Trojan waters and offer a wooden Horse of Troy as a gift to the winners. -Helen of Troy (1956) Throughout time, men have waged war, Some for power, corner for glory, some tort honor-?and some tort love. In ancient Greece, the passion of two of history’s most legendary lovers-?Paris, prince of Troy and Helen, Queen of Sparta–ignites a war that will devastate a civilization. When Paris steals Helen away from her husband, King Menelaus, it is an insult that cannot be suffered.

Familial pride dictates that an affront to Menelaus is an affront to his brother Agamemnon, rueful King of the Mycenaean, vivo soon unites all the massive tribes of Greece to steal Helen back from Troy in defense of his brother’s honor. In truth, Agamemnon pursuit of honor is corrupted by his overwhelming greed– he needs control of Troy to ensure the supremacy of his already vast empire. The walled city, under the leadership Of King Prim and defended by mighty Prince Hector, is a citadel that no army has been able to breach.

One man alone stands as the key to victory or defeat over Troy-?Achilles, believed to be the iratest warrior alive. Arrogant, rebellious and seemingly invincible, Achilles has no allegiance to anyone or anything save his own glory. It is his insatiable hunger for eternal renown that leads him to attack the gates of Troy under Agamemnon banner.. But it will be love that ultimately decides his fate. Two worlds will go to war for honor and power.
