The King of Troy was the ruler of the city of Troy. He was defeated, and the city's entire population killed, by Odysseus and the Greek army.


After the Trojan War had been going on for ten years with the city continuously under siege, Odysseus devised a plan to end the siege and win the war. With a large wooden statue of a horse in tow, he knocked on the city gates. When the King of Troy answered, Odysseus said he thought he could speak for all the Greeks when he said the war had gone on for too long. The King of Troy agreed, replying, "I'll say! I'd really like to go out and get the mail", and gesturing at an overflowing mailbox.

Odysseus continued, "Over torture, one of your soldiers mentioned that you collect giant wooden animals. We hope you don't have a horse!" He then gestured behind him at the horse he had brought. The King of Troy glanced at the collection in his castle's courtyard, which already had a couple of horses, and affably said, "Well, I don't have one from you. Bring it in!" At this command, the Trojan soldiers opened the gates and pulled the horse into the city. That night, while everyone was sleeping, the Greek soldiers came out from inside the horse (where they had been hiding) and killed everyone in the city of Troy. The next morning, Odysseus altered the "City of Troy" sign outside the gates, changing the population figure from 12,801 to zero.
