Troy is an ancient city in Asia Minor (the City of the citadel of Turkey Now), known for its fame through the legends of the early Greeks, also called "Today." The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has its place on the list of the UN.
And Troy is an ancient historical city located in the Anatolian region, this city flourished in the third millennium BC. The story of the wooden Trojan horse in which the Spartan soldiers hid and infiltrated at night to open the gates of the city to the armies of King Minaos, the king of Sparta, led by his brother Ajammenon, who besieged the impenetrable city for some time, almost ten years, and could not be dropped except by deception.
The Iliad and Odyssey, two his epic attributed to the Greek poet Homer (Homer), as well as the epic by the Roman poet Virgil, tell a story about Troy, which may only be very limited. The city was named after the Alos, its legendary founder, and the Gears of the Alos father.
A big city was ruled by King Briam. He recounts that Paris, the king's son, ruled in a beauty competition between the Greek idol (Hera, Athens and Aphrodite), and chose to win Aphrodite as she promised to marry him the most beautiful woman in the world.
After this competition, Paris visited Menelaus, the king of Sparta, and fell in love with his wife Helen, who had been known as the most beautiful woman in the world. It was the main cause of the Trojan War, in which Greece defeated the city of Troy.
Paris took Helen with him to Troy, which angered Menelaus. The people of the Greeks, whom Homer calls "Akhyin", swore revenge on Paris and the people of Troy. Thus a campaign was launched, led by the Menelaus ' brother, Agammenon, and joined by both Pattabiraman (Achilles) and Odysseus, (Ulysses as in Latin) and many other Greek heroes. Details of the war
The Greeks besieged the Trojan for ten years, but failed to seize the city, which was fortified with high stone walls. Finally, Odysseus ordered the workers to make a huge wooden horse, in which a number of Greek soldiers hid inside, while the rest of the Greeks pretended to sail away, leaving the horse standing outside the city walls.
The horse raised the curiosity of the Trojan and dragged him into the city, despite the warnings of the Trojan priest to them not to do so. That night, the Greek soldiers sneaked out of the horse's Hollow and opened the gates of the city in front of the rest of the Greek forces, to enter Troy. The Greeks thus carried out a massacre of the people of Troy, looted and burnt the city. Ignace, the champion of the catapult of Virgil, along with a few trojan, survived this massacre while Paris was killed in this war and Helen returned to Menelaus.
Except for these legends, what is known about the history of little Trojan, archaeologists know that the Trojan was founded in the Early Bronze Age, which began in Asia Minor about 3000 BC.
