A mythological love: Achilles and Penthesilea

Achilles and Penthesilea

This love story is dated back to Troy war epic. Amazon queen Penthesilea joined the Troy war as an alien of Troy. She was good at fighting so everyone paid attention to this warrior but they didn’t know that this warrior was a female warrior. She got so famous that Achilles wanted to fight with her.

Finally he got the chance to fight with her. Achilles won the struggle but when he saw the queen, he fell in love with her. It was too late for him.
