Paris is located in the north of France at the heart of theIle-de-France region. It sits on the Siene River. It is the capitalof France and the most populous city there.
Answer . Paris was a younger son of Priam, King of Troy, who won from Aphrodite the right to choose the most beautiful woman in the world. As a result, he eloped with Helen, wife of King menelaus of Sparta, took her home (where she became Helen of Troy) and started the Trojan war.. In the war he… killed Achilles with an arrow and was himself killed by Philoctetes (MORE)
Achilles did not kill Paris at Troy. Paris was killed by Philoctetes, son of King Poeas of Meliboea in Thessaly. Like Paris, he was a famed archer and a strong warrior. He was chosen to be one of the Greek warriors hidden inside the Trojan Horse.
Actually she was quite old,since she was first abducted and kept in Afidnes by Theseus,and Theseus lived in the ages of Hercules.Hercules conquered Troy years before the next battle.This means that Helen was about the age of Hecuba,the mother of Paris.She was just a pretext to start the big war and …possibly she wasn't even pretty.The myth of her divine beauty is spread just to justify the conquer. (MORE)
When Paris heard about Helen, he decided to go to see her. Then they fell in love, and Paris stole Helen. When Menelaus heard about it, he collected all of Helen's lovers, and sailed the ships to Troy. They made a deal with Agamemnon, that they are going to fight together, and if they win, Menelaus …is going to get Helen, and Agamemnon- Troy. (MORE)

Paris, a name story. Paris - the city of love, the capital of France, a major travel destination. But why is it called Paris? A history lesson The Parisii people were a Gallic tribe who inhabited the area from around 250 BC. Officially, Paris was called Lutetia Parisiorum, or Lutetia for short (af…ter "Lutetia of the Parisii"). In 52 BC, Julius Ceasar conquered the 'city' - which was actually then a fishing village on the Ãle de la CitÃ©. Under the Romans, it spread out across the river bank, becoming more and more important during the reigns of later emperors. The name of the city was also altered to LutÃ¨ce. The city reclaimed its original identity (as being related to the Parisii) by calling itself "Paris" towards the end of the Roman occupation. The Frankish king Clovis I sealed the city's fame and importance by establishing Paris as his capital in the year 508. It is worth noting that the name for the Parisii tribe is derived from the Celtic Gallic word parisio, meaning "the working people" or "the craftsmen." Other names for Paris Like so many major cities, Paris enjoys multiple nicknames, its most famous being "La Ville-LumiÃ¨re" (meaning, "The Light City" but popularly translated as "The City of Lights" or "The City of Light"). The nickname is deserved because of its fame as a center of education and ideas - as well as Paris' early adoption of, well, street lighting. In the early 20th century, a trend began in which Paris is called Paname , a slang name that has become popular with young people in recent years. More Paris trivia Paris' inhabitants are known in English as "Parisians" and in French as Parisiens . Parisians are often pejoratively called Parigots (term first used in 1900 by those living outside the Paris region, but now the term may be considered endearing by Parisians themselves). (MORE)
Paris is a place in France it could also be a name and also a character from romeo and Juliet!!!!!!!!!!!!
Troy! But this story isn't true though. Its a myth. But in Homer's story he was born in Troy. fhgjfhm
Paris of Troy is a mythological character. And the War of Troy is a legend told in Homer's Iliad. No time reference is given by Homer. But Troy is a city that had existed.
Some legends say that Paris forcibly abducted Helen; others that she fell in love with him and went willingly. In one peculiar account, originating in Stesichorus and used by Euripides, Helen was rescued by Proteus in Egypt, who substituted in her stead a phantom that sailed to Troy with Paris. Prot…eus then cared for Helen until Menelaus finally claimed her. In the Iliad and Odyssey, Helen becomes Paris' wife but is in sympathy with the Greeks. She is easily reconciled with Menelaus after the war, and they return to a peaceful life at Sparta. (MORE)
Paris is named after the Gaulish tribe of the Parisii who lived there at the time of the roman conquest.
