Perseus

The Greatest Greek Hero

Who is he?

Perseus was the son of the mortal Danae and the god Zeus. He is well known for beheading the Gorgon Medusa and saved Andromeda from the sea monster Cetus.

How did he kill Medusa?

Hermes, a Greek god, gave him a curved sword and winged sandals, Athena a mirrorlike shield, and Hades a helmet that made Perseus invisible. He used to the helmet when sneaking into her lair where he found Medusa and her sister's sleeping. He used the curved sword to slice off her head. The sisters woke up and tried to attack Perseus, but he used his winged sandals to fly away before being killed.
