Ancient Greek and Roman Myths Notes

Danae

Danae the daughter of Acrisius, King of Argos. The oracle warned Acrisius that he would be slain by his grandson. The king ordered Danae to be locked in her bedroom. Zeus found out about Danae and came to her as a golden rain. As a result of this love affair Perseus was born. Acrisius ordered his daughter and grandson be thrown into the sea in a wooden chest.
