In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
Wishing you all the joy of simple pleasures this holiday season. Now that my own Christmas has come and is almost gone, I'm looking forward to having some time to actually write again here. Please be safe and warm and peaceful, wherever you are.
