Aegeus was the founder and king of the city of Athens in ancient Greece, and father of the legendary Theseus. After nearly losing the city to King Minos of Crete during war, Aegeus agreed to a peace treaty under the term that seven men and seven women from the fourteen tribes of Athens would be sent to Crete in regular intervals to be fed to the Minotaur.
This repeated sacrifice continued on until the brave Theseus offered to help bring the practice to an end. Theseus volunteered himself to join the fourteen tributes so that he could slay the Minotaur. Aegeus was scared for his beloved son’s life, so to help ease his father’s fears Theseus agreed that he would ensure that his fate be announced by changing the sails on his ship to white upon his return home if he survived, and leaving them black should he have perished.
Aegeus waited in nervous anticipation at the edge of the cliffs overlooking the sea for his son's return. Although Theseus was successful in slaying the Minotaur, a few too many celebratory drinks and feasts on the journey home lead Theseus to forget his promise to his father and so he did not change his ship's sails. When Aegeus saw his son's ship approach with black sails, Aegeus thought that his beloved son had perished. Heartbroken, Aegeus threw himself from the cliffs and into the sea where he perished. From this moment forth, the sea became known as the Aegean.
