Helen, you are the most beautiful girl I've ever met.
Why not me?!
ENOUGH!!! Paris will decide who gets the apple.
That apple belongs to me!!
Aphrodite has no doubt that she is the fairest and most beautiful goddess of all.
If you let me win, I will make Helen love you!
I like where you're going!
Until, the prince, Paris, tells Helen that SHE is the most beautiful, which upset Aphrodite a lot.
Let's go to Troy!
A golden apple was placed on the center of the table at a wedding party that Aphrodite and Paris attended. This apple was for the most beautiful goddess and Aphrodite, Athena, and Hera fought for it. Zeus then decides that Paris should choose who gets the golden apple.
Aphrodite bribed the prince into picking her because she told him that if she was picked, she would cast a spell on Helen to make her fall in love with Prince Paris.
Aphrodite kept her promise and struck Helen with a love potion and Helen and Paris left for Troy together.
The king of Sparta, Helen's husband, went after his wife, attacking Troy, therefore, beginning the Trojan War.
