Troia War

One of the greatest episodes even within Greek mythology.

In order to bring down Troia City in minor Asia, various countries of Greece formed an allied force under the command of Agamemnon, the king of Mycenae. They crossed over the sea in a great expedition.

Not only there were legendary heroes including the hero Achilles fighting each other, even the gods of Olympus were taking part in the war in the fierce fighting.

What put an end to the prolonged battle was the Trojan Horse.

It was the plan that was hatched by that famous hero, Odysseus.

City of Troia

This city was also called Ilios. It was extremely prosperous.

The king who ruled it descended from Zeus.

An archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann who believed in Troia’s existence invested his private funds and set out to discover the city, and achieved a great success that went down in history.

The confrontation of the gods

The defending Troia force and the attacking Greece force, both sides were supported by the gods. Assisting the force of Greece were the goddess of wisdom and war Athena, the god of sea Poseidon, and the chief god Zeus’s wife Hera.

On the other hand, god of sun Apollo, god of war Ares, and god of beauty and love Aphrodite supported the force of Troia.

The chief god Zeus didn’t support any side, he was watching over both factions equally──.
