Myth of Helen

Helen was the fairest woman of the world. Leda , a mortal, was her mother and Zeus , who came to Leda in the guise of a swan , was her father. Tyndareus , the King of Sparta, was her mother's husband. Helen was the sister of Castor and Pollux. She was so beautiful that all the princes of Greece wanted to marry her. It became a dangerous problem for Tyndareus. He asked all the princes to come to an agreement that all of them would protect Helen and her would be husband, whomever she would choose, if and any necessary. All of them agreed upon the condition. Helen selected Menelaus as her husband. Later, when Paris abducted Helen to Troy, all the princes of Greece fought against Trojans to recover Helen.
