The Minotaur was a famous monster in Greek Mythology, the son of Queen Pasiphae of Crete and a white bull. He was imprisoned in the Labyrinth at Crete and fed upon a yearly sacrificial offering of Athenian youths. Eventually, the Minotaur was slain by the Athenian prince Theseus with some help from the Cretan princess Ariadne.
