Andromache is an Athenian tragedy by Euripides. It tells the story of Andromache's life as a slave, and her conflict with her master's new wife, Hermione, years after the events of the Trojan War. Previously, Achilles had killed Andromache's husband Hector, and the conquering Greeks threw her young son Astyanax to his death from the Trojan walls. After years have passed, Andromache has a child with Pyrrhus, but his new wife Hermione, deeply jealous of this bond, seeks her revenge.
