Who was killed by an arrow in his heel?

Achilles Who was killed by an arrow in his heel?
The answer is: Achilles

In Greek mythology, Achilles (Ancient Greek: ?????e??) was a Greek hero of the Trojan War, the central character and the greatest warrior of Homer's Iliad, which takes for its theme the Wrath of Achilles. Achilles also has the attributes of being the most handsome of the heroes assembled against Troy, as well as the quickest.
Later legends state that Achilles was invulnerable in all of his body except for his heel. These legends state that Achilles was killed in battle by an arrow to the heel, and so an "Achilles' heel" has come to mean a person's principal weakness.
