Priam was the King of Troy during the Trojan War. He had several wives and concubines with which he fathered 50 sons and numerous daughters. Hector was his oldest son and heir to the throne. He died during the siege of Troy, as did Paris (also known as Alexander), who was the reason for the Trojan War. The prophet Cassandra was one of Priam’s daughters. Priam died during the sack of Troy by Achilles’ son.
