In Greek mythology, Astyanax (; Ancient Greek: ?st???a? ? Asty?nax, gen.: ?st???a?t??) was the son of Hector, Crown Prince of Troy and Princess Andromache of Cilician Thebe. His birth name was Scamandrius (in Greek S?a???d???? or S???a?d???, after the river Scamander), but the people of Troy nicknamed him Astyanax (i.e. high king, or overlord, of the city), because he was the son of the city's great defender (Iliad VI, 403) and the heir apparent's firstborn son.
