Pelops was the son of Tantalus who was served to the gods at a feast. Fortunately, the gods realized what was happening before eating Pelops, and so were able to re-assemble him. Pelops later married Hippodamia after beating her father in a chariot race. He had two sons: Atreus and Thyestes.

The boy Pelops was a lover of god Poseidon. Curiously, Pelops cursed Laios of Thebes when Laios abduced his own son Chrysippus as lover.
