Once upon a time, the Greek goddesses Hera, Aphrodite, and Athena were arguing about who the most beautiful and fairest was.
I am the most beautiful and fairest goddess of all!
That's not true! I am.
Both of you are wrong. I am the most beautiful of all!
They needed some help, so they chose Paris, the youngest son of King Priam of Troy.All three goddesses offered Paris the best gift they could offer.
I will give you the most beautiful woman in the world!
I will give you wisdom.
I offer you power.
I know! If I choose Aphrodite. I am going to have the most beautiful woman for me!
Now, what do I do? How can I decide?
You, Aphrodite are the fairest goddess of all.
So Paris, made his decision. The fairest goddess on Mount Olympus was Aphrodite.
I am so in love with you Paris. I don't know why?
But the most beautiful woman wasn't available. Helen, Queen of Sparta, was the wife of King Menelaus. But with the power of Aphrodite, Hera fell in love with Paris.
What's going on here? That's my wife!!!
Let's go my love!
King Menelaus was furious. He asked all the best Greek warriors to help him get Helen back. In response, more than a thousand Greek ships and soldiers set sail for Troy. And that was how the Trojan War began.
