The Queen of the Sea was Amphitrite, wife of Poseidon in Greek mythology.
She was said to be the mother of a variety of sea creatures, including dolphins and the merman Sea-God Triton. Her own parentage is disputed: one source declares her a daughter of Nereus, making her a Nereid; another places her among the Oceanids, with Oceanus as her father. She has often been referred to in poetry as a female personification of the sea. Both naval ships and asteroids have been named in her honour.