It was actually Helen of Sparta, not Troy, who went with Paris of Troy, leaving Sparta, her husband and daughter, and everything she was behind. She didn't actually become Helen of Troy until such time as she was welcomed into Trojan society as a Princess of Troy. Helen of Sparta, wife of King Me…nelaus of Sparta, wasn't actually kidnapped by Paris, a Prince of Troy. Helen had been promised to him by the Greek goddess Aphrodite, whom Paris had claimed was the most beautiful of all the goddesses. Naturally, like most women, this pissed of the other goddesses, Athena and Hera. Paris went to Sparta during a period when Menelaus was absent from Sparta for a funeral. True to her word, as Aphrodite had promised, Helen fell in love with him and willingly left Menelaus and Sparta behind, along with Hermione, their 9 year old daughter (bet you didn't know where the name Hermione came from). At this point there are conflicting testaments as to whether or not Paris and Helen actually went to Troy; some accounts have them going to Egypt, where upon learning what they had done, seized all the treasure that Paris had taken, including Helen, and waited for Menelaus to show up and reclaim his wife and gold. By this time, Menelaus was home in Sparta, had been informed that his wife had dumped him for Orlando Bloom, and left him a lot poorer and with a kid to boot. He was not a happy camper. Having promised Menelaus that they would stand by him should Helen ever be abducted again (she had already been taken before, once when she was only 12) her former suitors, who became the Greek heroes of the Trojan War. After getting to Troy and demanding the return of Helen and his loot, as stated previously, some accounts had Helen and Paris in Egypt, so when the Greeks showed up on the Trojan beach, King Priam of Troy (Paris' Dad) and Prince Hector (Paris' brother, and hero of Troy) told Menelaus, Odysseus, Ajax, Achilles, and all the other Greeks who had shown up for the war that they had been suckered - Paris and Helen weren't there at Troy, but had in fact eloped to sunny Egypt for a few quiet years while things "died down" a bit. Well, things died of course - the Trojan War lasted 10 years, the Greeks unable to penetrate the high, steep walls that had kept them from getting inside the city. At that period in history, there were no great siege machines of war, Trebuchets, Catapults, or anything for breaching battlements. After 10 years, the Greeks got tired of not winning every day, and losing their friends all the time, not to mention the deployment time away from Greece. 10 years is a long deployment. Sitting around the campfire on the beach one night, Odysseus comes up with a brilliant plan - let's build a wooden horse, hide a bunch of us inside, and send everyone else away. The Trojans just might be dumb enough to bring it inside the city to offer it to Poseidon at their temple, to rob us of OUR offering to Poseidon on the beach for a safe journey back to Greece. So the Greek fleet sails just out of eyeball range, and leaves the wooden, hollow horse offering thingy on the beach with a lot of stinky Greek dudes inside. Not only is it cramped, it's also hot as hell, and they can't make a sound or move for fear of being discovered by the Trojans. And we won't even discuss what they did to relieve themselves during that period. Anyway, you know the rest - the Trojans fell for the stupid trick, and dragged the horse into the city, partied all night and got falling down drunk. At which point by that time, the Greek ships had sailed back, and Odysseus, Achilles, and the rest of the Greek gang had slithered out of the horse and signaled their buddies on the beach that the Trojans had fallen for it, and that the gate was open. In other words, they signaled "Time to Rape, Pillage, and Plunder." (MORE)
Prince Paris of Troy was a mortal man picked by Zeus to judge on the fairest of the goddesses Aphrodite, Athena, and Hera. In order to bribe him, Athena offered him all the knowledge in the world for picking her, Hera offered to him the position of ruler of the world, and Aphrodite offered him the m…ost beautiful woman in the world - Helen of Sparta. Being young and foolish, Paris picked Aphrodite, and that night, he kidnapped Helen of Sparta and secreted her away to Troy. This infuriated the Greeks and they immediately set upon attacking Troy.

The Parisi tribe of the ancient Celts settled on the isle in the first millennium BC, before the Romans took over. Their ancient place of worship was found under the parvis of Notre Dame during construction/excavation work in the 1980s.
Helen, queen of Sparta, was kidnapped by Paris, prince of Troy, as part of a deal that Paris made with Aphrodite, goddess of love. For more info, look up the story 'The Judgement of Paris'.
He seems to have been a not very good warrior. He killed Achilles, but the tradition says his arrow was guided by Apollo.
No, she was apparently conceived in Paris or that's where they were when Debbie found out she was expecting.
Paris is played by Orlando Bloom. In the movie Paris has curly, bushy black hair with a thin shadow mustache and beard. He is average height( 5'7"-6'0" ). In Homer's Iliad he is blonde with a full beard and his hair is short and straight. He is very tall.
In the Trojan war he duels with Menelaus, then wounds Diomedes, at last kills Achilles with an arrow from behind.
You can do lots of things in Paris , for example: - Visit or take a look at the Eiffel Tower . - Visit l'Arc de Triomphe (Triumph Arc) . - Visit the Louvre Museum . - Go to Disneyland Paris .
He is one of the princes of troy, who, by the help of Aphrodite, trickes Helena, the queen of Sparta, into being his lover in Troy.
According to myth, Priam was told by the Delphic oracle that his son Paris would bring disaster upon Troy, hence, he had him sent away to be raised by sheep herders, where the movie gets it wrong is that Paris did not grow up a Prince, and the reason he could not fight is because he never received a… Prince's education which included martial arts. If the movie was an attempt at historical theory, it failed with Paris; wimpy or no, all ancient princes were taught how to use weapons, if anything, the character Paris should have at least been somewhat competent. In the myth, it is explained he can't fight, because he never learned how, and he could only use a bow and arrow because it was the required tools of a sheepherder meaning he had very good aim from a lifetime of its use, that is why he was able to hit Achille's heel from such a long distance although, the myth says "his arrow was guided by Apollo."

Well, Helen was kidnapped from Sparta and brought to Troy by Paris, so that was the only reason.
