In Greek mythology, Laomedon was a king of Troy. He was the son of Ilus. Laomedon was the father of King Priam, and Astyoche, Lampus, Hicetaon, Clytius, Cilla, Proclia, Aethilla, Medesicaste, Clytodora and Hesione. The king owned a team of divine horses. Zeus gave these horses to Tros (Laomedon's grandfather) as payment after Zeus kidnapped Tros' son, Ganymede.
