Mention the Trojan War, and what may first come to mind is the oft-told tale of Helen, wife of Sparta’s King Menelaus and possessor of a divinely bestowed beauty, falling in love with Paris of Troy. Their supposed affair and her subsequent abduction from Sparta sparked a 10-year Greek siege of Troy that would shape Greek civilization for centuries to come — at least according to Greek mythology.
