Troy, Troy VII is the city assumed to be Priam's capital

Troy (named also Ilion, or Illium) was a city located in Asia Minor. The city of Greek myth was based on a real city. The city itself was an impenetrable fortress that may have been a match for armies even now. Two main walls stood 150 feet high and 50 feet thick. The Greeks never penetrated the wall until their infamous horse maneuver.

Troy was ransacked and destroyed by the Greeks before they left. They took all the women as concubines and killed every man, regardless of age; Neoptolemus hurled Hector’s two year old son, Astyanax, from the top of the city wall.
