A Minotaur is a mythical creature from Greek mythology that has the body of a man and the head and tail of a bull.

The word "Minotaur" comes from the name of King Minos of Crete and the Greek word for bull, "tauros".

The Minotaur was the offspring of Minos's wife, Pasiphae, and a white bull that was sent by the god Poseidon.

Minos did not sacrifice the bull to Poseidon as he was supposed to, so Poseidon made Pasiphae fall in love with the bull.

She gave birth to the Minotaur, which was named Asterion.

The Minotaur grew up to be a violent and hungry beast that needed human flesh to survive.

Minos ordered the inventor Daedalus to build a huge maze called the Labyrinth to imprison the Minotaur.

Every nine years, Minos demanded that seven young men and seven young women from Athens be sent to the Labyrinth as a tribute to be devoured by the Minotaur.

This was a punishment for the death of Minos's son, Androgeos, who was killed by the Athenians.

The hero Theseus volunteered to be one of the tributes and managed to kill the Minotaur with the help of Minos's daughter, Ariadne, who fell in love with him.

She gave him a ball of thread to find his way out of the Labyrinth.

Theseus escaped with Ariadne and ended the terror of the Minotaur.
