Who is the real Lady Whistledown identity

Answered By: Gabriel Perez Date: created: Nov 08 2023

Stars Nicola Coughlan and Claudia Jessie recall filming the long-anticipated moment: “We always knew was coming.” “Will they-won’t they” takes on a whole new meaning in Bridgerton ‘s season two finale — this time, not for a romantic love, but one of a beloved friendship.

  • Aside from the longing stares and burning tension of the show’s typical romances (of which there are plenty this season ), it’s the fallout between on-screen BFFs Eloise Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington that has viewers hanging on the edge of their seats for more.
  • And the actresses have been anticipating this moment.

“Julia Quinn, who wrote the book said, ‘This is one of the most important love stories in the whole Bridgerton series and it just happens that it’s a friendship love,'” Nicola Coughlan recalls when speaking to The Hollywood Reporter about a conversation she had on set with the Bridgerton novel series author about how the reveal will impact Penelope and Eloise’s close friendship.

  1. At the end of the season, Eloise (played Claudia Jessie ) discovers Lady Whistledown’s true identity to be none other than her very best friend and closest confidante Penelope (played by Coughlan).
  2. And while the audience has been in on the big secret since the end of season one, Eloise feels the greatest betrayal at the news.

“When I first read it. I was like: Yes!” Jessie says, perhaps, surprising the audience. “Because that’s who you want to find out the most, obviously. That’s the highest stakes — you want to want it to be,” Penelope ( Nicola Coughlan ), aka Lady Whistledown. Courtesy of Netflix Leading up to the big moment, the audience sees Penelope struggle throughout the season to keep her secret persona under wraps, with the likes of the Queen, and even Eloise herself, still searching to uncover Lady Whistledown’s identity.

“Every time we shot the scene, we’d cut, then me and Nicola would have a little hug, and then we’d go back to start again,” Jessie says of filming the intense argument between the two friends. ” was really heart-wrenching to do,” Coughlan adds. “But it was something that we always sort of knew was coming because, you know, you can’t deceive a friend for that long and not expect it to have consequences.” Consequences, indeed.

The scene’s ending sees Eloise telling Penelope that she never wishes to see or speak to her again. As for whether or not the on-screen besties will reunite in the future, Jessie says she’s confident the pair can get through this rough patch. “I think they will,” Jessie says of what may come in seasons three and four,

Who ends up being Lady Whistledown

Answered By: Jesse Morgan Date: created: Mar 27 2023

Lady Whistledown is once again spilling the tea. Dearest gentle reader, a new missive from Lady Whistledown is here! On Saturday, during Netflix’s global fan event, TUDUM, a brief clip of the Bridgerton cast gave us the episode title and opening narration of the first episode of season 3.

  1. The clip first features Luke Newton (Colin) and Claudia Jessie (Eloise) going head-to-head as they attempt to paint portraits of each other.
  2. Newton teases Colin and Penelope’s long-simmering romantic tension, explaining their history together since they met as children and Colin’s inability to see what is right in front of him.

But when the Bridgerton siblings are interrupted by Nicola Coughlan (Penelope), we finally get a glimpse of what is in store for season 3 (and all the Polin fans!). The premiere episode is titled, “Out of the Shadows,” perhaps hinting at Lady Whistledown’s return (or, gasp, Penelope’s reveal as the gossip-monger?).

“Dearest gentle reader, we’ve been apart for far too long,” Coughlan begins, assuming her best Penelope voice (though we must assume Julie Andrews will be returning to read this on screen). “At last, London’s smart set has made its return, and so to, has this author. As the season begins, the question on everyone’s minds is, of course, which newly minted debutante will shine the brightest? The crop this year proves to be rather dazzling indeed.

Unfortunately, not every young lady can attract the light.” The season 2 finale found Penelope isolated from all those she loves, with Eloise discovering her identity as Lady Whistledown — the ultimate betrayal to her friend. And this blow came only moments after Penelope overheard her longtime crush, Colin, mocking her to his friends in the garden. Nicola Coughlan as Penelope Featherington in season 2 of ‘Bridgerton’ | Credit: Liam Daniel/Netflix We watched as Penelope briefly consider setting aside her poison pen, only to pick it back up again in the season’s final moments. “Once she’s lost Eloise and she’s lost Colin, she’s got nothing left and that’s the only power she has in the world,” Coughlan previously told EW,

  • Still, Coughlan reflected that this was all necessary to get the earned happy ending Polin fans deserve.
  • Penelope needs to realize Colin is a fallible human being,” she said.
  • He’s not a god; he’s not an Adonis.
  • If they’re ever going to have any type of relationship, it’s not healthy for her to see him in that way.

