Rhadamanthus was a demigod and a son of Zeus.

History

Rhadamanthus was the son of Zeus and Europa. He had two brothers: Minos and Sarpedon. He became a wise king. After his death he became one of the judges of the dead, his brother Minos also became one of these judges.

Rhadamanthus was raised by Asterion. He fathered two sons, Gortys and Erythrus.

In one account, Rhadamanthus ruled Crete before Minos, and gave the island an excellent code of laws, which the Spartans were believed to have copied.

Driven out of Crete by Minos, who was jealous of his popularity, he fled to Boeotia, where he wedded Alcmene. Homer represents him as dwelling in the Elysian Fields, the paradise for the immortal sons of Zeus.
