penelope had a pretty tough break in greek mythology. her beloved husband left to fight in troy just after their son telemachus was born. after that was over, odysseus was punished by poseiden to wander the seas. while he was busy trying to find his way home, it was left to penelope to run their kingdom in ithaca. she did a damn good job and managed to fend off suitors and would usurpers. penelope never gave up hope that odysseus would return and trust, when he did…he and penelope kicked some ass. give it up for penelope. she’s awesome.
