Andromaque is a tragedy in five acts by the French playwright Jean Racine written in alexandrine verse. Euripides ' play Andromache and the third book of Virgil 's Aeneid were the points of departure for Racine's play. The play takes place in the aftermath of the Trojan War , during which Andromache 's husband Hector , son of Priam , has been slain by Achilles and their young son Astyanax has narrowly escaped a similar fate at the hands of Ulysses , who has unknowingly been tricked into killing another child in his place. Andromache has been taken prisoner in Epirus by Pyrrhus , son of Achilles, who is due to be married to Hermione , the only daughter of the Spartan king Menelaus and Helen of Troy.
