Theseus and the Minotaur pt.2
i forgot to put mentor in the first one so i put it in this one
Theseus wanted to become as great a hero as the famous Hercules, and Theseus always had Hercules in his mind, trying to become as great a hero as Hercules. This was quite natural considering that Hercules and Theseus were cousins.
It wasn't long before he came across the Minotaur; the Minotaur was sleeping. Theseus jumped on the creature and pinned him to the ground. Then, Theseus proceeded to batter the beast to death.
he had killed the minotaur
Once the Minotaur was dead, he got up and found his ball of thread. Theseus instructed the other people out of the maze while following the ball of thread that guided the way.
Theseus forgot to put out the white sail to show his success in Crete. It was either that he forgot to hoist the sail or that he was filled with grief over the death of Ariadne that he failed to put it out. As a result of his failure to hoist the white sail, when King Aegeus saw the black sail at the Acropolis he assumed that his son had died. He was so filled with grief that he jumped off from a rocky cliff into the sea and was killed. The sea into which he jumped was then, and still is known as the Aegean Sea.
Theseus was made the King of Greece but he didn't want to be the king because he felt that a people's government where everyone would be equal would be better suited for Greece. He resigned his power and organized a commonwealth, building a council hall where the citizens would gather and vote. Theseus did keep the title of Commander in Chief of Greece.
