Hermes the Thief


Since victors write the history, Helen has been conveniently blamed for Troy's destruction. But from the perspective of the vanquished, Helen is blameless, and we should restore her honor.

Troy's destruction was a function of internal strife between cousins, a feud that spanned three generations which included a curse on the heads of Pelops and his children.

The blame for failing to secure the Mediterranean from outside invaders was not due to a reckless love-struck girl. The blame lies at the feet of feuding clans.
