"Your newborn son will be the downfall of Troy," Aesacus said. "He must be killed to save our people."
Agelaus took the baby to Mount Ida to kill the baby. He was unable to do the task so he decided to leave the baby in the wilderness hoping he would die on his own.
When Agelaus returned to the wilderness for the baby's body he had seen the baby was still alive and took him to raise as his own. Paris then grew up and became known as a man of fair judgment.
Zeus had a wedding for Thetis and Peleus and invited all the gods and goddesses except for Eris the goddess of chaos. Eris heard about the wedding that she was not to go to and became furious, for revenge Eris threw a golden apple into the crowd and the three goddesses Aphrodite, Athena and Hera fought over it to see who was the fairest.
The goddesses continued their argument until they asked Zeus who he thought the fairest was. Zeus did not want to make the decision so he sent the goddesses to Paris who was known for fair judgement.
And so the goddesses went to Paris and each one of them bribed him by giving him offers. Aphrodite's offer seemed to catch his attention most and it was to make Helen the wife of King Menelaus fall in love with him. So Paris gave Aphrodite the golden apple and Helen went to him.
