I think King Minos called daedalus to build the labyrinth so he can imprison the minotaur- half man; half bull which is a son of pasiphae the wife of poseidon that was given as a gift to the king by the sea god
61 3 61
so why did minos imprison daedalus?
because Daedalus knew that Minos was up to something bad so he warned minos' daughters and the daughters believed him so inorder to shut him up he imprisoned him in his own labyrinth but obviously he knows the way. :)
