  Britain.tv Wikipedia - Atreus
In Greek mythology, King Atreus (Greek: Ατρεύς, Atreús) ("fearless") of Mycenae was the son of Pelops and Hippodamia and father of Agamemnon and Menelaus.
Atreus and his twin brother, Thyestes, were exiled by their father for having murdered their step-brother, Chrysippus in their desire for the throne of Olympia.
She gave it to her lover, Thyestes (also Atreus' brother), who then convinced Atreus to agree that whoever had the lamb should be king.

 Atreus, Greek Mythology Link - www.maicar.com
It is now told that Atreus once had vowed to sacrifice to Artemis the finest of his flocks; but when a golden lamb appeared, he forgot everything about his vow and, after choking the lamb, he hid it inside a box.
Atreus agreed to this, believing he still had the golden lamb locked and safe, but instead it was Thyestes 1 who produced the lamb, becoming thereby king of Mycenae.
After this bizarre family reunion, Aegisthus, bore the bloody sword to Atreus as an evidence of Thyestes 1's death; and later, while Atreus was sacrificing on the shore, Aegisthus slew him and restored his father to the throne, forcing Agamemnon and Menelaus to go into exile to the court of King Polyphides 1 of Sicyon.

 The House of Atreus (Background Note)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
The family of Atreus (father of Agamemnon and Menelaus) traces its origins back to Tantalus, king of Sipylos, a son of Zeus (famous for his eternal punishment in Hades, as described in the Odyssey, where he is always thirsty but can never drink, hence the origin of the word tantalizing).
Atreus and Thyestes quarrelled (in some versions at the instigation of the god Hermes, father of Myrtilus, the charioteer killed by Pelops).
The story of the House of Atreus, and particularly Orestes' and Electra's revenge for their father's murder, is one of the most popular and enduring of all Greek legends, a favourite among the classical tragedians and still very popular with modern playwrights (e.g., T. Eliot, Eugene O'Neill, Jean Paul Sartre).
