Helen of Troy and Paris

Helen, the most beautiful woman who had ever lived. The woman who ran off with Paris of Troy the affair that launched a thousand warships from all of Greece to try and bring her back. Paris, the handsome bounder who stole her away and in doing so brought destruction on his father's kingdom...

That's the myth and I don't want to rain on any parades but Paris actually made off with the Mycenenen treasury as well as taking Helen and that was a lot of money which was probably the real reason why a thousand ships were launched. But the love angle makes a much better story.

By all accounts Paris was one hell of a good looking boy with a tendency towards medallion man but Helen was besotted and most accounts state that she ran off and wasn't abducted.
