King Priam ruled the city of Troy with his wife Queen Hecuba.
Gods gave a dream to Hecuba. She dreamt that she would give birth to a torch.
The next day, Hecuba went to a temple to ask a priest of the meanings about her strange dream. The priest told her that her dream was a message from the gods and that she will give birth to a boy who will be the destruction of Troy.
After Hecuba gave birth to a boy, her husband Priam told a slave to kill the baby with a sword.
The slave took the boy to a mountain but he didn't kill the child. He just abandoned the boy. Later a bear found the boy and took care of him.
The slave returned to the mountain after a while and found the boy still alive. He put him in his backpack and took him back home. The slave named the boy Paris.
