Who was Theseus? The child who did not know his father was the god Poseidon. The boy who built himself into a youth of superhuman strength and lifted a huge rock to take a sword – a weapon left there for him by the king of distant Athens who had married and then left his mother. The young man who set out on foot to meet this king for the first time, killing robbers and monsters on his way. The prince of Athens who slew the bull-headed monster called the Minotaur and rescued the city's young people from the cruel tribute imposed by Minos, king of Crete. The man who owed his throne to a tragic oversight but became the wisest and best-loved of all the city's rulers. The king who married an Amazon princess, only to lose her fighting at his side. A reckless fool who dared to go down to  the underworld to steal its ruler's wife for his best friend. A tragic father who begged Poseidon to kill his only son and then discovered, too late, that the young man was innocent of the crime a false queen had accused him of. A king who was overthrown and murdered but would be remembered by Athenians as their greatest ruler – the man who first gave that city the benefits of prosperity, justice and good government.

With 20 original illustrations by the acclaimed Greek artist Yannis Stephanidis.
