Helen of Troy is a character in Homer's classic epic poem, the "Iliad," written in the 8th century about the Trojan War, imagined by the Greeks to have occurred about years earlier. Her story is one of the most dramatic love stories of all time and is said to be one of the main reasons for a year war between the Greeks and Trojans, known as the Trojan War. Hers was the face that launched a thousand ships because of the vast number of warships the Greeks sailed to Troy to retrieve Helen. In the "Iliad," Helen's name is a battle cry, but her story is not told in detail: the "Iliad" is chiefly a man's story of the conflicting passions and struggles of men on opposing sides of a great battle. The Trojan War was central to the early history of ancient Greece. Details of Helen's story are provided in a group of poems known as the "epic cycle" or the "Trojan War Cycle," written in the centuries after Homer.
