Sisyphus was a son of Aeolus, the god of the winds.
He was the founder and king of Corinth, and had two brothers; Athamas, a king of Boeotia, and Critheus, the founder of Iolkos. Sisyphus was also the grandfather of Bellerophon, the owner of the magical winged horse Pegasus.
Sisyphus was famous for his wealth, his cleverness and his cunning, but he used his wealth to cause harm and offence to the gods.
