The Trojan War 

The war was between the Greeks and the Trojans after Paris of Troy took Helen from her husband, King of Sparta. It has been retold in many different Greek stories and myths including Homer’s Illiad.

The war began after an argument between the goddesses Aphrodite, Hera, and Athena over a golden apple addressed to ‘the fairest’. The three goddesses went to Helen and asked who the fairest was and she replied Aphrodite should receive the apple. In exchange Aphrodite made Helen fall in love with Paris and he took her to Troy.

The war lasted ten years, leaning in the favor of the Trojans before they fell for the famous Trojan Horse, the Greeks slaughtered everyone in the city, thus winning the war.
