Greeks and Trojans engaged in a war for the beautiful Helen. For many years they fought until a wooden horse put an end to the famous Trojan War that Homer counted.
The Trojan War
A long time ago the first war that was the Trojan War suced happened. Greeks and Trojans clashed overHelena , the most beautiful woman in the world. Helena was Greek, but a Trojan prince fell in love with her and took her to Troy. Some say that the Trojan prince kidnapped her, while others say that it was Helena who wanted to go to Troy.That nobody will know. What we do know is that then the famous Trojan war began. The Greeks gathered all their ships that were more than a thousand and sailed to Troy thinking that they could enter the city in a few days and take back to Helena. But none of that, because the
Trojans were brave warriors and they did not make it easy for the Greeks . Thus they were fighting for 10 long years.Greeks and Trojans were longing for the war to end, but none won the victory. If the Greeks managed to enter the city, then they won the war and Helena returned home. But if they did not succeed, Helena stayed in Troy. What happened in the end? It happened that the Greeks always get what they propose because they never lose hope and fight until the end. It was Ulysses who came up with the great idea and thanks to him they managed to enter the city.
The wooden horse
Ulysses and the rest of the Greeks built a
huge wooden horse without the Trojans noticing. The horse had a trick because they made a hole in the horse's belly and there many warriors got into it. Then they left the horse with the belly full of Greeks at the entrance to Troy. The Trojans thought that the Greeks had surrendered and gone home, but that was not the case. There they were all hiding in the horse's belly. Thinking that the horse was
a gift of the Greeks to the gods, the Trojans put that enormous wooden construction in the city. And when everyone in Troy celebrated the supposed victory, the Greeks took advantage of their cluelessness to get out of the wooden horse's belly and recover Helena. And with this trick of the ingenious Ulysses was how the Greeks won the Trojan War. Laura Vélez.
