In Greek mythology, at the wedding of Peleus and Thetis, Eris dropped an Apple of Eden into the proceedings as a prize for beauty. This led Hera, Athena and Aphrodite to compete, calling on the Trojan prince Paris to judge. Upon being promised Helen of Sparta, Paris named Aphrodite the most beautiful. Paris' kidnapping of Helen soon led to the Trojan War. Later, people falsely believed that Eris started the war with her guiles, rather than the powerful artifact.
