Helen's brains and beauty pass a needed legacy to our times.
Her city fought for its existence but lost. In its flames, her friend and husband, Paris, lay dead and her dreams shattered. But, the gods had willed that Helen must live and attend the raw wounds of her first husband, Menelaus, King of Sparta. He was a causality of the fighting. Menelaus used guile to gain entry to the city... past the impassable walls of Troy but became unlucky as he emerged from the wooden horse.
Helen arrests her fears and heartbreak then patiently takes a new look at her once scorned Spartan King. He truly loves her and because of that love she changes her destiny.
Not long after King Menelaus is able, they leave Egypt, where he had received medical attention, and journey to Sparta. However, the couple must move on again. As new possibilities emerge, Helen, becomes an educator, doctor, and finally a monarch in a new land. Her handling of important responsibilities outshines her radiant beauty, and she helps to establish a model empire that is rivaled only by the major powers of the old world.
Even voyages into the unknown seas to the West, those which cling to the edge of the world plus indian gold play into this epic adventure... a story relating to the last half of Helen's life.
Did Helen give us the true meaning of the word “civilization”...perhaps you can guess, even get to know?