She’s got to see him flaws and all, and she currently doesn’t. In the long run, it’s probably a good thing, but it’s not going to be an immediate good thing.” Watch the clip above for more. Bridgerton season 3 is currently in production. Related content: Bridgerton (TV show)

How did Penelope become Lady Whistledown

Answered By: Adrian Ramirez Date: created: Aug 24 2023

It’s no longer a secret who the gossip writer is on ” Bridgerton,” the Netflix hit now in its second season. Revealed to be Penelope Featherington at the end of last season, the youngest daughter, overlooked, of a family besieged by scandal, Lady Whistledown serves as a narrator for the show (well, Julie Andrews doing a voiceover does).

  • Her identity still a mystery to her well-to-do community, Lady Whistledown (Nicola Coughlan) continues to write and print what she knows, or thinks she knows, about the goings-on of her high society.
  • And the whole “ton” continues to react, eating up every issue.
  • But now that the gossip writer has been unmasked to the viewing audience, it remains to be seen what the tension will be with her role.

How does Lady Whistledown do what she does? What’s the history of gossip writing? And should Penelope even risk it? Related: Is Lady Violet the oracle of “Bridgerton”? “Bridgerton” concerns itself with the courting season of its Regency-era characters, including the large family of the Bridgertons, and the Featheringtons, who have a lower status in the “ton”: a family of daughters always dressed in colorful, floral flocks.

Penelope is the youngest Featherington, consistently ignored by her family; Colin (Luke Newton), the Bridgerton she has a crush on, who thinks of her primarily as a good friend; and her actual good friend, Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie). We haven’t yet seen how Penelope first turned to writing, how exactly a wealthy and sheltered young Regency girl figured out where to go to print her work (and that she would need to be in disguise as a lady’s maid to do so) or how to distribute it.

As “Bridgerton” is not exactly actual history, perhaps the character was inspired by newspaper columns of the day (or later in the 18th century ) which would cover balls, fashion and the happenings of socialites. Lady Whistledown gives full names As Shondaland writes in an interview with “Bridgerton” historical adviser Hannah Greig, “Unlike Lady Whistledown, however, the columnists and writers, many of whom were anonymous, didn’t typically reveal whom exactly they were talking about,” Lady Whistledown gives full names — perhaps not yet realizing she needs to protect herself – but that was not usually done in gossip columns or “scandal sheets,” where the character of the day would be identified only by an initial or a descriptive hint about their identity.

  • We know these entries as “blind items” today.
  • Penelope may have been emboldened to become Lady Whistledown due to the combining force of several factors: the relaxing of some licensing laws during the Regency making it less likely to be accused of libel, and a revolution in printing, making publications much more available.

Greig told Shondaland, “The print culture changed. There was a massive explosion of newspaper culture, of publications of pamphlets — it was a world of paper, basically. And you needed information to put in there. It was a kind of journalistic heyday.” Some popular books around this time were also based on real-life figures, dramatizing the goings-on of wealthy members of society in fiction.

Regency autofiction, if you will. Known as “silver fork novels” or “fashionable” novels, they were specifically marketed as aspirational books for readers in lower classes, ” providing the insider’s insights into high life,” as Tamara S. Wagner writes on The Victorian Web. Penelope is often reading — what else can a neglected young woman without suitors do? Perhaps silver fork novels make up some of her library.

Lady Whistledown writes about high society for high society But Lady Whistledown writes about high society for high society, not as an aspirational manual so much as an insular “who’s who” among the “ton.” Her readers pick up her work hoping (or not hoping) to see themselves as much as to find out what’s going on, or what she deems worthy enough to write about in each issue. Golda Rosheuvel as Queen Charlotte, Hugh Sachs as Brimsley on “Bridgerton” (Liam Daniel/Netflix) Lady Whistledown is a kingmaker. With a sentence, she can send customers to the modiste or suitors away from annoying Cressida Cowper, In a very real sense, Lady Whistledown has the same kind of power as the Queen (Golda Rosheuvel), who anoints a diamond every season : the belle of all balls.

Lady Whistledown has the ability to say whether or not she believes the Queen is right. And, perhaps unlike her royal advisers, the Queen actually listens to Lady Whistledown. She cares very much what the gossip writer thinks, so much so she’s desperately trying to find her. In contrast to the Queen, Penelope has her power because everyone ignores her.

