In Greek Mythology Ariadne was the daughter of King Minos of Crete, mostly known for her association with labyrinths and mazes due to her having assisted Theseus in his quest to slay the Minotaur. She then fled with Theseus aboard his ship. However, when they landed on the island of Naxos, Theseus abandoned her as she was sleeping. It was here that the god Dionysos discovered her and made her his wife.
