Helen of Troy, also known as Helen of Sparta, was not born in Turkey, but according to Greek mythology, she was taken to Troy, which is located in modern-day Turkey, by Prince Paris.
As mentioned earlier, Troy is located in the northwestern part of Turkey, near the town of Hisarlik in the Çanakkale province. The ancient city of Troy is believed to have been located on a hill known as Hisarlik, which has been excavated by archaeologists for over a century.
Helen’s story is closely associated with the Trojan War, which is believed to have taken place in and around the city of Troy. It is said that the Trojan War was fought between the Greeks and Trojans over Helen’s abduction by Paris, which ultimately led to the downfall of the city of Troy.
