The Legend Of The Trojan War
The legend of how the Trojan War started says the cause of the fight between the Mycenaeans and the Trojans was Helen of Sparta.
At the wedding party of Peleus, the King Pithia, and the goddess of the sea, Thetis, every god and goddess was invited except Eris, the goddess of disagreement and conflict. Eris was angry at them, so she threw a golden apple into the center of the party. On the apple were the words "to the most beautiful." More than one goddess declared that they should own the apple. Hera, Aphrodite, and Anthena all wanted it. To help decide who was the most beautiful Paris, the King of Troy, was going to be the judge. The goddesses tempted Paris with lots of gifts like power and love. In the end Paris picked Aphrodite because she gave the most beautiful gift of all. Woman on the Earth. Everyone knew at the time that Helen was the most beautiful woman. She was married to King Menelaus of Sparta, so Aphrodite put a spell on Helen to fall in love with Paris. Paris came to visit and then Helen left with him to go back to Troy. Now Aphrodite would not have to worry about Helen being in the way, and she would be the most beautiful. As soon as King Menelaus heard the news he was furious. He sent a thousand ships to Troy to go get Helen back. Before King Menelaus came to Troy Agamemnon, a commander and chief of the Achaeans in the Trojan War, said he would sacrifice his daughter in order for the king’s ships to have a safe ride.
When the Achaeans knew they could not take over the city of Troy by fighting them constantly in a war, they decided to play a trick on the Trojans. They built a huge wooden horse and placed it at the huge wooden gates of Troy, then they sailed away. The Trojans took what they thought was a gift into their city. What they didn’t know was that inside the horses were soldiers. They soldiers defeated Troy, destroyed almost everything, and then came back as heroes. ] Expert answered|chris6391|Points 35|
