The Story of Perseus and Andromeda
In a land far away.. There once was a king named Acrisius. One day the Oracle of Apollo told the king that his daughter, Danae would give birth to a son that would kill him.
In order to prevent this the king locked the beautiful Danae in a tower and prevented her from ever getting married. Zeus noticed her beauty and decided to give her a child. Later, he went to her room in the tower and in a shower of golden sparkles she became pregnant.
When the king discovered she had given birth, he sent Danae and her son, Perseus out to sea in a barrel.
Danae and Perseus washed ashore on a nearby island. the king noticed her beauty and began pursuing her, however, she rejected his advances. As Perseus grew he protected his mother from the love-struck king. The king became angry and formed a plan to get Perseus out of the picture.
The king pretended he was getting married and threw a party. All the party goers were required to bring a gift, but Perseus and his mother were poor and went to the party without a present. The king told Perseus he would forgive him and his mother if he would bring him the head of Medusa the Gorgon.
