Daedalus, a prominent Greek inventor, settled in Crete among King Minos' court. Queen Pasiphaë, who had an all-consuming passion for a white bull, called upon his services. The Sea God Poseidon had given the bull to her husband King Minos as a present, and King Minos had refused to sacrifice it for him. To take his revenge, Poseidon cast a spell on the poor Pasiphaë. Following orders, Daedalus found a solution to enable the queen to mate with the animal. Their union produced the Minotaur, a monster that King Minos shut away in a labyrinth built by Daedalus. Unfortunately, when King Minos found out that Daedalus had helped the young Theseus to find a way out of the labyrinth, he shut Daedalus and his son Icarus inside it. The shrewd Daedalus found a way to escape - but his method put his own son's life in peril.
