Sophocles wrote Antigone around 442 B.C. It was written before Oedipus the King and Oedipus at Colonus, but the events of Antigone take place after the events of those two books (Source).

Antigone had to guide her exiled and blind dad/half brother around, before she was rebelling against Creon. Sure built some character, huh? (Source).
