Aphrodite, the goddess of love, promised Helena to Paris, the son of King Priamos of Troy, because he had chosen by her to her most beautiful of goddesses to donate the Golden Apple of discord. During the absence of Menelaos from Sparta, convinced Paris Helena to go with him to Troy to flee. Agamemnon, the brother of Meneloas, led the expedition against Troy to get back to Helena. This started the Trojan war in which Paris was killed. All millennia is Helena the symbol for beauty and at the same time, a reminder of the devastation that can bring about beauty.
