Paris was the Prince of Troy, he fell in love with a woman named Helen. Helen was already married to a greek man called Menelaus, who is the King of Troy. Helen and Paris decided to run away together. They travelled back from Sparta and took many treasures from Menelaus. This started a war.
For 10 years the Greeks circled and blocaded the city of Troy but could not get past its huge walls and gates surrounding the city.
The Greeks Devised a plan to trick the Troy people into opening the gates for them. The Greeks built a huge horse, but is was hollow on the inside.
The Greeks filled the horse with Greek soldiers. THe Greeks ships left the hose and 1 soldier named sinon.
The Troy army thought this was a battle plan at first, but it proved itself to be a gift for Athena. Sinon convinced the Troy army that it was a gift, little did they know there were soldiers inside the horse.
Sinon escaped and opened the horse. THe greek soldiers snuck out and opened the gates for the rest of the greek army to eneter and conquer troy.
