    Eris , the goddess of discord was the daughter of Nyx and Erebus.

    Sowing discord among the goddesses was her forte.

    In a beauty competition among Hera, Athena and Aphrodite; she sow discord among the three goddesses giving the reward of a golden apple for the most beautiful. Subsequently, Aphrodite won the golden apple.

    As a result , the Trojan war started.

    Another source stated that in the beauty competition; Paris was asked to select the most beautiful among the three beauties ....Aphrodite was the preferred choice ! Thus, the Trojan war started.

    Two sources of the tales for you to think about.

    Eris brought miseries to gods,goddesses and mortals alike.

    People would not want to worship her !
