In Greek mythology, Memnon (Greek: Mέμνων) was an Ethiopian king and son of Tithonus and Eos. As a warrior he was considered to be almost Achilles' equal in skill. At the Trojan War, he brought an army to Troy's defense and was killed by Achilles in retribution for killing Antilochus.


Orlando (then known as Master Bion) was under the auspices of "Abyssinian chieftain" Memnon and was sent by him to defend Ilium to fight for the city against the Greeks.
