  • 1. TROJAN WAR TIMELINE
  • 2. THE APPLE OF DISCORD The origins of the Trojan War can be traced back to Peleus and Thetis’ marriage Because Eris, Goddess of Discord, was not invited, she threw a golden apple on a table at the wedding After Aphrodite, Hera, and Athena reached for the apple, Paris was chosen to choose the most beautiful Paris chose Aphrodite, and consequently, he set sail for Sparta to steal Helen

  • 5.  No Helen
  • 6.  So they went home
  • 7. BUT. THEY GET LUCKY Telephus traveled to Greece to have his wound healed After being told that only his attacker(Achilles) could fix him up, he kindly gave directions to Troy
  • 8. THIS IS…THE BEGINNING OF A LONG ANDPOINTLESS FIGHT Odysseus and Menelaus went to King Priam to demand Helen back His answer?
  • 9. AND SO… War ensued for many years
  • 10.  Eventually, Hector, Achilles, and Patroclus were dead
  • 11. TROJAN HORSE Odysseus had a large, hollow wooden horse crafted Most of the Greeks had left The Trojans victoriously brought the horse into the city
