The Trojan War between Troy and the city-states of Greece; the Greeks ultimately prevailed.
Mycenae versus Troy.The Trojans lost.Hard to claim that the Mycenaeans won given how things turned out (Achilles dead, Agamemnon murdered when he arrived home [which led to disaster for his whole house], Big Ajax commits suicide, Odysseus spends 10 years trying to get home, most of the rest of the army gets shipwrecked and/or dies at sea, ...).Menalaus and Helen did okay.-Mark Roulo
The Trojan War.Helen's was the face that launched a 1,000 ships.While some say that the Greeks won, you could make the argument that in the end, the Trojans won. Romulus & Remus were sons of Aeneas who escaped from the fall of Troy. Romulus founded Rome, which went on to subjugate Greece for over 400 years. Had Aeneas not been forced to flee, Greece may have maintained more freedom through history.
Unit of beauty: one "helen" is the amount of beauty needed to launch 1000 ships. One milli-helen is the beauty required to launch one ship.
It is said that Helen had beauty that launched 1,000 ships. Therefore, simple math tells us that a milli-Helen is the amount of beauty required to launch 1 ship.Bonus: A decadent is equal to 3 and 1/3 tridents.chicopanther
