In Greek history, the original minotaur was killed by a famous hero.

The name of the hero was Theseus.

The story says that at that time, the people of Greece had to sacrifice 7 young men and 7 young women to the minotaur.

If they did not do this, they would be punished by the minotaur or get a terrible disease.

The minotaur needed the sacrificed people for food.

But the people did not want to be sacrificed.

Theseus said he would fight the minotaur and stop the sacrifices.

When he entered the maze to fight the minotaur, he used some string.

The string could help him find the way out after he killed the minotaur.

When Theseus found the minotaur, he and his army had a  great battle.

Theseus finally killed the minotaur with a deadly sword from his father.

Then, Theseus followed the string  and left the maze.

But, Theseus made a mistake when he returned home by ship.

He told his father that if he killed the minotaur, he would use a white flag on the ship.
