This city is governed by King Priam, whose sons are Princes Hector and Paris. It is precisely the latter who arouses the ire of the King of Sparta, Menelaus, by stealing his wife, the dazzling Helena. Menelaus complains to his brother, King Agamemnon, who has influence over all Greek cities except Troy. At first hesitant to start a war, Agamemnon ends up gathering warriors from all over Greece to attack Troy. Throughout the episode, we discovered that all this intrigue is armed by the goddesses Aphrodite, Hera and Athena, as a result of the dispute to know which one is the most beautiful.
