The 'Iliad' is the story of a few days' fighting in the tenth year of the legendary war between the Greeks and the Trojans, which broke out when Paris, son of King Priam of Troy, abducted Helen, wife of King Menelaus of Sparta. After a quarrel between the Greek commander, Agamemnon, and the greatest of the Greek warriors, Achilles, the gods became more closely involved in the action. Their intervention led to the tragic death of Hector, the Trojan leader, and to the final defeat of the Trojans.
