The Trojan War :

Homer was the god who wrote three famous poems…the Illiad, the Oddessy and the Beowulf. The Illiad was the story of the Trojan War. Here's how the Trojan War went. Helen, Clytemnestra's sister, was married to Menelaus. A while later, Menelaus went hunting and Paris from Troy came and took Helen away. Agamemnon heard the news and was furious. So, he got together troops and set off to Troy to get Helen back. But, they couldn't sail out of the bay...the wind held them back. So they had to sacrifice a maiden. Agamemnon sacrificed Iphigenia, his daughter. Clytemnestra, Agamemnon's wife, was NOT happy, for Iphigenia was her favorite daughter. Clytemnestra set out to murder Agamemnon, but it was too late. He was already on his way out to Troy. During the war, Hector had killed Achilles' best friend. Achilles was FURIOUS. So Achilles dragged Hector in a circle 3 times by his hair and gave killed him. Then Agamemnon came back and married to beautiful princess Cassandra. Clytemnestra had even more reason to kill Agamemnon now. So, she killed Cassandra and then took her husband's live. Orestus and Electra, Clytemnestra and Agamemnon's other two children, then killed their mother for killing their father. After the war, Odysseus set out on a journey and killed Achilles.
