An unnamed woman is the mother of the minotaur.


According to the Magical Treatise of Solomon, at some point in the past, the woman would play a lullaby with a lute built by Daedalus to the minotaur whenever he would feel enraged, and lull him to sleep.[1]


  • Musician: The woman was able to play the lute beautifully enough to put the enraged Minotaur to sleep.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • In Greek mythology, the queen of the island of Crete, Pasiphaë, is the mother of Asterion (or Asterius, more commonly known to the Greeks as the Minotaur). When her husband King Minos sacrificed a normal bull instead of the white-headed bull bestowed by Poseidon, the enraged god curses the king's wife to lust upon the majestic bull, and the two bore a child, a beast who would live on to become the infamous Minotaur.
