Homer’s story was set in 1180 BC. when Troy was a prosperous city and viewed with envy by its malevolent neighbors. The battle for the city lasted about 10 years.

The long, arduous war might have lasted even longer had it not been for the Greek Kluge. As a sign of reconciliation, a giant wooden horse was offered to the enemy as a gift.
