One night, Europa dreamed of two continents, which had taken the forms of women,aurguring over her. Asia maintained that since Europa had been born in Asia, she belonged to her. the other continent,which was nameless,said that her birth was not important and that Zeus would give Europa to her.
Europa woke up frightened, wondering if it was all a prophecy or all a nightmare.
She decided to go out with her friends.Zeus decided to act, he turned himself into a bull.
All the girls wanted to ride the magnificent bull.
Europa realized this bull was no ordinary bull, but instead most certainly a god. Zeus revealed that she was correct, and told her he was taking her to Crete, where she would bear him many sons.
As Zeus had said, they went to Crete. The seasons, the gatekeepers of Olympus,arrayed Europa for her marriage.Her sons were famous this world and the next. Two of them,Minos and Rhadamanthus,were made judges of the dead and rewarded for their justice. However, Europa's name remains the best known of all.
