 Athamas 1, Greek Mythology Link.
However, before he was able to satisfy the public demands, his wife Nephele 2 put her son Phrixus 1 along with her daughter Helle on the back of the Ram with the Golden Fleece, which she had received from Hermes, and flying on it they escaped.
Helle slipped into the sea, which was called Hellespont after her, and was drowned; her tomb was said to be in the Chersonesus, which is the Thracian peninsula separated from Asia Minor by the Dardanelles.
On hearing this report, Cretheus 1 persuaded his brother Athamas 1 to put Phrixus 1 to death, and, they say, it was then that Nephele 2 intervened to save her son, sending him away on the back of the Ram with the Golden Fleece, along with his sister Helle.

 NEPHELE : The deity from Greek Mythology
It went well at the start but after two children NEPHELE got the miseries again and kept turning into a drizzling cloud.
Not too good a choice as ZEUS was having an affair with her sister SEMELE, and ATHAMAS had to let him have a spare key.
After telling ATHAMAS in no uncertain terms how stupid he was, she whisked NEPHELE back to Olympus to work in the stables - filling the water trough with tears.
