Many heroes lived before Agamemnon, but they are all unmourned, and consigned to oblivion, because they had no bard to sing their praises.
— Horace

Agamemnon is the King of Mycenae in Greek mythology, being a primary character in The Iliad and several Greek dramas.

Agamemnon's family history was tarnished with violence, betrayal, and adultery, as a result of a curse placed upon his ancestors. His childhood was affected by this curse as well, but Agamemnon and his brother Menelaus survived the turmoils and became kings of Mycenae and Sparta respectively. Agamemnon was a proficient leader, and he quickly became one of the most powerful men in Greece.

When Paris of Troy eloped with Menelaus's wife Helen, many of the kings and princes of Greece were called to honor an oath they had made, and gathered their armies to siege Troy and recover Helen. Agamemnon was chosen as commander-in-chief of the allied Greek forces, and the leader of renowned heroes like Achilles and Diomedes. For the next ten years, Agamemnon and his army waged a bloody war against the Trojan defenders. In the tenth year, Troy finally fell through the schemes of Odysseus, Helen was recovered, and the Greeks set sail for home.

Unfortunately for Agamemnon, his wife Clytemnestra had been unfaithful to him while he was away at Troy, and Agamemnon was murdered by Clytemnestra and her lover. Agamemnon's son Orestes would return to Mycenae shortly afterward and avenge his death.

Battle vs. Sun Tzu (by KevlarNinja)

Near his tent in Ancient China, Agamemnon is preparing for to address his troops before battle. Just as he puts on his helmet, a flameing arrow lands on the dry grass, setting his tent on fire! Agamemnon picks up his weapons and runs away from the flames. Up ahead, he sees Sun Tzu, leader of the enemy army. Sun Tzu fires a round from his crossbow, which bounces off Agamenon's Hoplon, denting it. Agamemnon holds up his bow and fires an arrow at Sun Tzu, which snaps when it hits Sun Tzu's helmet. The two leaders charge at each other. Agamemnon tries to stab with his Dory, but Sun Tzu leaps out of the way. He pulls out his Dagger axe and stabs Agamemnon in the back of the leg. Agamemnon yells out in pain and then pulls out his Xiphos. He scrapes Sun Tzu on the arm, who proceeds to pull out his Jian. Agamemnon tries to stab Sun Tzu, but he keeps dodgeing the sword. Sun Tzu slashes Agamemnon on the arm. Agamemnon knocks down Sun Tzu with his Hoplon and then stabs him in the neck. Agamemnon raises his bloodly sword in the air and roars in victory. He then limps to the battle field, sure he is going to beat the now-leaderless army.

Winner: Agamemnon
