In Greek Mythology, King Atreus was king of Mycenae, and the first king of the Atreids Dynasty. It is traditionally believed that he reigned around 1250 BCE.

Atreus’ son Agamemnon is believed to have been not only king of Mycenae, but of all of the Archaean Greeks, and leader of their expedition to Troy to recapture Helen.
