Paris of Troy goes to Sparta on a diplomatic mission and falls in love with Helen, the wife of King Menelaus. When lovers flee to Troy, the bloody seeds of a long war, sown by King Agamemnon of Mycenae, finally sprout, so an old prophecy is fulfilled.
Though married to Menelaus, King of Sparta, Helen falls madly in love with the Trojan prince Paris. Together they flee to Troy where Paris’ father, King Priam, gives them safe haven. Bent on bringing Helen back, Menelaus’ ruthless brother, Agamemnon, leads a Greek army toward Troy.
The fleet of a thousand ships arrives on the shores of Troy and so begins the Greek and Trojan battle. After a ten-year siege, the Greeks finally win entrance into the fortified city using the fabled Trojan Horse —a decisive stoke which ultimately determines the fate of two mighty empires.
