However, Oedipus did not die, instead he was found and adopted by the king and queen of Corinth. Later in his life, he is told that the king of Corinth is not his real father and escapes to Thebes. On his way, he met a traveler. They got into a fight and Oedipus killed him. When he reaches Thebes, he meets a beutiful widow, (who is the queen) and marries her. They are happy together and have four kids. However, this happiness is broken when Odeipus finds out that the traveler he killed was his real father, Laius, and he married his mother, Jocasta.
