What did Helen of troy look like?
Homer described Helen of Troy (in Greek, Ἑλένη, Helénē) as "white-armed, long-robed and richly-tressed." True to her reputation she was an otherworldly beauty that men and women alike found breathtaking. Being a Mediterranean woman she likely had pale olive skin. She was also tall and regal, possessing silken dark tresses (not blond as is commonly assumed) and had a slender figure with full hips. Her face was smooth, symmetrical and unblemished, though it was her playful hazel eyes and her knowing smile that truly captivated people. Helen was proud and intimidating, yet at times was compassionate as well. To get a true sense of her beauty, think of a young Elizabeth Taylor mixed with a heady dose of Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie.

Helen of Troy's siblings were six; Castor, Clytemnestra, Timandra, Phoebe, Philonoe, and Pollux.
Troy was on fire.
She went back to Sparta. Some stories say she remained the Queen, and others say she was killed.
Helen was called Helen of Troy because she was taken to Troy(a city) by Paris. She was also called Helen of Sparta because she was born there and was queen. Hope I helped!
She is the daughter of Zeus and the queen of Sparta. The famous Trojan War was fought over her love. After the war her husband was Menelaus of Argos.
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.
Yes! she was a greek godesses and, was daughter of Zeus and Leda and was wife of King Menelaue. Her sibling were Castor, Polydeuces, and Clytemnestra.
HELEN ADAMS KELLER was born with blue eyes and blonde hair. She was very pretty even after she went blind and deaf and mute from something called Acute Congestion of the S…tomach and Brain in February of 1882. Once she went blind, her eyes rolled back, leaving lots of what the old Helen looked like behind. Helen now had dirty dresses, that she let no one but herself touch. She detested having baths, therfore her parents felt sorry for her and then they let her have her own way. she was nearly always dirty until Anne Sullivan taught her to be independent and clean herself. If you're not satisfied with the description above: The World at Her Fingertips by J. Dash. or, The Story of My Life by Helen Keller, herself. Just look up "Helen Keller" on google images and you'll see.

Helen of Troy is known as "The face that launched a thousand ships," which is referring to her being kidnapped, thus starting the Trojan war. Truly, she didn't really do anyth…ing during the war. She was captured, the battle was won, and she was taken back home.
The abduction of Helen of Sparta by Paris of Troy sparked the 10 year long Trojan War, a war fought between the Greeks and the Trojans that involved the heroes Achilles, Ajax,… etc. According to legend, Helen was half human/half immortal being the daughter of Leda Queen of Sparta and the god Zeus. She was said to be the most beautiful woman in the ancient world and was courted by thousands of suitors before her abduction. To read more about Helen, visit the Related Link.

Yes. she was a Greek demigoddess and was a daughter of Zeus and Leda. She was wife of King Menelaus. Her siblings were Castor, Polydeuces, and Clytemnestra. Later, Paris, help…ed by Aphrodite, abducted her to Troy. After that she was Helen of Troy. Other than the Homeric tale and later tales which may or may not have come from an earlier tradition, there is no evidence that Helen ever existed.
There are very few sources that mention the death of Helen. Click the link below, and you will find two authors who tell about this. According to the one Zeus… made her a goddess (=immortal). According to the other she was hanged from a tree in Rhodes.
