Definitions for "Eris"
IC] — Goddess of discord.
Olympian minor goddess of strife (and sister to Ares) whose uninvited attendance at the wedding of Thetis and Peleus effectively brought about the Trojan War. The Olympians had attended en-masse and although Eris was the only one not to be invited she did so anyway. She proceeded to throw a golden apple on to the table inscribed for 'the fairest' which was then quarelled over by Hera, Athena and Aphrodite. Zeus decided that Paris, son of Priam (the king of Troy) was to settle the argument but in choosing Aphrodite and her bribe to give him the most beautiful woman, Paris sealed the fate of his own city. Menelaus, king of Sparta and his brother Agamemnon, king of Argos and their troops laid siege to Troy for ten years to return Helen to her husband, the Spartan king.
the goddess of discord; daughter of Zeus and Hera; Eris is involved in every quarrel, feud and disagreement; her eternal and unforgiving rage was the cause of fear and respect on Olympus, though despised by the Olympians they dared not confront her; though she rode into battle with her brother and companion, Aries, she was more generally known for the less deadly forms of conflict; political strife, personal contention, rivalry and wrangling; she is often confused with the Roman goddess, Discordia.
