On the website Mythweb.com Aphrodite was the goddess of love, beauty and fertility. She was also a protector of sailors.The poet Hesiod said that Aphrodite was born from sea-foam. Homer, on the other hand, said that she was the daughter of Zeus and Dione. Aphrodite was one of the most important roles in the Trojan War. She protected her son and some of the sailors during this war.
Aeneas (Aphrodite's Son)
Aeneas is the main reason that Aphrodite had problems with Helen.
Helen is the that Aphrodite had problems with throughout the Trojan War.
Apollo is the person who save Aeneas life and took the problems with Aeneas and Aphrodite away.
On Joel Skidmore's Mythweb.com it mentions,"The Greek hero Diomedes, who had been on the verge of killing Aeneas, attacked the goddess herself, wounding her on the wrist with his spear and causing the ichor to flow”(Skidmore).
This shows that because Aeneas caused trouble for Aphrodite because while Diomedes tried to kill him his mother tried to protect him and ended up getting wounded, which led to Helen which caused even more problems in the Trojan War.
To conclude Aphrodite is the most significant because if it wasn’t for her the Trojan war wouldn't be told the same.
