Theseus legend

Theseus, in Greek mythology, hero of Athens; son of either King Aegeus or Poseidon.
At this time, the Athenians, who had been at war with King Minos of Crete, were forced by him to send every year seven youths and seven young women as a tribute to the Minotaur.

Theseus was numbered among those who were to be sent as the third tribute to the beast. But when he came to Crete, Minos’s daughter Ariadne fell in love with him, and having obtained the secret to the Labyrinth from its constructor Daedalus, she disclosed the way out to Theseus.

In the last part of the Labyrinth, Theseus found the Minotaur and killed him, and since he had been instructed by Ariadne, who had offered to help him if he would agree to carry her away to Athens and have her to wife, he found his way out.

They both fled from Crete, but on arriving to Naxos (one of the Cyclades islands) Theseus deserted her.
