Nemesis was known to be the daughter of Night though some call her the daughter of Erebus or Oceanus. She had two sets of twins Helen of Troy and Clytemnestra, and the Dioscuri and Polydeukes. Nemesis was the goddess of indignation against, and retribution for, evil deeds and undeserved good fortune. This goddess was thought to be the creator of an equilibrium for the people... she measures out happiness and unhappiness. He who is blessed with too many or too frequent gifts of good fortune, is paid a visit from her with losses and sufferings.
