Summary After the Greek victory in the Trojan War, all the Trojan warriors and princes are slain and the women and children are left to be divided among the conquerors. Beautiful Cassandra is betrothed against her will and despite her vanishing sanity. Andromache discovers that her son is to be executed to end her royal bloodline. Helen desperately wields the arrogant beauty that leveled a city as she pleads for her life. In the end, it is the enduring dignity and unfaltering strength of Hecuba, widowed queen of Troy, that makes cowards of Troy's captors.
