Alexandros (Paris) was the son of King Priam of Troy and his wife Hecuba. Because it was prophesied that he would bring the end and destruction of Troy, he was left to die in the wilderness. But Alexandros was found by another man, who took him as a son and named him Paris.
During a beauty contest among goddesses, Aphrodite promised him Helen, the most beautiful woman in the world, who was already married to Menelaus. Paris used a trick to take Helen with him to Troy, which was the reason for the Trojan War.
