Wasn't Elaan "Taming of the Shrew"?
Yes, but she's also a "mail order bride" of sorts. I was going mention she was part of the Shrew Taming trope as well, but decided to let someone else go for that one.
And an inversion of the Trojan war with Elaan/ Helen being taken from Elas/Hellas (The Greeks) to Troyius/Troy to stop the war rather than cause it as in Homer.
