King of Troy before Priam, he had enlisted the help of the gods Apollo and Poseidon in building the wall around the city, but when it was finished he refused to provide the reward promised. Angry at this, Poseidon sent a great flood to devastate the land, and also a sea monster, to get rid of which Laomedon was told he must sacrifice his daughter Hesione. Hercules, however, slew the beast and rescued Hesione. The king, however, reneged again on a promise, this time that of offering Hesione's hand to Hercules. For this he was slain by the hero, along with all of his family, except Podarkes, who took over the rule of the city, changing his name to Priam.
