Helen of Troy was a mythological beautiful
woman whose beauty and desirability resulted in the Trojan War. According to
the story, Helen had numerous suitors but married Menelaus, the Greek king of
Sparta. Paris, a Trojan Prince, desired Helen and abducted her, taking her to
Troy. The story varies as to whether Helen went willingly. Menelaus gathered up
a large number of Greek warriors, putting together a fleet which sailed to Troy
in Asia Minor (modern day Turkey) resulting in a war. The result of the war was
that the Greeks won and Helen was brought back to Sparta.
