Helen of Troy (and Paris)
That’s right, folks: Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were the legendary figures that started the Trojan War. Now, I’m sure that they probably had intermediary lives that were less well known, but the key for me is Richard’s Ascendant being located at (circa) 4800 BC, and both his and Liz’ placements of Pluto bracketing that time frame.
Her beauty inspired artists of all times to represent her, frequently as the personification of ideal human beauty. Images of Helen start appearing in the 7th century BC. In classical Greece, her abduction by Paris—or escape with him—was a popular motif. In medieval illustrations, this event was frequently portrayed as a seduction, whereas in Renaissance paintings it was usually depicted as a “rape” (i. e. abduction) by Paris. Christopher Marlowe‘s lines from his tragedy Doctor Faustus (1604) are frequently cited: “Was this the face that launched a thousand ships / And burnt the topless towers of Ilium?”Wikipedia
But don’t take my word for it. See for yourself.
Talk about art imitating life!
