His sisters were Selene (the Moon) and Eos (Dawn). Hesiod informs us in his Theogony that with Perseis, daughter of Ocean, he had two children, Circe and king Aietes, who ruled at Kolchis.Later, Apollodorus adds Pasiphae too. Helios is also the father of Phaethon, whose mother was Clymene. When the youngster discovered that his father was the Sun he went to him in the east and asked for a gift. Helios offered him anything he wished, and Phaethon asked if he could ride his fathers blazing chariot across the sky. Helios consented, but the favour turned into a tragedy when Phaethon proved unable to control Helios wild horses, and when he spun out of control, Zeus was obliged to strike down Phaethon with a thunderbolt lest he set the whole world on fire.