They forget she’s standing there in a corner of the ball. They would never assume the powerful, influential and often cutting writer to be sweet little Penelope Featherington. She uses her disadvantages to her advantage, and her vigilante-type writing allows her to have an alter ego, a life outside the shadows by the punch bowl, a self-actualization that would not be afforded to a young woman of her status otherwise.

Nobody puts Lady Whistledown in the corner. But is Lady Whistledown taking advantage of her power? She sent business to dressmaker Madame Delacroix (Kathryn Drysdale). But she also basically threatened her. Last season, she ended the marriage hopes of her cousin by not-so subtly alluding to the young woman’s pregnancy.

That was punching down. And the fact that her cousin had been engaged to her longtime crush, Colin Bridgerton? That was convenient. Want a daily wrap-up of all the news and commentary Salon has to offer? Subscribe to our morning newsletter, Crash Course.

  • In the 1930s and ’40s, gossip writing saw a heyday in Hollywood’s “Golden Age” when writers with columns were a powerful tool of studios, used to control actors and their under-contract lives,
  • Leaks about romantic dalliances were well-timed for publicity and other, less favorable stories squashed to protect reputations.

(This calls to mind Shy Baldwin’s recent storyline on ” The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel ” with a whole team devoted to protecting the singer’s image.) Kathryn Drysdale as Madame Delacroix, Nicola Coughlan as Penelope Featherington on “Bridgerton” (Liam Daniel/Netflix) Gossip writers like Hedda Hopper had huge readerships at the time. Hopper’s numbered 35 million, But Hopper also was a vocal supporter of The House Committee on Un-American Activities, targeting actors and screenwriters for blacklisting, including accusing them of being communists and going after Ingrid Bergman for being pregnant out of wedlock,

Lady Whistledown is on no payroll but her own. Lady Whistledown is on no payroll but her own. She answers to no one. But with no editor, no newspaper and no real friend who even knows what she does (except Madame Delacroix who has her own reasons for cooperating), the writer has no oversight. No one to ask: Has she gone too far? Will Penelope regret some of her whisperings, the way that 2000s internet gossip maven Perez Hilton, who called abuse survivor Evan Rachel Wood a ” whore ” and mocked Britney Spears’ mental health, now does ? Once Penelope’s friends find out, will they treat her differently? (This season only begins to address the fallout when Eloise susses out the truth.) Will the queen? And how much danger can a young woman of this time be in for speaking, not only her own mind, but trying to influence others? XOXO Lady Whistledown.

Does Eloise forgive Penelope?

Just like in the ” Bridgerton ” TV series, the friendship between Eloise and Penelope is one of the most enduring and important relationships in the book series by Julia Quinn. Throughout the first several books, their friendship is as close as sisters.

In fact, Penelope and Eloise are probably closer to each other than they are to their actual sisters, Both women are a little bit unusual in the society they’re in, with Eloise’s independent spirit and Penelope’s status as a “wallflower” (and, secretly, the powerful and mysterious Lady Whistledown ).

Curious to find out how their friendship pans out in the books after everything that goes down between them in season two ? There are definitely a few twists ahead! (Fair warning: spoilers for the Bridgerton book series ahead, so if you’d rather watch the TV show totally unspoiled, this is where to turn back!) The biggest difference between the TV series and the books is probably the role that Lady Whistledown plays in the earlier years of the series.

  1. In the first few Bridgerton books, Eloise isn’t especially concerned with unmasking Lady Whistledown.
  2. She’s curious, of course, but she doesn’t have quite the same single-minded determination that her TV counterpart has.
  3. Unbeknownst to her, of course, her BFF Penelope is the woman behind the pen, making things much more complicated for the two of them.

In the book series, Eloise’s story, ” To Sir Phillip, With Love,” is set around the same time as Penelope’s “Romancing Mr. Bridgerton.” It’s in “Romancing Mr. Bridgerton ” (the fourth book in the series) that Penelope’s identity as Lady Whistledown is finally revealed, both to readers and to several of the characters.

However, since her story and Eloise’s overlap, Eloise is actually away on her own adventure when Penelope’s identity is revealed, meaning that we don’t really get to see much of Eloise’s reaction to the news. Years later, however, Quinn wrote an additional epilogue to “Romancing Mr. Bridgerton” that finally gives us a peek at how Eloise takes the news.

