alarge group ofsoldiers


Paris, the prince of Troy (a city in what is now Turkey), falls in love with Helen, the beautiful queen of Sparta ( a city in ancient Greece). He kidnaps her and takes her to Troy. The king of Sparta sends an army to Troy to bring her back. The war lasts for ten years and there are many heroes. Neither side can overcome the other.

Then one of the Spartan leaders thinks of a trick, He builds a great wooden horse and hides soldiers inside its hollow belly. The Spartans then sail away. The Trojans are delighted and bring the horse into the city to offer to the goddess Athena. That night, the Spartans secretly sail back. The soldiers creep out of the horse and let the Spartan army into the city. The Spartans capture and destroy Troy, and Helen returns to Sparta.
