It all began when Daedalus and his son Icarus were in a trapped in a tower because king Minos did not like the actions that Daedalus had created.
Icarus and Daedalus were watching birds all day till suddenly Daedalus came up with this great idea that he should build wings for him and his son.So every feather that fell was added to the wings.
There was one rule that they had to follow. They couldn't go to high to were the sun would melt there wax and they could't go to low to were the got the feathers wet.
Then once they had started Icarus stated to go higher and higher until the sun had started to melt his wax and as that was happening Daedalus had started to cry because he knew what was about to happen.
Splash! Icarus had fell to had fell to his death and there was nothing Daedalus could do his son was dead!
Daedalus buried his sons body on this island.Daedalus had even named the island after Icarus