The bonus chapter is set on Eloise’s wedding day, and Penelope is determined to not spoil her BFF’s wedding day with her own revelation. She feels increasingly guilty as Eloise apologizes to her for keeping her secret romance hidden even from Penelope.

  • Finally, she pulls Eloise aside to confess, only to find out that Hyacinth has already spilled the beans.
  • Instead of reacting with anger, however, Eloise tells Penelope how proud she is of her (and commends her for realizing that no one, not even Eloise, could have kept a secret of that magnitude for long!).

It all ends with the two women confiding in each other again — and teasing each other about whose secret was bigger. Given how much more dramatic Whistledown’s revelations have been in the TV version, such as revealing Marina’s pregnancy, it seems likely that Eloise and Penelope might have a tougher time when the truth comes out.

How did Penelope get caught?

Character Analysis Penelope – Some critics dismiss Penelope as a paragon of marital fidelity — a serious and industrious character, a devoted wife and mother, but one who lacks the fascination and zest for life that some of Homer’s immortal women display.

  1. However, Penelope is not a pasteboard figure.
  2. She is a complicated woman with a wry sense of destiny who weaves her plots as deftly as she weaves a garment.
  3. Penelope is in a very dangerous situation when the suitors begin invading her house and asking — and then demanding — her hand in marriage.
  4. Although the suitors abuse an important social tradition of hospitality, Penelope lacks the natural, social, and familial protections that would enable her to remove them from her house.

Her son, Telemachus, has neither the maturity nor the strength to expel the invaders. Although unassuming, Penelope has a cunning that indicates she is a good mate for her wily husband. Antinous complains of it at the assembly in Book 2. He claims — rightly, by the way — that she has misguided the suitors for nearly four years, leading on each man with hints and promises but choosing no one.

The story of the loom symbolizes the queen’s clever tactics. For three years, Penelope worked at weaving a shroud for the eventual funeral of her father-in-law, Laertes. She claimed that she would choose a husband as soon as the shroud was completed. By day, the queen, a renowned weaver, worked on a great loom in the royal halls.

At night, she secretly unraveled what she had done, amazingly deceiving the young suitors. Her ploy failed only when one of her servants eventually betrayed her and told the suitors what was happening. The contest of the bow and axes is another example of Penelope’s guile; it also illustrates her wry sense of destiny.

After Odysseus returns to Ithaca, the queen announces first to the visiting beggar, whom she suspects to be Odysseus, that she will hold a contest in which the suitors will be asked to string the great bow of Odysseus and shoot an arrow through a dozen axes, an old trick of her husband’s, and that she will be the wife of the man who can perform the feat.

The choice of this particular contest is no coincidence; Penelope knows exactly what she is doing. If the old beggar really is Odysseus in disguise, he alone has any realistic chance of winning the contest.

Why did Penelope expose Eloise?

The real reasons why Eloise is so upset with Penelope for being Lady Whistledown are much deeper than she lets on in the Bridgerton season 2 finale. Eloise Bridgerton is distraught upon learning Penelope Featherington is Lady Whistledown, the famed gossip writer on Bridgerton, The Netflix show dedicates each season to a romance of one of the Bridgerton siblings. However, one of the main “B” storylines is Eloise uncovering the real identity of Lady Whistledown and how Penelope tries to keep it a secret.

Initially, Eloise wants to unmask Lady Whistledown so she can learn from her how to be an independent woman, as she admires the writer’s accomplishments. As the series continues, Eloise’s reasons change to wanting to convince Lady Whistledown to write about the things she wants. This comes to a head when Queen Charlotte believes Eloise was Lady Whistledown.

Desperate to find a solution, Penelope exposes Eloise’s trips to political rallies, which forces the Queen to back off Eloise but also taints the Bridgertons. Eloise connects the writer and her best friend in the Bridgerton season 2 finale, “The Viscount Who Loved Me,” when she recognizes that the way Penelope talks is the same as how Lady Whistledown writes.

While Eloise sees what Penelope did as a betrayal, her anger and hurt come from a deeper place. Eloise admires Lady Whistledown for her success, independence, and distaste for society. Penelope, however, is someone whom Eloise has never associated with these qualities; instead, viewing her as meek, under her mother’s control, and above all else, kind.

