Queen Hecuba of Troy was pregnant. She had a dream of giving birth to a torch. People told her that this baby would be the downfall of Troy. Queen Hecuba and her King told their chief herdsman to kill their baby.
He took the baby to the mountain and could not bring himself to do it. He left the baby there knowing it would die after time alone in the woods. But that night, a bear saw the baby lying there and sat by him, protecting it through the night.
In the morning the herdsman went back to get the baby, and it was still alive. He took this as a sign and raised the baby as his own. Baby Paris grew up to be a handsome intelligent man.
One day, Paris offered the people in his city to fight against his bull. If anyone had won, he would award them with a golden crown. Ares won with ease and Paris stuck to his agreement. People in the town started to know Paris for his honesty.
