Hippocoon

In Greek mythology, Hippocoon was a son of King Oebalus and Queen Gorgophone of Sparta. When their father died, Hippocoon's brother, Tyndareus, became king. Hippocoon overthrew him and took the throne, only to be killed by Heracles, who also killed his son, Lycon and reinstated Tyndareus.
