Along time ago, before Perseuc's birth, his grandfather, Acrisios, the king of Argos, was given a prophecytaht he would someday be killed by his grandson. So one day Acrisios locked his daughter in a dungeon, to prevent her from marrying and having children of her own so that he would never have grand children
Your highness, I have been given the honor to tell you that you will onE day be killed by your grandson
YOU CANT BE SERIOUS!!!!
Zeus had fallen in love with the stunning Danae and because of that he had turned himself into golden rain and poured through the bronze bars in the roof of her elaborate dungeon. As the rain dropped upon she, the magical power gave her a child. Nine months later a baby named Perseus was born.
NOOOOO!!!! FATHER PLEASE
My precious life is more important then YOU!!!!!
When the outraged and frightened Acrisios learned of his grandson's birth, he enclosed mother and son in a chest, which he flung into the sea. After drifting far, the chest finally washed up on a distant island. A fisherman found it and brought it to his brother, King Polydectes, who took Perceus and him mother into his palace.
When Perseus grew up , Polydectes gave him many difficult challenges and one of the was to slew the dreaded monster Medusa.
I WILL DEFET YOU!!!
WE'LL SEE ABOUT THAT LITTLE BOY!!!!
After successfully slewing Medusa, Perseus began to think about his grandfather, so after a brief visit to his mother, he set sail to Arogos. Before Perseus reached it however, Acrisios had been told the his long lost grandson was coming to visit him he fled the city, because he still faered the prophecy.
My grandfather must be out there somewhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!
While Perseus waited for his grandfather to return, he entered a ddiscus contest. As he prepared to throw, he lost control and the heavy disk went hurtling into the crowd ,striking a man and killing him. Alas the prophecy has been proven true for the man was Perseus's grandfather.
