Story: Theseus grew up without knowing who his father was; until he was strong enough to lift a huge boulder and see what lay beneath it, he would not know. When at last he rolled the stone aside, Theseus found there a pair of sandals and a beautiful sword. Then he learnt that his father was King of Athens and set out in search of him. On his way, he had many adventures, meeting Sinis, the pine-bender, and Skiron, the brigand who threw his victims to an enormous sea-turtle, and narrowly escaping death in the famous bed-which every traveller was made to fit! He became a hero to his father's people, killing the fire-breathing bull of Marathon and also the terrible Minotaur, which roamed the labyrinth beneath the palace of Minos, in Crete. When his father died, Theseus ruled wisely as King of Athens and married Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, after having defeated her in battle
