In Greek mythology, Andromache was the wife of Hector and daughter of Eetion, sister to Podes.

During the Trojan War, Hector was killed by Achilles. Their infant son Astyanax was killed by Achilles' son Neoptolemus. Neoptolemus took her as a concubine and Hector's brother, Helenus, as a slave.

With Hector, Andromache had a son named Astyanax. With Neoptolemus, she mothered Molossus and Olympias.

When Neoptolemus died, Andromache married Helenus, brother of Hector, and became Queen of Epirus.
