Jocasta, is the Queen of Thebes, who married Oedipus, her own son. She was the wife of Laius and Oedipus her son by Laius. Mother (by Laius) of Oedipus, and mother (by Oedipus) of Antigone, Eteocles, Polynices and Ismene.

Her husband, King Laius of Thebes, consulted an oracle when she was pregnant with her first child, Oedipus. The oracle told Laius that the child was destined to kill his father and marry his own mother. Laius had the baby left on a mountain to die after piercing his ankle. He was found by a shepherd and given to King Polybus and Queen Merope of Corinth.

Later, Oedipus killed Laius, not knowing who he was, and married Jocasta, not knowing who she was. Jocasta had a brooch that she inherited that allowed her to retain her youth, so she was able remain young and beautiful.

When this was discovered, not able to bear the truth, Jocasta committed suicide by hanging herself and Oedipus stabbed out his own eyes with Jocasta’s brooch.

Jocasta had a total of five children. The first, Oedipus, with her first husband, Laius. The others she had with her son/husband, Oedipus. They had two sons, Eteocles and Polynices, and two daughters, Antigone and Ismene.
