Once Prince Theseus, who was King Aegeus's son, heard this, he immediately galloped like a race horse to his father and wanted to put an end to this madness. Bright and early the next morning, Prince Theseus set off on his quest to find and kill the minotaur. his father ran down to where the boat was and called out, "Son, the sails are black, but if you succeed you must put a white sail on."
With a bump, the boat landed on the sand. Up ahead there was a princess - a beautiful, stunning princess. Her name was Princess Ariadne. That night Princess Ariadne wrote a note to Theseus about her great beauty and to make a deal. The deal was if the Princess helped the Prince slay the horrible beast, he would promise to take her away with him so that others could admire her. So Prince Theseus agreed. The next morning, Theseus met the Princess outside the Labyrinth where she was waiting for him with a ball of string and a sword.
The next thing you knew, Prince Theseus stepped into the maze and there in front of him was the beast! The minotaur was furious...he wanted revenge. Prince Theseus destroyed the beast and sailed back to Athens. On the way, he dropped Princess Ariadne off on a small island...after all...a deal's a deal.