Eloise’s anger truly stems from jealousy that she was not the one to break from society’s restrictions and that Penelope has not been the person she always thought she was. Eloise prides herself on being a woman ahead of her time, but instead of using her privileged position to make something of herself, Eloise wallows in it. Daphne’s successful marriage to a Duke affords Eloise the luxury of not having to marry. Yet, she does nothing to make herself independent and berates Daphne, as well as other women, for doing what is necessary for their family by marrying.

When speaking with Penelope, every conversation is about Eloise and what she wants for herself. Still, whenever Penelope expresses her wish to both be successful and to marry, Eloise looks down on her for wanting it all. Eloise’s discoveries that Penelope is Lady Whistledown and the first of them to achieve what she wants for herself cause her to look inward at how she has underestimated and undervalued Penelope and her potential.

It is no wonder that the first time Eloise truly listened to Penelope when she spoke, she heard her real voice. Penelope being Lady Whistledown also deeply hurts Eloise due to how different the two are. Penelope is sweet, non-confrontational, and unconditionally in love with Colin Bridgerton, while Lady Whistledown is cutthroat, opinionated, and very critical of the courtships throughout the social season.

  • While Eloise looks up to Lady Whistledown as someone to aspire to be, she also depends on Penelope’s loyalty and caring nature.
  • Penelope is the one person whom Eloise feels she does not disappoint and who has never shown judgment for Eloise’s ambitions.
  • The revelation that Penelope is Lady Whistledown makes Eloise wonder how someone so gentle could be capable of what Lady Whistledown has done and throws into question how much of her friendship with Penelope is real and how much is all a lie.

Going into Bridgerton season 3, Eloise and Penelope have not solved their issues, and with the main love story being Colin and Penelope’s, hopefully, the two girls will mend their friendship. However, for Eloise to have been bested in her goals by her closest friend is a sting more painful than any scandal Lady Whistledown will write.

Who does Eloise Bridgerton end up with?

To Sir Phillip, With Love – Now 29% Off Eloise Bridgerton is dubbed a spinster for being single at 28 (the Regency era had its drawbacks), and she’s just fine with that. She wants more out of life than to be married—but after her best friend Penelope finds love, she starts to doubt her own choice to stay single.

Why is Penelope always dressed in yellow?

There’s a Hidden Meaning Behind Bridgerton’s Penelope Always Wearing Yellow Bridgerton has been around less than two years and has already become one of the most popular Netflix shows. Fans love being swept away into the romance of the past, the scandals, the drama, and the emotionally charged storylines of the myriad of characters.

The actors bring to life some of the most wonderful, charismatic, and yes also frustrating and annoying muses that television has seen in a very long time. A great deal goes into creating a show like The writing, the production, the sets, and of course, the costumes. Costuming is one of those rare gems in the world of movies and television, whereby if it is done exceptionally well, you almost do not notice it.

Costume designers are able to express their own creativity in their work, and when they unite with writers to produce subtle little hints, true magic can happen. Did any of you even notice that Penelope Featherington, the heavyset eldest daughter of the Featherington family who has an interminable crush on Colin Bridgerton, usually always wears yellow? Well, if you did not, you certainly will now.

Penelope stands out from her peers through her choice of dresses, often sporting bright flowery patterns and hues of lemon, fallow, citrine, canary, and even goldenrod. And there is a very specific reason for this. Nothing any character wears in anything you have ever seen is by accident. Legendary costume designer Ellen Mirojnick has explained that Penelope’s attire was heavily influenced by two key factors.

Firstly, the fact that she is dishonest and plainly hiding something all through the first season. And secondly, yellow was a popular color for women of high status in the time Bridgerton is set. Season One introduced us to Penelope and we very soon suspected she had some dark secrets, on top of her strong feelings for series protagonist Colin Bridgerton.

But what we did not see was the shocking twist that revealed to us all that Penelope was in fact equally reviled and revered gossip writer Lady Whistledown. The series has taken a deliberate departure from the books here, where her secret identity remained a secret for far longer. Penelope has grown as a character during season two, however.

We hear her tell another character that she is not fond of wearing yellow. This is our first clue into Penelope’s shifting nature. She no longer wishes to be deceitful. She wants to be honest and open. And slowly, but surely, we have begun to see her in other colors as she transitions into a less devious woman.

  1. It is exciting to ponder what awaits Penelope in the upcoming third season.
  2. And also to wonder, just what colors will she be wearing? Bridgerton has been around less than two years and has already become one of the most popular Netflix shows.

