"Your daughter will bear a son that will one day kill you."
Why did you bring me bad news?! Off with your head!
King Acrisius wanted to lock his daughter away in a tower because he didn't want her to have a son because the son would try and overthrow him.
The messenger had brought back bad news and king Acrisius was not content so he beheaded him.
His first thought was to kill both the mother and the child but then he thought she must be under special protection. King Acrisius ordered that Danae and the baby be taken from the prison and put in a wooden boat without sails, without oars, and without food or water.
You can stay at my castle for as long as you need too!
They were provided water by the light rain that was falling and also provided food by a gull dropping a fish onto the boat.
The day after they washed up on the shore, a Fisherman was caught off guard to see a young beautiful lady and a baby on the island.
King Polydectes had never seen such a beautiful girl and a baby before that he had offered her a place in her castle.
