I had a dream that my son was a torch, and he burned down the city of Troy
This dream was an omen of the future, the baby must be killed at birth.
Please take this baby away, and bring back its tongue as proof that he is dead.
The night before Paris was born, Queen Hecuba had a terrible dream. In her dream she saw the birth of her son, but instead of a healthy boy, she gave birth to a flaming torch. This torch burned down the city of troy.
Queen Hecuba told her husband, King Priam, about her dream she had about her baby Paris. He decided that he needed to talk to the prophets or the wise men of the city. The Prophets decided that they would need to kill the baby so he won't cause destruction to the city for Troy
King Priam gave the job of killing the baby to his herdsmen, Agelaos. He told Ageleos to take the baby away form him and bring back his tongue as proof that the baby is dead. Agelaos obeyed his king and waited until the baby was born.
Agelaos couldn't kill the charming boy, so he decided to leave baby Paris on the side of the slopes. Agelaos left Paris there and came back the very next day and finds Paris being cared for by a family of bears.
Agelaos thought that it was a sign from the gods, so he kept Paris as his own son, and found a wild dog and killed it and got its tongue to show the king.
Once the king was convined that Paris was dead, Agelaos took Paris and raised him to be his son. He taught him to hunt a d how the herd cattle on a mountin slopes. Paris grew up to be a strong, handsome and healthy boy.
