  • Posideon, you are NOT the father.
  • King Aegeus of Athens secretly married Princess Aethra. They had a son together, whose name was Theseus. However, Aethra acted as if his father was Poseiden, to protect the child.
  • On Theseus' 14th birthday, his mother asked him to move a large rock. He did as she asked and it revealed a sword and pair of sandals which belonged to his father.
  • Theseus' mother asked him to take them to his dad in Athens. On his journey he fought many monsters such as a giant, a wild sow, and a wicked innkeeper.
  • King Aegeus had gotten remarried to a witch named Medea. She tried to poison Theseus. His fathers nephews also tried to ambush him, but he killed them all.
  • He was sent as one of the 7 boys and 7 girls to be eaten by the Menotaur. He prayed to the goddess Aphrodite. She listened and made Menos's daughter fall in love with him. She gave him a magic ball of thread which would help him defeat the Menotaur.
  • He killed the Menotaur in its' sleep, and sailed back until he beached on Naxos, where the god Dionysus said he wanted to marry Menos's daughter. Theseus complied. One day Peirithous convinced him to travel to Hades to ask for Persephone as a wife. They were tricked and doomed to stay there forever.
