Lacedaemon (mythical King of Laconia)

Lacedaemon (/læsˈdmən/; Greek: Λακεδαίμων) was mythical king of Laconia[1] and son of the Pleaid Taygete and Zeus in Classical Greek mythology. He was a father of King Amyclas of Sparta and Queen Eurydice of Argos, with Princess Sparta, the daughter of King Eurotas.[2] Taygete has an association with Artemis in earlier mythology.[3]

Eurotas bequeathed the kingdom to Lacedaemon, who then renamed the state after his wife,[1] Sparta, who was also his niece.[4]

According to Pseudo-Plutarch,[5] Taygete was the wife of Lacedaemon. Their son was named Himerus.
