Cassandra of Troy was beautiful and intelligent. She was desired by Apollo, but shunned his advances, and so he cursed her. As a result, Cassandra could predict the future, but no one would believe her predictions. Eventually, this drove her to insanity.

Ironically, the meaning of the name Cassandra is “Seductress or Entangler of Men.” Go figure. ;)
