Memnon was an Ethiopian king and son of Tithonus and Eos. At the Trojan War, he brought an army to Troy’s defense and was killed by Achilles in retribution for killing Antilochus. After Memnon’s death, Zeus was moved by Eos’ tears and granted him immortality.

Summoned by King Priam, Memnon, the King of the Ethiopians and son of Tithonus and the goddess Eos, leads his armies from the Ethiopia conquering all in his path. When he arrives, Memnon fills the gap left by the now dead Hector. Memnon kills many Achaeans, but when Nestor asks Achilles to return the armor of his dead son, Achilles and Memnon face each other in single combat.

Though Achilles kills him in retribution for killing Antilochus it is important to note Memnon manages to injure the Achaean champion, no small feat indeed. After Memnon’s death, Zeus was moved by Eos’ tears and granted him immortality.
