The Minotaur was a cannibal monster with the body of a man and the head of a bull. His real name was Asterion.
The Minotaur was created by Pasiphae, the wife of King Minos, when she mated with a bull sent to her by Poseidon.
According to one myth, King Minos, following a prophecy he received from the Oracle of Delphi, commissioned the craftsman Daedalus to create a building in which to enclose the Minotaur. So Daedalus built the Labyrinth, a colossal palace that was impossible to enter.
