The other gods don’t want to invite me to their party huh
Well I’ll show them that they should never forget about me
Hey what’s wrong, you look a little pale
On Mount Olympus a decadent wedding feast was held and all the gods were invited. Unfortunately, the goddess of discord, Eris, was mistakenly left off the guest list.
Because Eris was looked over and not invited to the party Eris became very angry and sought revenge.
Eris appeared at the party and rolled a golden apple amongst the party guests. Upon the golden apple was written, “To the Fairest.”
Three Olympian goddesses, Hera (queen of the gods), Athena (goddess of wisdom and war), and Aphrodite (goddess of love and beauty), all claimed the prize. To settle the matter, Zeus asked Hermes, the messenger god, to appoint an impartial judge. Hermes chose the beautiful young mortal Paris, who was the son of Priam, the king of Troy.
Each goddess tried to influence Paris with a special gift.
Meanwhile, they pretended to sail away. That night the Trojans took the Horse into their city and the warriors crept out and threw open the city’s gates. The Greeks entered, sacked the city and claimed a victorious end to the great Trojan War.
