The Fall of Troy By Aaliyah the Armadillo Nicole the Nightingale Sydney the Seahorse
The Fall of Troy Once Hector died, Achilles knew his death was near. Achilles killed the Prince of Ethiopia, Memnon. Memnon was the son of the Goddess of Dawn. Apollo helped guide Paris’s arrow to Achilles’s heel. Achilles died.
The Fall of Troy Achilles’s body was burned. Odysseus and Ajax were decided to be most worthy of wicked arms made by Hephaestus (arms as in armor, perhaps). Odysseus received the arms. Ajax strongly believed that Agamemnon and Menelaus turned the votes against him.
The Fall of Troy Ajax felt guilty after killing many animals so he committed suicide; his death was not honored. Diomedes and Neoptolemus succeeded in stealing Hercules’s bow and arrow. The Greeks wanted to surprise attack the Trojans so they created a giant, wooden horse. The Trojans fell for the Greeks’ trick.
The Fall of Troy Sinon fooled the Trojans into bringing the horse to the temple of Athena. Once all of Troy was asleep, the Greeks came out of the horse and started fires in the city’s buildings. By the time the Trojans were ready to attack, the city of Troy was on the verge of being demolished. It was very vicious and malevolent between the Trojans and the Greeks.
The Fall of Troy Andromache sacrificed her son, Astyanax. The soldiers threw him from the walls of Troy. Troy’s last sacrifice was the death of Hector’s son.
