There, he arranged the liaison between Pasiphaë and the Cretan Bull that resulted in the Minotaur. At the order of King Minos, he built the Minotaur's labyrinth. The Minotaur lived on Crete; he was the son of Pasiphae, the Queen, and a bull, so he was half-man, half-bull. Minos, the king of Crete, kept the Minotaur hidden in a labyrinth built by Daedalus.