Why does Eloise name her daughter Penelope

Answered By: Caleb Cox Date: created: Sep 27 2023

Penelope Bridgerton – Eloise and Penelope have been best friends since they were kids and eventually became sisters-in-law when Penelope married Eloise’s older brother, Colin, much to Eloise’s surprise. Eloise named her daughter Penelope, after her friend.

Why did Penelope remarry?

Abstract In this paper, taking the matter of Penelope’s remarriage in the Odyssey (18 : 158-303)as an example, I attempt to show how this epic is created from the folktale “A Husband at the Wedding of His Wife.” A husband has left home and has been away for a long time.

  1. His wife is convinced that he will never return ; consequently she accepts a man who is eager to marry her.
  2. During the wedding ceremony, however, the husband suddenly reappears.
  3. This is the basic plot of a folktale found in many parts of the world, and it serves as a basis for the Odyssey.
  4. In the folktale, remarriage does not seem to be at all painful for the wife.

Penelope, however, is deeply grieved at the separation from her husband, Odysseus, whom she loves even now ; and, despite the pressure exerted by her many suitors, she is reluctant to remarry. What has finally led Penelope decide to remarry is the circumstance that her son, Telemachus, has now reached manhood.

  • On leaving for Troy, Odysseus had spoken these words to her : “-when you see our son has grown a beard, marry the man you wish, and leave your home”(18: 269-270; trans.D.B. Hull).
  • She informs the suitors of these words, painfully announced that she decided to remarry- “There will be a night when hateful marriage comes to wretched me” (18 : 272-273 ; trans.D.B.

Hull)-and goads them into bringing gifts to her. It is just at this point that Odysseus, disguised as a beggar, returns after twenty years’ absence and so hears his wife’s reluctant declaration. His feelings on this occasion are naturally complicated : pain at the prospect of losing his wife and delight in her faithfulness and continuing love for him.

  • It would be only natural to suppose that the husband in such a situation would be in agony ; Odysseus, on the contrary, is strangely glad.
  • By charming her suitors with carefully chosen words, Penelope, though placed in a miserable situation, will receive rich gifts.
  • It is the opinion of some scholars that Odysseus’ parting instruction is a fabrication ofPenelope to put off the suitors and delay the time of remarriage.

Believing the prophecy of the seer Theoclymenus, she is convinced that Odysseus will return home safely ; therefore, Odysseus, hearing her invent his parting words, is aware of her scheme and is reassured that she does not desire to remarry. Consequently, he is delighted.

If this is the case, then why, if she strongly believes in her husband’s return, does Penelope pray to the goddess Artemis asking that she “would shoot meso I’d take Odysseus’ image underground with me, and not delight some lesserhusband’s heart”(20 : 80-82 ; trans.D.B. Hull)? Such words seem to indicate that, on the contrary, Penelope strongly believes that Odysseus will not come back.

Why, then, is he glad when he hears her announce her decision to remarry? The answer may lie in the fact that the plot of the epic develops beyond the bare outline of the folktale. The Odyssey proceeds to the reunion of husband and wife following the husband’s revenge on the suitors.

This revenge is carried out with the assistance of the goddess Athene. She incites Odysseus to action with the words “Think how you’ll lay your hands upon the suitors”(13 : 376 ; trans.D.B. Hull)in the great hall of his own house. Therefore, Odysseus’ delight in Penelope’s announcement that she will remarry in spite of her hatred of the suitors also has to be understood in relation to his revenge on them.

When Penelope appears in the hall, one of the suitors informs her that more suitors will stay at her house from the next day on. She tells him of the parting words of her husband, informs him of her decision to remarry, and demands gifts. Another suitor proposes that all the suitors bring their gifts and remain in the hall until she finally chooses a husband from among them.

Who did Penelope give birth to?

Penelope, in Greek mythology, a daughter of Icarius of Sparta and the nymph Periboea and wife of the hero Odysseus, They had one son, Telemachus, Homer’s Odyssey tells the story of how, during her husband’s long absence after the Trojan War, many chieftains of Ithaca and nearby islands become her suitors.

  1. To spare herself their importunities she insists that they wait until she has woven a shroud for Laertes, father of Odysseus.
  2. Every night for three years, until one of her maids reveals the secret, she unravels the piece that she has woven by day so that she will not have to give up hope for the return of her beloved husband and remarry.

When at length Odysseus does return, she makes him prove his identity and finally accepts him. Britannica Quiz A Study of Greek and Roman Mythology Homer’s account has remained the dominant one.
