  • hi I am Gorgias. I am here to tell you the REAL story of Helen 
  • time to convince the Greeks with my ingenious encomium. ah, the power of rhetoric!
  • and why she is BLAMELESS for the Trojan War
  • child of Zeus, (a GOD!) Tyndareus (A GOOD MAN!), Leda (a woman!)
  • She brought together great men with her godlike beauty
  • At last, she chose Prince  Menelaus to be her husband, and they lived happily ever after...
  • or NOT!?
  • Paris, prince of Troy, traveled to Sparta on the advice goddess Aphrodite. She had promised him the most beautiful woman in the world after he named her the "fairest" goddess. 
  • with the power of my looks, I will seduce you!
  • I am in love!
  • Paris took Helen back to Troy...
  • did Paris kidnap her? did he seduce her with his looks? Either way, we can't blame Helen for these things beyond her control!
  • When Menelaus returned home and discovered Helen gone, he called on the leaders of Greece, who had sworn to support him if necessary.
  • The Greeks set sail for Troy - their arrival at Troy marked the beginning of the Trojan War
