The Trojan War is one of the most famous wars in history.It is well known for the ten-year duration, for the heroism of a number oflegendary characters, and for the Trojan horse. What may not be familiar,however, is the story of how the war began.

According to Greek myth, the strife between the Trojans andthe Greeks started at the wedding of Peleus, King of Thessaly, and Thetis, asea nymph. All of the gods and goddesses had been invited to the weddingcelebration in Troyexcept Eris, goddesses of discord. She had been omitted from the guest listbecause her presence always embroiled mortals and immortals alike in conflict.

To take revenge on those who had slighted her, Eris decidedto cause a skirmish. Into the middle of the banquet hall, she threw a goldenapple marked or the most beautiful.?All of the goddesses began to haggle overwho should possess it. The gods and goddesses reached a stalemate when thechoice was narrowed to Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite. Someone was needed tosettle the controversy by picking a winner. The job eventually fell to Paris, son of King Priam of Troy, who was said to be a good judge ofbeauty.

Paris did not have an easy job. Each goddess, eager to win the goldenapple, tried aggressively to bribe him.

She won the golden apple by offering Helen, Zeus'daughter and the most beautiful mortal, to Paris. Paris,anxious to claim Helen, set off for Sparta in Greece.

Although Paris learned that Helenwas married, he accepted the hospitality of her husband, King Menelasu of Sparta, anyway.Therefore, Menelaus was outraged for a number of reasons when Parisdeparted, taking Helen and much of the king's wealth back to Troy.
