In Greek mythology, the Minotaur is a monster of Crete with the body of a man and the head of a bull. The name minotaur is derived from the Greek words "Minos bull". It lived in a labyrinth, a large maze-like construction built for King Minos of Crete especially to house the bull. The Minotaur was the offspring of Pasiphaë, wife of King Minos, and a snow-white bull sent by Poseidon and intended for sacrifice. When Minos kept it instead, the god punished him by making his wife fall in love with the bull. The Minotaur was imprisoned in the Labyrinth built by Daedalus. After defeating Athens in a war, Minos forced the Athenians to send human tribute to be devoured by the Minotaur. When tributes were sent during the third year, Theseus volunteered to go, and with the help of Ariadne he killed the monster.

I græsk mytologi er Minotaur et monster af Kreta med liget af en mand og leder af en tyr. Navnet minotaur er afledt af græske ord "Minos bull". Det levede i en labyrint, en stor labyrint-lignende konstruktion bygget for Kong Minos Kretas især til at huse tyren. Minotaur var afkom af Pasiphae, hustru til Kong Minos, og en Snehvid bull sendt af Poseidon og beregnet til offer. Da Minos holdt det i stedet, straffet Gud ham ved at gøre hans kone falder i kærlighed med tyren. Minotaur var fængslet i labyrinten bygget af Daedalus. Efter at have besejret Athen i en krig, tvunget Minos athenerne at sende menneskelige hyldest til at blive fortæret af Minotaur. Når hyldester blev sendt i løbet af det tredje år, Theseus meldte sig frivilligt til at gå, og ved hjælp af Ariadne han dræbte uhyret.
