Ménélas (in Greek old Μενέλαος / Menélaos , “capacity of the people”) is one of the Greek heroes of the Trojan War and the king of Sparte. Wire of Atrée and Érope, young brother of Agamemnon, he is the husband of Helene, that Pâris removes towards Troy, thus involving the forwarding of the Greek chiefs to take it again.
Ménélas holds well its role in the combat around the body of Patrocle, but it is in general eclipsed by Agamemnon, the chief of the Greek army.
