Sparta history dated back from a long time ago. It said that Sparta's history relied on a few legends. This had been founded by Lacedaemon, the son of Zeus and Taygete, who married Sparta, the daughter of Eurotas.
Atlas was the son of the Titan Iapetus & Clymene, He married Pleione who bore the seven sea deities with the name Pleiades Nymphs with the name "Hesperides", also known as the "Daughters of Evening".Unlike his brothers he fought with the other Titans supporting Cronus against Zeus. Due to Cronus's advance age Atlas lead the Titan's in battle. As a result he was singled out by Zeus for a special punishment and made to hold up the world on his back.
