In Greek mythology, Admetus was the king of Pherae in the region of Thessaly, son of Pheres. He participated in the Argonautic Expedition. He was a fair and hospitable king; when Apollo was forced to serve under a mortal because of killing Delphyne, he chose to serve as Admetus’ herdsman. The god later helped him win over Alcestis, princess of Iolcus, daughter of Pelias. Alcestis is a particularly interesting play by Euripides in that it seems to foreshadow New Comedy more than resembling either a traditional tragedy or an old comedy. The essential plot, that.   Admetus and Alcestis lived together happily for a long time, and all the people in their little kingdom loved and blessed them. But at last Admetus fell sick, and, as he grew worse and worse every day, all hope that he would ever get well was lost.

Alcestis is an Athenian tragedy by the ancient Greek playwright Euripides. It was first produced at the City Dionysia festival in BCE. Euripides presented it as the final part of a tetralogy of unconnected plays in the competition of tragedies, for which he won second prize. Admetus Admetus (ad-MEE-tus), of Pherae, the king of e of his fair and friendly treatment of Apollo, placed at Admetus’ mercy for punishment by Zeus, Admetus has been allowed to. Alcestis, the king's wife, agrees to die in place of her husband, and so she dies, but not before she tells Admetus to never marry again. As a result, Admetus tells her that he will never marry again; in fact, he goes an extra step and agrees to never party again like he was used to doing/5.
