Trojan War is Greek mythology war between the Greeks and people of Troy. "The Trojan War probably reflected a real war (c.1200 B.C.) between the invading Greeks and the people of Troas, possibly over control of trade through the Dardanelles". It began after Paris abducted Helen. The Trojan War ended when the Greeks defeated Troy using a large wooden horse. The hollow wooden horse helped the Greeks gain entry inside the city walls of Troy.
Paris is the Trojan prince. Helen is the wife of Menelaus of Sparta.
In Greek mythology, the Trojan War was waged against the city of Troy by the Achaeans (Greeks) after Paris of Troy took Helen from her husband Menelaus, king of Sparta
"Plato tells us that in his time many believed that Homer was the educator of all Greece. Since then, Homer’s influence has spread far beyond the frontiers of Hellas [Greece]." Homer’s real life may remain a mystery, but the very real impact of his works continues to illuminate our world today.