Large deposits of gypsum were to be found just north of Paris. These were used to produce the fine white decorative plasterwork of the best houses in France. Interest was generated abroad in this new material and it became a general term for gypsum plaster. Prestia Lafage still mine and produce Plas…ter of Paris at Meriel just north of Paris. Whilst in the UK the best deposits are to be found at Newark in Nottinghamshire, currently mined by Saint Gobain Formula (formerly British Gypsum) New technology has made it possible to produce Plaster of Paris by using an Autoclave instead of in open pans. The plaster produced in this way forms longer crystals resulting in a substantially harder and denser material known as an alpha plaster. This is blended with the normal (beta) plasters to produce many different products of varying strength and porosity. But these many products are all still Plaster of Paris (MORE)
The full names of Paris, Menelaus, and Helen are just Paris,Menelaus, and Helen. Family/last names were not usually used inAncient Greek times.
His parents were King Priam of Troy and Queen Hecuba; it was foretold that he would cause the ruin of Troy, so he was abandoned on Mount Ida.
Paris was initially called Lutetia Parisiorum (Lutetia of the Parisii), by the Romans after the inhabitants the Parisii. Sometime in the 4th century this name was changed to Paris .
It is unknown exactly what Paris looked like, but I imagine that he wasn't bad-looking ;)
the plaster is named 'de Paris' because the raw material came from the gypsum quarries in the Seine valley near Paris (for example around Triel sur Seine west of Paris).
Athena? If you are referring to when Paris was Judging the beauty of the goddesses Aphrodite, Hera and Athena for the golden apple inscribed 'for the fairest'?
The Iliad, which tells of the beginning and of the Trojan War. The accompanying epic is the Odyssey, which tells of Odysseus' journey home to Athens after the war.
Paris is named afted the Gaulish tribe of the Parisii who lived there at the time of the roman conquest.
Yes. He is the son of King Priam and Queen Hecuba. But because he was predicted to be the cause of Troy's demise, they abandoned him on Mount Ida. There, he lived as a simple shepherd and a nymph named Oenones. fell in love with him. Later, after winning athletic competitions, Paris was re-recognize…d as Priam's son. (MORE)
Yes, Aphrodite had made her fall in love with Paris - Helen, having been made infatuated by Aphrodite, was all too willing to forget her husband Menelaus and go off with Paris.
Paris managed to kill Achilles, the great warrior, by wounding his heel with an arrow. Achilles' heel was his only mortal point on his invulnerable body, which is where the saying 'Achilles' heel' comes from.
The event of Paris kidnapping Helen of Sparta (or Troy, whichever you prefer) is part of a supposedly fictional story, so therefore there is no evidence. Not only that, but if it did happen, it was thousands of years ago, so if there was any evidence, it's probably gone by now.
Well, she wasn't really kidnapped as such, you see her and Paris ran away together, because you see, Somehow, a golden apple, fell into Paris' hands. But you see, the goddesses Anthena, Hera and Aphrodite, all wanted the apple. And so Athena offered all the wisdom in the world. Hera offered to b…e king of all Asia. And Aphrodite offered for the most beautiful woman on earth to be his wife. Paris took up Aphrodite's offer and gave her the apple, and Aphrodite cast a spell so that the most beautiful woman would fall head over heels in love with Paris. And this woman of course was Helen of Troy. So that's why they ran away together and started the whole Trojan War. (MORE)
Because Aphrodite granted Paris marriage to the most beautiful woman in the world and that was Helen. Eros shot his arrow and Helen was smitten and left her husband Melaus king of Sparta for Paris prince of Troy.
Paris was killed during the Trojan war. Helen was won and taken back to Menelaus in Sparta.
No - the Greeks were furious that Helen had been kidnapped and brought to their enemy's land, Troy, so they attacked Troy.
Paris is served by three international airports. These include Charles de Gaulle, which is the major hub airport to the northeast of the city; Orly International Airport, which is the city's oldest airport used mainly by Air France for domestic departures and international departures by European car…riers; and Beauvais, a smaller regional airport that is used by some low-cost carriers. Paris is also home to Le Bourget Airport. Le Bourget is considered the most important business airport in Europe. (MORE)
The Iliad says yes. It should be noted, however, that the only reason that she did is because Aphrodite forced her to. She was the promised gift for Paris awarding the Golden Apple of Discord to Aphrodite. It wouldn't have made much of a gift if the woman didn't want him too.
No. It is named after the Gaulish tribe of the Parisii which lived here two thousand years ago.
He's the one who was asked to award the Golden Apple, he's the one who spirited away Helen of Sparta, and he's the one who shot the arrow that killed Achilles.
Paris was the son of Priam and Hecuba. Before his birth Priam had a dream in which he foresaw that Paris would bring Troy to destruction so he gave him to a slave Agelaus to expose him on Mr Ida. It appears that a bear nursed him for five days. Then he was found by a shepherd who brought him up as h…is son. There maybe a different account of this in Helen of Troy. Anyway hope that this assists someway. (MORE)
It seems that before the Romans came there was a tribe called Parisii at this location
