What an epic story! The consequences that occur from a petty rivarly between two Goddesses cannot be ignored! The King of the Trojans judged Venus more beautiful than Juno. So, naturally, Juno gets pissed and condemns the Trojans. Greeks sack Troy and the survivors are forced on a perilous journey to reestablish themselves. Of course, Juno can't have that so she makes trouble. Arising from Trojan ashes is the benevolent and courageous Aeneas, son of Venus, to lead the Trojans along the way. After loads of bloody battles and divine intervention, Aeneas finally succeeds and founds Lavinium, which will eventually become Rome. A must read!
