This storyboard does not have a description.
In the beginning, King Peleus and Thetis a sea nymph were married. All of the gods were invited except for the goddess of discord, Eris. Eris dropped the golden apple in a fruit bowl and soon disappeared. On the apple it said "To the fairest" Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite were fighting on who was the fairest. The princesses wanted the peasants to tell them who was the fairest. Nobody wanted to tell them because then they would make an enemy of the other two. The three princesses argued for a while.
King Priam and Queen Hecuba had a baby boy. They named their son Paris. A soothsayer predicted Paris would be trouble and cause the whole city to burn down. His father sent him to the forest to die but a herdsman finds him and raises him. Paris grows tall, strong, and handsome. He falls in love with Oenone a wood nymph who can heal mortal wounds. Three goddesses saw Paris and wanted him to decide who was the best. Athena promises wisdom, Hera promises power and honor, and Aphrodite promises a pretty wife. Paris chooses Aphrodite because he wanted a beautiful wife.
King Menelaus married Helen of the fair cheeks. Everyone wanted to marry her because she was the most beautiful women ever. Paris met Helen, he loved her so much. He chased Helen and told Oenone she was worthless. After, Paris asked his father for a boat to take Helen away.
Please come with me! I love you!
Paris met King Menelaus and told his long tales. Helen saw Paris was young and didn't like being married to old King Menelaus. Paris noticed that Helen was even more beautiful than the stories told about her.
One day King Menelaus went to go hunting, Paris was with Helen. He was explaining his love to her and convinced her to come to Troy. He was ready for his evil plan.
Helen and Paris snuck away on Paris's great ships. Helen's baby was with the maidens being cared for. She left her lord, babe, and honor.
