Then I will lock her in room underground so she cant marry or have children!
Danae will bear you a grandchild who will grow up to kill you!
After Danae was locked in the room by her father, Zeus felt bad for her and gave her a baby. After her father found out, he put them in a chest and threw them into the sea to either drown or starve. The gods helped again by thickening the wood so that the water around her wouldn't get inside the chest and drown her. She eventually washed up onto an island where a fisherman named Dictys found her and took her to his brother King Polydectes. They made her his servant and they both started to fall in love with her. The king was upset to see her with a baby.
Thank you for saving us!
Let's go to my brother, King Polydectes
Eventually, Danae’s child, Perseus, became a young man. He was very strong and handsome and a leader among the young people of the island. Polydectes gave him many hard tasks and was given a sword made by the god Hermes and a bronze shield given to him by Athena.
Nyeh heh heh!
Perseus killed Medusa and cut off her head. Medusa was a lady with snakes for hair, very sharp teeth, and eyes that were blood red. If you looked at Medusa, you would be turned into stone.Perseus didn't look at Medusa when he killed her so he couldn't be turned into stone.
Ha ha! I have cut off Medusa's head.
Perseus wanted to know more about his grandfather, Acrisios, so he went to Argos, where Acrisios ruled. Once Acrisios heard about Perseus coming to Argos, he fled because he was afraid still because of what Apollo had told him.
Your grandson is coming here to Argos!
Oh no! I gotta get out of here!
While Perseus waited for his Grandfather to return, he went to a festival and entered a discus contest. As he was about to throw it, he lost control of his disc. It went through the crowd and people moved aside, but it hit someone. That someone was Acrisios. What Apollo had told him was true. Perseus had killed his grandfather.
