Once upon a time there was a Queen, who lived with her husband, King Minos. The God, Zeus ordered the Queen to produce a baby with a Bull. The baby was born as a Minotaur, half bull half man. .
King Minos was so embarrassed about the Minotaur that he put him underneath the city in a huge labyrinth.
King Minos put all his enemies in this labyrinth so that the Minotaur could devour them.
a few years later
Son of Minos, Androgeus, went to Athens to participate to the Panathenaic Games, but he was killed during the Marathon by the very same bull that impregnated his mother Pasiphae, the Queen
HELP!!! HE KILLED ME.
King Minos was super angry, and demanded Aegeus the King of Athens to send seven men and women each year to the Minotaur to stop the plague caused by the death of Androgeus.
every one in!!!!!
Please don't do this.
The third year, Theseus, son of Aegeus, King of Athens decided to be one of the seven young men that would go to Crete, in order to kill the Minotaur and end the human sacrifices to the monster. King Aegeus tried to make him change his mind but Theseus was determined to slay the Minotaur.
Theseus announced to King Minos that he was going to kill the Monster, but King Minos knew that even if he did manage to kill the Minotaur, Theseus would never be able to exit the Labyrinth.
Theseus met Princess Ariadne, daughter of King Minos, who fell madly in love with him and decided to help Theseus. She gave him a thread and told him to unravel it as he would penetrate deeper and deeper into the Labyrinth, so that he knows the way out after he kills the monster.
Theseus followed her suggestion and entered the labyrinth with the thread. Theseus managed to kill the Minotaur and save the Athenians, and with Ariadne’s thread he managed to retrace his way out.
Theseus took Princess Ariadne with him and left Crete sailing happily back to Athens.
