In the wake of Oedipus's exile, the cursed sons of his incestuous marriage, Eteocles and Polynices, vow to avoid further bloodshed by ruling Thebes in alternate years. However, when Eteocles refuses to step down after the first year of the arrangement, Polynices raises an army led by seven Argive champions to retake Thebes by force. Fearing the invaders, and feeling the fear of his people, Eteocles vows to fight Polynices man to man for the future of the city. Instead, they kill one another in battle beneath the seventh gate of the city, leading directly to the dilemma of their sister, Antigone, and her ultimate demise
