What shall I do about Pereus
Perseus grew to be fearless and very strong. He was very adventurous and he enjoyed swimming and hunting.

Bring me the finest horse you can find. 50 of them

I do not jest, I will bring you the head of Medusa, or you can take my own. Promises are sacred to me This is a pact of blood, Polydectes
King Polydectes, who was very in love with the beautiful Danae watched Peresues grow up with great envy and displeasure. He wanted to get rid of Perseus because he was worried that Perseus would marry Danae . He came up with a sly plan on tricking Perseus. He would have everyone know he was going to marry another princess and everyone had to bring a gift for the bride.
King Polydectes had called in all the noble men and made them bring a Stallions 50 in total . All the noble men had promised I'm a horse except Perseus. Perseus was living off of the king and had nothing of his own.The king had known that Perseus's pride would mean he would do something drastic which was the whole point of the fake Marriage gift.
Perseus had decided to do a grand deed for the king since he had done so much for him and his mother. So he wanted to give him the head of Medusa like as of the one his mother had talked about in her stories. this made the King happy because he knew that Perseus would most likely die trying to pursue this quest.
