The Trojan War is famous in Greek mythology. According to legend, which Greek woman was stolen from her husband Menelaus and taken to Troy by Paris, launching the war?
According to legend, Helen of Troy was the most beautiful woman in the world. Aphrodite, the goddess of love, promised Paris that he could have her as his wife. He took her from her husband Menelaus, and thus began the Trojan War. Historians debate how much evidence there is for war between the two empires, but archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann's discoveries suggest that there is some evidence that war took place.
