Themisto

In Greek mythology, Themisto was the third and last wife of Athamas. She had one son by him, Schoeneus.

When Athamus returned to his second wife, Ino, Themisto sought revenge by dressing her children in white clothing and Ino's in black. Ino switched their clothes with Themisto knowing and she killed her own children (except, apparently, for Schoeneus).
