Jason and the golden fleece. Christian Bethany Ryan Jake A. John . King named Athamas got tired of his wife and married another princess New princess was planning to kill son of old queen (Phrixus) so her son would inherit the kingdom
The king told Jason he would give him the fleece if he passed the trial
These men include:
With her God-like powers, Medea helped save the Argonauts on many occasions.
Medea was the driving force in helping the Argonauts escape with the Golden Fleece, without her, it’s most likely that they never would have gotten out alive.
Medea, like the archetype of supernatural intervention, used her unworldly powers to get her and her husbands way and use it as a sort of power over people.
Medea, Jason’s love interest
Medea, at first, seemed like a nice, lovable character
Helps Jason obtain the golden fleece and escape
After Jason completed his quest, Medea kills their children and leaves Jason.
From this, we learn that the Greeks, still during this time, viewed women as lesser than men and crazy.
A major theme in the story of Jason and the Golden Fleece would be that history repeats itself. This prevalent because at the beginning of the story, an unfaithful wife attempts to kill two children of the king, and at the end of the story, Medea ends up killing both the children. In both instances, the king becomes unfaithful towards his wife. Afterword's, the wife attempts to kill the two children.
Another common theme in this story would be manipulation and women being mischievous. Throughout the story, Medea is able to manipulate countless people in order to get her and Jason’s way. One example of this was manipulating her brother into thinking she was taking his side, when in reality, she did it to kill him and make a clean escape with the fleece.
