Troy was a big, beautiful, city known for the beautiful fortress.
Queen Hecuba was about to give birth to her child, Paris. But, before she gave birth, she was cursed with a nightmare! Paris was born torch not a baby! The prophet and king decided it would be best to kill the child, but instead the king gave orders to Agelaos to kill the son.
Agelaos (a herdsmen) takes baby Paris to the top of a hill. The King tells him to cut Paris's tongue out so he knows he's dead.
Agelaos didn't want to kill Paris yet, so he left him on top of the mountain and would come back the next day. Agelaos was expecting Paris to be eaten by wild animals, but to his surprise Paris was getting cared by bears!
Agelaos knew this must've been a sign from the gods to keep this charming baby.
Agelaos secretly raised Paris into a strong man.
