Some stories say Helen went willingly, seduced by Paris's charms.

Others claim that Paris kidnapped her and took her by force.

When they finally arrived in Sparta, the couple lived happily, although by some accounts, Menelaus remained suspicious of Helen's feelings and loyalty.

Among those seeking to marry Helen was Odysseus*, the king of Ithaca.

Odysseus advised Tyndareus to have all the suitors take an oath to accept Helen's choice and promise to support that person whenever the need should arise.

At first she was given refuge on Rhodes by Polyxo, the widow of Tlepolemus, one of the Greek leaders who had died in the Trojan War.

Later, however, Polyxo had Helen hanged to avenge the death of her husband.
