Helen | Greek Mythology

Helen (Helen of Sparta and then Helen of Troy) was the daughter of Zeus and Leda. She was the wife of Menelaus, the king of Sparta.

Helen was seduced by the Trojan prince Paris, and was abducted by him and taken to Troy. This event launched the Trojan War, in which Menelaus, with great help from his brother Agamemnon, laid siege to the city of Troy.
