As a child, Helen was kidnapped by the Greek king Theseus, but since she was not old enough to marry, the king sent her to Aphidnae, next to her mother Aethra. But Helen is rescued by her older brother, Dioscuri, who also captures Aethra. When Helen is old enough to marry, all powerful and powerful men in Greece follow her, but considering the troubles of heartbroken groom-to-be, her father, King Tyndareos, listens to Odysseus, and everyone who comes to want her daughter swears to protect her marriage and happiness, no matter whom Helen chooses. Later, the king decides on Menelaus, and Helen marries him and gives him a daughter named Hermione.
However, after a ten-year happy marriage, Helen escapes one night with the Trojan prince Paris.
