What did Helen of troy look like?
Homer described Helen of Troy (in Greek, Ἑλένη, Helénē) as "white-armed, long-robed and richly-tressed." True to her reputation she was an otherworldly beauty that men and women alike found breathtaking. Being a Mediterranean woman she likely had pale olive skin. She was also tall and regal, possessing silken dark tresses (not blond as is commonly assumed) and had a slender figure with full hips. Her face was smooth, symmetrical and unblemished, though it was her playful hazel eyes and her knowing smile that truly captivated people. Helen was proud and intimidating, yet at times was compassionate as well. To get a true sense of her beauty, think of a young Elizabeth Taylor mixed with a heady dose of Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie.

She is the daughter of Zeus and the queen of Sparta. The famous Trojan War was fought over her love. After the war her husband was Menelaus of Argos.
HELEN ADAMS KELLER was born with blue eyes and blonde hair. She was very pretty even after she went blind and deaf and mute from something called Acute Congestion of the S…tomach and Brain in February of 1882. Once she went blind, her eyes rolled back, leaving lots of what the old Helen looked like behind. Helen now had dirty dresses, that she let no one but herself touch. She detested having baths, therfore her parents felt sorry for her and then they let her have her own way. she was nearly always dirty until Anne Sullivan taught her to be independent and clean herself. If you're not satisfied with the description above: The World at Her Fingertips by J. Dash. or, The Story of My Life by Helen Keller, herself. Just look up "Helen Keller" on google images and you'll see.
Yes. she was a Greek demigoddess and was a daughter of Zeus and Leda. She was wife of King Menelaus. Her siblings were Castor, Polydeuces, and Clytemnestra. Later, Paris, help…ed by Aphrodite, abducted her to Troy. After that she was Helen of Troy. Other than the Homeric tale and later tales which may or may not have come from an earlier tradition, there is no evidence that Helen ever existed.

Troy was on fire.
She was queen of Sparta, but taken to Troy by the Trojan Prince Paris.
No: Helen of Troy was the daughter of Zeus and Leda, Queen of Sparta, wife of Menelaus.
Helen of Troy, was the woman who is believed to have started/caused the Trojan War because 2 men were madly in love with her, so an ENTIRE war was fought over her.
I'm not sure you understand why Helen was in Troy in the first place. In the myth, she was abducted by Aphrodite and given to Paris as a bride because she promised him the mos…t beautiful woman in the world in exchange for his awarding her the Golden Apple. In truth, I think the movie "Troy" captures what is a more likely event: Paris was younger, and likely much more desirable than was Menelaus, King of Sparta. Even though Sparta of the Bronze Age is nothing like the Classical Sparta we think of, Helen had no choice in who she married, so running off with the young Trojan Prince would have been something a spirited young woman might do. So, as you see, her "deserving" had nothing to do with it.
Helen of Troy had curly blond hair and blue eyes.
Helen of Troy is known as "The face that launched a thousand ships," which is referring to her being kidnapped, thus starting the Trojan war. Truly, she didn't really do anyth…ing during the war. She was captured, the battle was won, and she was taken back home.

because she cheated on her husband with the prince of troy.
Helen was called Helen of Troy because she was taken to Troy(a city) by Paris. She was also called Helen of Sparta because she was born there and was queen. Hope I helped!
The land of try is best known for witnessing the Trojan war. The battle was fought between the Greeks and the Troy after Paris of Troy help Helen of Sparta elope with him to T…roy.
