Cadmus & Harmonia

Cadmus was the mythic Greek hero who slayed a dragon and founded the city of Thebes. He married Harmonia, the daughter of Ares (God of War) and Aphrodite (Goddess of Love). When the lovers reached old age some of the gods took revenge on Cadmus for killing the dragon and condemned him to live out the rest of his days as a snake. Harmonia loved her husband so much that instead of living without him, she asked the gods to turn her into a snake as well so that they might stay together. The gods granted her wish.
