  • is it a present for us?
  • In Greece, King Pelias was taking Thetis the sea nymph as his bride. Since Pelias and Thetis were prominent figures, both gods and mortals attended the wedding.
  • To the Fairest
  • Eris, the goddess of strife and discord, was jealous and angry because she was not invited to the wedding, but she came anyway. When she appeared, everyone turned to stare at the unwelcome guest. She held a beautiful golden apple, and with a piercing laugh, she tossed it onto the ground.
  • "let us get on with the feast!"
  • The apple rolled around, winding through the crowd and ending at the feet of the three most powerful goddesses, Athena, the goddess of wisdom, Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, and Hera, the queen of the gods and wife to Zeus. Everyone looked to Eris for an explanation, but she was gone.
  • "Paris, the true son of King Priam of Troy, will be the fair judge."
  • King Pelias reached for the apple, but as soon as he touched it, a chill ran down his spine. He saw letters that read 'to the fairest'. The goddesses questioned. "Who is it for?
  • A crowd gathered around and chatted about who should get the apple, but King Pelias grew distraught on this happy day. So, Zeus, king of the gods, stepped forward. "Tonight is not the time to decide who gets the apple. We are here to celebrate the wedding. Let us get on with the feast!"
  • The three goddesses began to bicker about who should get the apple. Finally Zeus couldn't take it. "He interrupted them and proclaimed "Paris, the true son of King Priam of Troy, will be the fair judge. It will be up to him to decide who gets the golden apple!" He then took the apple and returned to the wedding. But the happy atmosphere of the wedding was gone.
