This storyboard does not have a description.
Helen of Sparta was the most beautiful women in Greece and all of the Greek kings wanted to marry her. Helen eventually married Menelaus, the King of Sparta, brother to King Agamemnon of Mycenae.
Helen's father made all of her suitors swear an oath to support Menelaus and to protect Helen from any enemies.
I hope you keep the oath
Hahaha she loves me
Unfortunately for the new couple, Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, promised Helen to the prince of Troy. So she made Helen for in love with the prince, and they fled to Troy.
When Helen ran away to Troy with her prince, Agamemnon was angered by his brothers humiliation. He reminded the other Greek kings of their oath, and a great military expedition to Troy took place to get back Helen.
Troy was heavily defended by soldiers, and the huge palace walls were built for protection and defence against enemies. Troy wasn't easily defeated and the battle lasted for ten years.
Then Odysseus, the King of Ithaca, thought of a trick to take Troy and recover the Queen. They built a huge, wooden horse, left it outside the city and then sailed away. The Trojans took the horse into the city. That night the Greek soldiers, who were concealed inside the hollow horse, crept out and opened the gates for the Greek army. They then snuck into the city and killed all the men and used the women and children as slaves.
