Transcript of Greek Gods and Goddesses Project: Daedalus and Icarus

Daedalus and Icarus Daedalus was a famous craftsman, he was known for his works. Icarus is Daedalus' son Icarus There he worked on the court for King Minos and Queen Pasiphae. During this time the Queen became pregnant by Poseidon with the Minotaur. When Daedalus was banished from his home city, for murdering one of his sons, he went to an island called Crete. They tried to leave by sea, but since Minos controlled the sea they had to fly away from the island... To revenge the lost of the Minotaur he decided to lock Daedalus and his son, Icarus, in the maze. Of cource Daedalus knew his way around the maze, since he made it, and got out. But eventually Theseus came from Crete to try to slay the beast. Of which he did succeed at doing with the help of Daedalus, this enraged Minos. When the Minotaur was conceived, Daedalus built a maze to contain the beast. And was to bring him people from the city of Crete. Before leaving Daedalus warned his son not to fly to close to the sun or else the wax on his wing would melt, and he would die. Daedalus came up with the idea of building wings for him and his son. They were made of feathers and wax Pontikis, Nick. "Myth Man's Icarus Homework Help DAEDALUS & ICARUS."
