Helen of Troy
the most beautiful woman in the world in Greek mythology …
Birth
In most sources, including the Iliad and the Odyssey, Helen is the daughter of Zeus and of Leda, the wife of the Spartan king Tyndareus.
Zeus fell in love with the beautiful Leda and the same night that Tyndareus joined with Leda, so too did the father of the gods, in the form of a swan.
After her antics with the bird, Leda laid two eggs from which hatched Helen and Pollux, children of Zeus, immortals, and Clytemnestra and Castor,
children of Tyndareus, mortals.
Leda, Queen of Sparta

Abduction by Theseus
The suitors
At the age of twelve, she was abducted by Theseus.
And all the Greek heroes wanted to marry her. Among the hundred or so suitors
Menelaus was chosen as Helen's husband.

Besides recovering their sister, they took Theseus' mother, Aetra, as a slave.

Zeus’s plan
Abduction or Seduction by Paris
None of the heroes on Helen's list of suitors knew of Zeus’s plan.
Zeus has overthrown his father Cronus,
Cronus had overthrown his father Uranus,
Zeus had many relationships from which many children were born,
Zeus has heard a prophecy that he would be dethroned by one of his sons ...
many people, many demigod descendants ... the Trojan War, is going to be his means of obliterate the race of men and of heroes in particular.
A central element of the plan was a beauty contest between three goddesses
and ...
a Trojan prince arrived in Sparta to claim Helen ...
abducting Helena against her will ...
a Greek palace,
a Greek dock with a Trojan ship waiting to escape with the prize

Helen and Paris set off for Troy ...
Helen, dressed in a beige dress, takes Paris' hand,
Paris seems happy to have succeeded in abducting Hélène,

the magic is working, but beware, something very serious is going to happen.
And indeed ...

the burning of the city

This has started to look consensual, although still a seduction by Paris ...

So maybe Paris didn't have to abduct Helen after all,
but
Aphrodite and Eros had to persuade the queen to allow herself to be seduced.

Troy …
In Troy
Menelaus, accompanied by a large coalition of armies, sails for Troy in search of his wife.
The war lasted ten years …
and ...
Menelaus finds Helen,
and raises his sword to kill her,
and drops his sword before the irresistible beauty
the lofty towers of the fortified city,
doves of peace,
white roses of Aphrodite
Helen innocent of any wrongdoing,
admires herself in a mirror, the back of which bears the image of Aphrodite.

In Homer, Helen blames herself for the war, but Priam is there to remind her that
“thou art nowise to blame in my eyes;
it is the gods, methinks, that are to blame,
who roused against me the tearful war of the Achaeans”
(Book III).

the tragic beauty …
On the ramparts of Troy ...
Helen, somber and thoughtful, without remorse at the spectacle of the slaughter of the young heroes.
The mysterious beauty ...
Hélène Femme fatale and eternal beauty,
enigmatic, impassive as the statue of Fate,
cold as perfect beauties are …

Helen, a simple instrument of fate.

Musée Gustave Moreau, Paris
Helen victim, villain
or
the femme fatale, a woman who seduces men to their deaths ?
Helen did not lead men to their deaths. Aphrodite did. Athena did. Paris did. Menelaus did.
But Helen? Helen, like most people in these Ancient Greek dramas, was merely a pawn of the gods to use in their war.
The Iliad is a good representation, not just for Ancient Greece, but also the modern-day world, of how wars often begin.
Not over beautiful women … but over greed and pride.
Though to Paris, Helen was a commodity to which he thought he had a “right” (since Aphrodite “gave” her to him),
Helen was a person who took on pain and blame …
