I need a son!!! My brothers family shall not rule!!
Do not open the mouth of your wineskin until you return home to Athens
King Aegeus of Athens was worried about the future of his kingdom, he had no son to inherit the throne but his brother, Pallas, had 50 sons
Aegeus traveled to the oracle of Apollo at Delphi and asked her how he could have a son, he did not understand her prophecy so therefore, he went to ask King Pitteus(One of the wisest men of his time) to explain its meaning
King Aegeus was tricked and was taken advantage of which caused him to sleep with his daughter Aethra
I have made this travel safe again for my people.
KIng Aegeus secretly hid a sword and a pair of sandals in the hollow beneath a huge rock. When his future son grows strong enough, he will be able to obtain his fathers gifts(Aegeus)
When Theseus grew older,and when he obtained the sword from his father, he killed the wild huge offspring of a monster. He was recognized for this noble deed as a hero in his time.
In his countless travels and adventures, Theseus made travel safe between Troezen and Athens. He had earned fame and honor. Now he was ready for King Aegeus to acknowledge him as the lawful heir to the throne of Athens
