Long ago, King Minos of Crete's son was killed at the Athens Games as he was too good at his sport. Every nine years (to avenge the killing), 14 young Athenian girls and boys are sent to his palace and put in the labyrinth as a sacrifice to the Minotaur.
Theseus meets Ariadne
take this ball of string and sword
The mean Minotaur, who is half man, half bull, lives in the Labyrinth under King Minos's Palace in Crete. This pitch-black maze, built by Daedalus, is impossible to find your way out of.
Theseus orders his Dad, King Aegeus, to send him to kill the Minotaur. Before Theseus fights the Minotaur he has to sail across the sea to Crete. There might be some stormy weather but it looks good for him.
The Fight till Death
Theseus arrived in Crete and was thrown into a prison cell. Ariadne, King Minos's daughter followed and gave Theseus a ball of string and a sword to help him kill the Minotaur and find his way out of the labyrinth. In return, she wanted to escape with him.
The Minotaur is waiting for Theseus to come so he can eat him. Theseus unties the ball of string and makes his way to the Beast.
