The Danaides were fifty daughters of Danaus that were to marry the fifty sons of Danaus' twin, Aegyptus. Fourty-nine of the Danaides killed their husbands on their wedding night. The fourty-nine daughters are now condemned to carry water in a sieve in Tartarus. The Danaid that didn't kill her husband was named Hypermnestra. Her husband, Lynceus, respected her wish to remain a virgin so she didn't kill him. Lynceus killed Danaus as revenge for the deaths of his brothers.
