I just learned that Paris was exposed as a baby (left outside to die).

How did he survive? If he was exposed, why did the Trojans accept him back as their prince?

1 Answer 1


Paris survived with Agelais help on the Gargarus by the mountain Ida. He returned to Troy when Trojans prepared games with bulls, and won.

Source-Robert Graves,The Greek myths,chapter 159.,Paris and Helena.
