  • King Minos was a powerful king feared by many. He had a castle built for himself with a maze underneath with a terrifying Minotaur in it. Every month 7 men and 7 women had to be sent to feed the Minotaur.

  • Theseus and the others got to Crete where King minos was waiting with his daughter Ariadne. He saw the small crowd and laughed. Suddenly he asked them who was to go first, Theseus instantly stepped forwards and went down to meet the Minotaur

  • In the end Ariadne sailed with them but Theseus left her at an island in the middle of nowhere, because of that he forgot to change the sails so his father thought he was dead when they returned so he killed himself...
