Oedipus was a great king and he had inherited a royal blood. was brought up by royal parents (though not his own). and earned kingship by solving the riddle of Sphinx. He was a gifted person and he had always taken chances with his fate. He had desired to outwit his fate just like his own father, Laius. Oedipus believed that he could evade his fate by intervening in the decisions of the gods. He was so sure about himself that he believed he could influence his fate by changing the way things were going. His real father, Laius, ankle-bound him and gave him to a herdsman to be left out in the mountains. His life was saved by the gods and he was brought up by an issueless king of Corinth, Polybus. Oedipus could have enjoyed a life of a king, had he not intervened in the working of the fate. Upon hearing the prediction that he would slay his own father and wed his mother, he left the castle in rage. In his blind fury, he met his real father Laius and got into an argument with him and killed him and all his companions, except for one. Oedipus could be blamed for this act because this could have been avoided. He was in a rage and so much distressed that he let it out on Laius and his companions, who were going back from Delphi.
