She was so beautiful that all of the Greek kings wanted to marry her.
Helen of Sparta was said to be the most beautiful woman to have ever lived.
Eventually, Helen married Menelaus. Brother of King Agamemnon.
Aphrodite, the goddess of love, had already promised Helen to Paris, a prince of Troy.
This made Agamemnon furious! In an attempt to get Helena back, he launched a military attack on Troy.
Aphrodite made Helen fall in love with Paris. The two sailed to Troy.
Among the Greek soldiers who joined Agamemnon was Achilles. Who was said to be invinsible. Fighting for Troy was Hector, said to be the greatest warrior to have ever lived. The war waged on for 10 years, until the Greeks pretended to surrender to the Trojans.
Greek soldiers hid inside a giant wooden horse that they left outside the gates of Troy. The Trojans accepted it as a gift. When night fell the Greeks came out from inside and defeated the city of Troy
