Transcript of Ancient Greek Mythology: Clothos, Lachesis and Atropos

Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos are sisters who are goddesses also known as "The Fates," they decide the fate of men. Each Fate is encharged of a certain job whether it is measuring the thread of life, spinning the spindle of life or cutting the thread of life.
Atropos is the daughter of Zeus and Themis. She is the oldest of the three sister. She was encharged of supervising fate rather than controlling it, she also cut the "Thread of life" in other words whenever she would "cut the thread" it ended the life of a specific person. People saw her as an old crone. She was the most feared sister.
She is the Youngest of the three sisters. She "spins the thread of life" in older words she decides if a mortal should be saved or put to death. She was never married.

The fates had minor roles in myths. "In one of the stories about Meleager (a prince of Calydon, near Corinth), they informed his mother, Althea, that the boy would die when a piece of wood then burning inher hearth was totally consumed. Thus, Althea removed the wood, doused it with water, and stored it in a place where it was safe from fire. And in the myth of Apollo and Admetus (king of Pherae, in Thessaly), Apollo got the Fates drunk to trick them into allowing Admetus to live beyond a normal human life span (as long as he could find someone willing to die in his place.)"
