The Trojan Horse wiki last edited by Hailinel on 06/12/13 08:47PM View full history

Overview

The Trojan Horse was a tool devised by the Greek army to invade the city of Troy and bring an end to the Trojan War.  Legend has it that the horse was built  to house a number of Greek troops inside.  Once it was completed and the troops were hidden, the Greek army pretended to leave, and the Trojans were fooled into taking the horse into the city.  The shape of a horse was chosen due to the animal's symbolic importance to the Trojans.

After night fell, the Greek soldiers hidden inside poured out of their hiding place and opened the gates for the waiting Greek army.  The Greeks then laid waste to the city of Troy, sealing their victory in the war.
