Themiste

In Greek mythology, Themiste (Ancient Greek: Θεμίστη) was a Trojan princess and daughter of King Ilus of Troad[1] and possibly, Eurydice or Leucippe.[2] She was the (half) sister of Laomedon, Tithonius and Telecleia.[3] Themiste was married off by Ilus to her cousin Capys, son of Assaracus and Hieromneme. With him she became the mother of Anchises and possibly, Acoetes.[4] The former son would later become the father of the famous Aeneas while the later one, became the father of the priest Laocoon.
