As a member of the army of Agamemnon, Achilles was a hero of the Trojan war. Because of his heroic bravery he was thought to be the most successful soldier in the Greek army. Achilles annihilated Troy and the surrounding areas, taking 12 cities over a 9-ear period. In the 10th year of the war, a disagreement between Agamemnon and Achilles developed. This animosity resulted in the wrath of Apollo who was said to have wiped out Agamemnon's camp with an outbreak of disease. Eventually, Achilles and Agamemnon reconciled. In a fit of vengeance, Achilles killed Hector and then desecrated his body by dragging it behind his chariot, delivering it to King Priam. However, Achilles met his own demise in battle when he was struck by Paris' arrow, guided by Apollo, which pierced his vulnerable heel.
