In Gilgamesh, Gilgamesh is a tyrant to the people of his city.  He works them half to death building the walls of the city, lets the walls decay and then has them rebuild the walls.  Additionally, he also sleeps with brides before the husbands do.  He feels it is his birthright to be able to do this.
