Minotaur is a mythical creature, half man, half bull. Minotaur was born after the refusal of King Minos to sacrifice a particular bull to Poseidon. Poseidon, as a punishment, made Pasiphe (Minos's wife) fall in love with the bull, giving birth to the Minotaur. The Minotaur was enclosed in his Labyrinth, situated in Knossos. King Minos, had a certain liking for the creature and hold the belief that his reign will prosper as long as the creature lives. A chamber was built inside the Labyrinth, to captivate mercenaries, traitors and people attempting to invade the royal palace, only to be feed to the Minotaur. According to King Minos, the creature must be fed with human flesh, each day.
