The paper discusses how Troilus has fallen victim to the treachery of love that often diverts him from realizing the greater importance in the role at the battle for Troy. The paper explains that with his role being central to the leadership of the battle, he is a tragic hero because he then takes his own life because of his love for Criseyde. The paper highlights that he is a mighty and strong warrior, and his fall from grace reveals a weakness for romantic relationships that define the tragic circumstances of his death.
