What was ATALANTAs story?When Atalanta was born, her father wasnt pleased he had a baby girl, so he left her in the woods to die.

A helpful she-bear found her, nursed her, and kept her warm. Then, caring hunters found her and took her in. She later grew up to be the opposite of what most women couldnt a fierce, fearless female.

After many adventures and avoiding love for several years, her future husband tricked her into marriage (with the help of the goddess Aphrodite). With this, Atalanta had two things happen to her for the first time:She lost to a man (and had to marry him)She became a mother (made her more womanly)

What were ATALANTAs quests along her journey?A wild boar was destroying the country of Calydon, and the King called for the bravest men to kill it. After two men failed in their attempts and died, Atalanta pierced the boar so that Mel eager could put the animal down.

When Atalanta was in the woods alone,two Centaurs - stronger than mortals, rushed at her. She fearlessly killed them both with two arrows.

At an event to honor the life of Elias, Atalanta defeated the hero Peleus, also known as the father of Achilles., in a wrestling match.
