In Greek mythology, the island was home to the king Minos and the princesses Ariadne and Phaidra and is also where the legendary hero Theseus fought the Minotaur. Later Greek murals on the island prominently featured the Minotaur, and the island itself held an almost mythological status in the Greek world at large.
Krete was settled for the first time around 8000 BCE, and in time became the home of the Minoan civilization, named after king Minos by the archaeologist Arthur John Evans. This culture thrived on trade, and its influence extended over the eastern Mediterranean, usually through peaceful means.
In 44 BCE, sometime after the assassination of Julius Caesar, the Hidden One Marcus Junius Brutus departed for Crete from Rome. There he established a branch of the Hidden Ones and worked to eliminate tyrants on the island.
Age of Enlightenment
The island was used by the Templar Order as a headquarters many times across the centuries. During the Seven Years' War Shay Cormac sent some agents of his fleet to the island to depart for nearby kingdoms. They recovered the Minoan Bull-Leaping Fresco.
