    Discord. Jealousy. Pride.

    You know how this happened?

    The gods were having a party and everybody was invited except Eris, the goddess of discord. For her revenge, she cast a beautiful golden apple among the gods which bore the inscription "for the most beautiful".

    Hera, Aphrodite and Athena each claimed it for themselves, and the other goddesses wisely relinquished any claim they might have had. But even so, it was a fight, which of course was exactly what Eris had intended.
