Paris was the judge of the contest for the Golden Apple between the goddesses Hera, Athena and Aphrodite. He gave it to the latter, who promised him the hand of the most beautiful woman in the world in marriage. That woman was Helen of Sparta, wife of Menelaus, King of Sparta. Paris and his brother Hector were sent in envoy to Sparta to celebrate peace, but Paris and Helen stole away together in the night, giving Menelaus cause to go to his brother Agamemnon and take the Achaeans to war.
