The goddesses went to find the boy and settled on Paris.
I choose... Aphrodite!
Paris Arrived at the palace... Uninvited?!?
I can't believe this is happening
I hope the king doesn't find out!!
And suddenly an apple landed on the table! Demeter had thrown the apple and stated: "it is meant for the fairest of the land." Hera, Aphrodite, and Athena all stood up to claim it. Zeus Exclaimed: "We will find the most naive boy in the land to determine who it belongs to!"
The Trojans captured Helen...
She will never leave Troy!
Once the goddesses arrived they each offered a unique gift. But, Aphrodite offered a gift he couldn't refuse... A wife! After Paris heard he immediately chose her. She was so pleased! The others could not believe her eyes.
The war began!
Later that night Paris and Helen snuck out of the palace together. When the king found out that morning he sent out a search party to look for her and kill her captor.
On the final day of the war...
When Agamemnon heard that the Trojans refused to release her they called upon the Greeks to start a war against the Trojans.
The war raged on for many years without end. Many of the greatest war heroes were lost. Some even began to think Odysseus, the best athlete ever recorded (after Achilles) was dead.
Odysseus returned home and found Penelope. At first, Penelope was slow to approach, but quickly realized it was him. The two embraced and at that moment the war ended.
