Because if we don't send them King minos will start a war we will not win. They go as food for minotaur.
Father,why do these young people go to Crete each year and never return?
Good luck. Remember to change your sails to white .
Father,i will go and kill the minotaur!
Good luck Theseus! Here is a ball of string so you can find your way out,
King Minos demanded that every year king Aegeus of Athens send seven young woman and men to Crete each year as food for the minotaur. They will have to go though the maze with the mintoaur in the middle. The king's son-Thesues wonders why they send these people each year.
How lucky I am! I will soon marry a handsome prince!
She isn't pretty. I don't want to get married to her.
Theseus decided to go to Crete along with the other 6 men and 7 women. King Aegeus gives him white sails and tells him to change the black sails to white if he passes.
go get some fruit and wayer,meet you back in a second!
Theseus has failed and died!
They arrived and Theseus went first. As he walked in the king's daughter Ariadne handed him a ball of string so he can find his way out.
Theseus kills the Minotaur. Ariadne begs him to take her back to Athens and he agrees. However,when Ariande wants to marry him,he didn't want to.
So when they arrived he asked Ariande to go collect food and water while he quickly sails away.
In a hurry to get away from the island,Theseus forgot to change the sails to white. King Aegeus saw and thought that Theseus had failed and jumped off the cliff.
