Mythology: How Was the Trojan War Caused?

                           Hello! Here I am, sitting in front of my new laptop typing up this post, sucking on a mango lollipop and doing nothing other than that. Anyway, before I was a complete mythology expert, I wondered why the Trojan War happened. Well, now that I know, I'd like to share it with you. 

           It all began at a wedding, and every Olympian had been invited, except for one: Eris, goddess of discord. In rage that she had not been invited, she rolled a glimmering golden apple down the aisle with a note attached reading," For the most beautiful." Hera, Aphrodite, and Athena all claimed that the apple was for them, and their fight became a contest. Paris, prince of Troy, was to judge. Aphrodite bribed him to declare her the winner by promising him the perfect wife. Paris fell for it.

                      So Aphrodite made him irresistible to Helen, the beautiful wife of Menelaus, King of Sparta, and he kidnapped her late at night. When Menelaus found out, he sent hundreds of Greek warriors to get Helen back...and that's how the Trojan War began!
