The people of Thebes were so glad when they heard the news that they made the stranger their king, and called him King Oedipus, for this was his name.

Now Oedipus was really the son of King Laius, but the people of Thebes did not know it, nor did Oedipus know it himself.


(Kaiming Third English Book)


I’d like to know what the ‘now’ means in this sentence.


Many thanks in advance.
