Jason and the Golden Fleece

Madeliene L Lexie Z

All About Greek God Jason!


The Greek god known as Jason from the story Jason and the Golden Fleece is a brave, fearless and sly man that defeated the evil serpent that was guarding the dazzling Golden Fleece. His father is Aeson, his stepmother is Ino, his two wives are Medea and Alaimens. Finally, his four children are Aeetest, Ldyia, Heleus, and Antiope. He was supposed to be crowned King, but his uncle took over. As Jason got older, he wanted to face his uncle and gain back what was his. His uncle said that Jason could only have his throne back when he had found and brought back the Golden Fleece. The King didn’t think Jason would complete this task. On his way home, Jason had to sail through two large rocks, he was told to have a dove fly through the opening; if the rocks opened for the bird, then they, too could go through. When Jason let the bird fly through the rocks, it got out safe and sound. He went home and brought back the Golden Fleece.
