Helen of Troy and Paris | The Most Inspiring Love Stories That Ended Up in Tragedy

Helen of Troy and Paris

Even before Antony and Cleopatra, there was true, tragic love, mad enough to cause a genocidal war and raze an entire city with all its inhabitants included. Helen was married to King Menelaus, brother of Agamemnon, and Paris was the son of Priam, King of Troy. Paris was promised the most beautiful woman in the world by a goddes.
