One year, Theseus asked to be sent and, with the help of Minos’s daughter, Ariadne, he killed the Minotaur, saving hundreds of future Athenians. The Death of Aegeus Theseus had told his father that if his quest to kill the Minotaur was successful, he’d change his ship’s sails from black to white on his return.
