You want to know what really slays me? “Troy is fated to fall.” It didn’t matter what Hector did or how hard he fought. It didn’t matter how fiercely he loved his family: Paris, Andromache, Priam… or how dedicated and loyal he was to his country and his countrymen. Troy was fated to fall and that is the sad and heartwrenching truth. They never stood a chance. Not against the Greeks, not against the Gods and not against Achilles.
