The Trojan war

The Trojan War is one of the most memorable wars in Greek history. Even though it was a mythological war, the Greeks act as if it was a real event. The cause of the war was when Paris, the prince of Troy, abducted Helen, the wife of King Menelaus of Sparta, because she was his "Prize". When Menelaus found out, he sent the Greek army to Troy to get Helen back. 

This was a contest between the three most beautiful goddesses of Olympus - Aphrodite, Hera and Athena - for a golden apple that was presented to the fairest goddess.
This was one of the main events that started the Trojan War. Helen was abducted because Paris wanted Helen to be his.
