Storyboard Text

  • Jason is sent away to safety
  • Go to Chiron, he will keep you safe
  • We need a prince to sacrifice!
  • Jason returns to take the throne from Pelias
  • Bring back the Golden Fleece and I will hand over the throne.
  • Setting Sail
  • Let's go get the Golden Fleece!
  • Princess Ino parched the seed-corn so there would be no harvest, and told the messenger to say the oracle needed a sacrifice for the crops to grow again in order to kill the kings children, which is shown when the author writes "bribed the messenger to say that the oracle had declared the corn would not grow again unless they offered the young Prince as a sacrifice" (Hamilton 123). Jason's mother then sent him away to Chiron where he would be safe from Ino.
  • The First Stop
  • Pelias usurped the throne from Jason's father, and when Jason got old enough, he returns to take it for himself. However, Pelias wouldn't give Jason the throne back just like that, so he told Jason that if he brings back the Golden Fleece from Colchis he would then get the throne to himself.  Jason's plan is told when the text says "Jason, the rightful heir to the kingdom, had been sent secretly away to a place of safety, and when he was grown he came boldly back to claim the kingdom from his wicket cousin"(Hamilton 124).
  • The Harpies
  • Help!
  • Jason and his crew set up the Argo, and name themselves the Argonauts, which is shown when the author stated "They set sail in the ship Argo"(Hamilton 125). They are on their way to the Golden Fleece.
  • Reaching Colchis
  • The Argonauts' first stop was an island called "Lemnos", which was a "strange island where only women lived"(Hamilton 125). The women welcomed the Argonauts and gave them food, wine, and garments.
  • They then reached an island to find an old man, who was being tormented by Harpies that were taking and spoiling his food. The Boreas' sons saved the man from the Harpies and in exchange he gave this advice: "The way to pass between them, he said, was first to make trial with a dove"(Hamilton 127).
  • Jason and his crew reach Colchis, and greet the king and are welcomed by King Aeetes. However, Mades, Aeetes' daughter sees Jason, and it shot by Cupid's arrow so she falls in love with Jason to help him. King Aeetes tells Jason that he must complete a number of tasks to get the Fleece from him. This is shown when the author writes "I will make the trial, monstrous though it is, even if it is my doom to die"(Hamilton 129).
  • I have come for the Fleece
