The Minotaur Monster

The Minotaur Monster
– One of the oldest and most well-known of the Greek myths

The Minotaur was kept prisoner in a maze in the palace at Knossos on Crete.

Mini Taurus tells: ”My family comes from the Ancient Greece”.

”One of the oldest and most well-known myths, is the story about the maze in the huge palace at Knossos, on the Greek island of Crete, where the monstrous Minotaur was kept prisoner. The story took place thousands of years ago”.

The Minotaur was half bull and half human. He ate people.

You can read the story about The Minotaur Monster, the son of the king (and the hero) Theseus, who killed the Minotaur, and princess Ariadne, who helped Theseus to find his way out of the maze. See the menu “Mascot & Myths”, “Greek Myths & Legends”.

In that menu, you can also read more about the ancient Greek gods and some of the other ancient Greek myths/legends (= fairytales).

”You may already know the Disney cartoon about Hercules?
In this cartoon, they tell some of the old stories from those days”.

“Remember that the stories took place many thousand years ago”.

Have a good time!

“Daedalos designed it

King Minos built it
Asterion the Minotaur guarded it
Ariadne unravelled it
Theseus solved it
Thera destroyed it

Arthur Evans couldn’t find it.”

Can you figure out what “it” is?
