Xerxes, the Lord Emperor of Argos for many years, ruled as a tyrant. The Black Wolf and her "Wolf Pack" fought against Lord Xerxes, resulting in his death. Following this, the Wolf Pack sought to use friends in the government to restore order to Argos.
Sometime thereafter, the former King of Corinth, Jason, became ruler of Argos. Due to the murder of his family, Marcus acted as regent. Marcus conspired with Castor to depose Jason and briefly replace him as King. Following the Second Expedition of the Argonauts, Castor and Marcus were both killed and Jason became proper ruler of Argos.
It is possible that Iphicles also ruled Argos for a short time, as he succeeded Jason as ruler of Corinth.
