Jason: Definition and Much More from Answers.com (2962 words)
Jason was the heir to a kingdom in Greece, but his cousin seized the throne.
Pelias took that advice and sent Jason to retrieve the Golden Fleece as he thought it an impossible mission for this young lad that stood before him (Jason was supposed to have been in his late teens or early twenties at the time).
Jason fathered twins with the queen, and many other Argonauts fathered children with the other women, thereby reintroducing a male population to the island (the offspring were male).
