This gallery contains images/paintings that describe the journey Ariadne went through, trying to free herself from her family and father. Ariadne, the daughter of King Minos of Crete, assisted Theseus in his quest to slay the Minotaur and then fled with him aboard his ship. When they landed on the island of Naxos, Theseus abandoned her as she was sleeping. It was there that the god Dionysos discovered her and made her his wife. Some say that she was later killed by Artemis, and others say that she was granted immorality.
