The Trojan War is one of the most famous wars in history. It is well known for the 10-year
duration, for the heroism of a number of legendary characters, and for the Trojan horse. What may not
be familiar, however, is the story of how the war began.

According to Greek myth, the strife between the Trojans and the Greeks started at the wedding
of Peleus, King of Thessaly, and Thetis, a sea nymph. All of the gods and goddesses had been invited
to the wedding celebration in Troy except Eris, goddess of discord. She had been omitted from the
guest list because her presence always embroiled mortals and immortals alike in conflict.

To take revenge on those who had slighted her, Eris decided to cause a skirmish. Into the
middle of the banquet hall, she threw a golden apple marked "for the most beautiful." All of the
goddesses began to haggle over who should possess it. The gods and goddesses reached a
stalemate when the choice was narrowed to Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite. Someone was needed to
settle the controversy by picking a winner. The job eventually fell to Paris, son of King Priam of Troy,
who was said to be a good judge of beauty. Paris did not have an easy job. Each goddess, eager to
win the golden apple, tried aggressively to bribe him.

"I'll grant you vast kingdoms to rule," promised Hera. "Vast kingdoms are nothing in
comparison with my gift," contradicted Athena. "Choose me and I'll see that you win victory and fame
in war." Aphrodite outdid her adversaries, however. She won the golden apple by offering Helen,
daughter of Zeus and the most beautiful mortal in the land, to Paris. Paris, anxious to claim Helen, set
off for Sparta in Greece.

Although Paris learned that Helen was married, he nevertheless accepted the hospitality of her
husband, King Menelaus of Sparta. Therefore, Menelaus was outraged for a number of reasons when
Paris departed, taking Helen and much of the king's wealth back to Troy. Menelaus collected his loyal
forces and set sail for Troy to begin the war to reclaim Helen.

30. Eris was known for _________ both mortals and immortals.
A. scheming against B. creating conflict amongst C. feeling hostile toward D. ignoring
31. Which of the following words would best complete this sentence: Each goddess tried ______ to bribe
Paris.

32. What did Aphrodite promise to Paris?
A. She promised vast kingdom to rule.
B. She promised victory and fame in war.
C. She promised the most beautiful mortal.
E. She promised all the promises of Hera and Athena.
Who was tasked to choose the most beautiful goddess?
A. Menelaus B. Paris C. Priam D. Zeus

secure and fearless-so, all my misfortunes
began in midst of universal woe.

Love found me all disarmed and found the way
