does he fight?”

Hector was the prince of Troy and its greatest warrior. He fought for his people because he was the prince and it was his duty to the kingdom. He was a good son, a loving father and a kind husband. Hector was known for his peace making nature and his courage. He disagreed with the war between the Troy and Greek cultures. After avoiding Achilles’ wrath 3 times, Hector finally faced him and asked for a truce. Achilles did not heed Hector’s words and he killed Hector. He then tied Hector’s ankle to his chariot and rode around, dragging Hector’s body in the dirt.
