Ariadne was featured in the story of "Theseus and the Minotaur".

She was the daughter of Minos the King. Every day she would enter the Labyrinth and care for the Minotaur. She knew the heart was human, no matter what the face.

When Theseus came to kill the Minotaur. Ariadne fell in love with Theseus at the first sight of him, and helped him by letting him out of jail and giving him a information and a ball of the thread, so that he could find his way out of the Minotaur's labyrinth. Theseus killed the Minotaur, only after learning that the monster was Ariadne's brother. Despite this, Ariadne was still madly in love with Theseus and went with him. However on the return trip, he abandoned her on the island of Naxos.

In Greek Mythology, it was mentioned that she was rescued by Dionysus.
