Okay, no one will know for certain, if the story of the Trojan horse is true or not.
According to how the story goes, the Spartans laid siege to Troy for 10 years, & deciding they'd had too heavy of losses & a defeated morale, decided
they were going to trick the Trojans outside of their splendored walls.
This being in ancient times, people were extremely superstitious, they thought the gods did things for them, or left signs of favor bestowed upon
certain people because the gods were pleased.
The Spartans decided to take advantage of this superstitiousness, & used the majority of their boats, to build a great horse, as a trophy left by the
gods for the Trojan people, of the city of Troy.
The Trojans believing in the divine gods, & that they had favored them, found the horse the next morning, with the Spartans no where to be seen,
little did the Trojans know, but the Spartans used the remaining boats they had & sailed off out of sight of the city & laid in wait til their plan
could come to fruition.
The Trojans brought the great horse to their city, had to actually remove a section of the gate, as they horse was so huge, & then the Trojans partied
all night long, little knowing, the belly of the horse held a vast amount of Spartans troops laying in wait.
The Spartans waited most of the night, til the Trojans fell asleep from the revelling & drinking on their "Victory" over the Spartans & the favor
that was shown upon them by the gods, & when the time came, the Spartans dropped out of the horse, signaled the rest of the Spartan soldiers to come
to the gate. They let them in, & then the slaughtering began.
If I remember the story correctly, they left none alive.
This story, is the reason for the old adage : Never Trust A Greek Bearing Gifts.
