    • The Trojan War By: Nathalie Villegas and Ryan Ratner Block 1
      • The Trojan War is one of the most important events in Greek mythology.

      • During this war, the Achaeans battled the city of Troy.
    • Map of the Trojan War
      • The Trojan War started because of a feud between three goddesses: Athena, Hera, and Aphrodite.
      • The goddess of strife and discord, Eris, gave them a golden apple that was marked to be “for the fairest”.
      • The goddesses went to Paris, the king of Troy, who judged Aphrodite as the fairest.
      • Because of this, Aphrodite made Helen fall in love with Paris and he took her back to Troy.
      • Since Agamemnon was Menelaus’ brother, he led his Achaean troops to attack Troy.
    • The Trojan Horse
      • The walls of Troy were very strong, so the Achaeans developed a master plan to overcome this obstacle.
      • Odysseus had a large, hollow, wooden horse built.

      • Sinon pretended to be angry and told the Trojans he was left behind and that the horse was safe and would bring luck.
