Agamemnon demands that the Trojans hand over Helen
You are HERA, the ox-eyed queen of Heaven. On Olympus, meanwhile, your husband/brother Zeus is winding you up. He suggests that the Trojans and Greeks should now make peace. You are seething with rage at this - but Zeus, though he likes the Trojans best, decides to humour you. You can have your way: the Greeks shall sack Troy. You are delighted - and tell him he can destroy one of your favorite cities if he likes!
