The story of King Midas

Name: Rimsha 8th September 2012
The story also had that Midas turned his daughter into gold. Anyway good way of turning it in your own words. I'll give this story 3 stars.
Name: Anonomus 29th November 2012
you need a little more detail about the curse to give a sense of sadness and annoyance to the gift. other than that, i liked.

Name: Hater Of Hw 7th July 2013
thanks for the help
Name: Suddendisaster 21st February 2014
This is very incorrect. Midas' daughter was named Marigold. Also, Midas found Silenus in his wine fields. Your last bit of incorrect information was when you said King Midas lived happily ever after; his daughter hugged him and turned to gold. I doubt that would be a happy ending at all.

Midas was actually a king, he helped a satyr in trouble, Dionysus gave him a wish, he chose the golden touch. He found running water reverses the spell, and had everything covered in water. Then he died and enjoyed the underworld. He never gave up the blessing.

Name: Afreen 4th February 2016
this story was good but some detail was missing
Name: John 7th February 2016
that story was completely wrong Apollo gave him the touch.
Name: Juana Solis-Cisneros 10th February 2016
I think that it was useful for my research on him what it needs is at what time he asked for the wish
Name: A_norwegian_guy 20th February 2016
i thought he also touched a lady (his daughter?) before it was reverted. but then again, old stories have a MILLION different versions! and that version didn't mention him getting RID of the wish. it just ended with him sitting on a pile of gold (i think) and crying, but he rubbed under his eyes in a cartoony crying way, and that made him cry gold coins.
Name: Aissata 1st March 2016
they do have different versions.
Name: Fahim 28th March 2016

Name: Lolman 5th June 2016
Name: Not Telling You X3 10th June 2016
This is not true, however the first part is. Actually, King Midas one night hugged his daughter and she turned into gold. She had a gold tear on her cheek. King Midas lived under the dispair of him killing his own daughter. He did not live happily ever after. The end.

The story is missing out on the big picture. You took out the mest part and therefore the story is too short and it's not true.

It was a bit wrong but quite good.But Philomena hugged Midas and turned to gold then Midas begged Dionysus to remove the spell and was told to wash it off in a magic river and he took some home and dropped it on Philomena and she turned back.
Name: Lisa 17th June 2017
This is a bit off. King Midas had everything turned to gold even his beloved daughter and when he prayed to Dionysus to take away his gift the god relented and told him to wash in the river Pactolus and whatever was put into the water would be turned back to what it was. King Midas put his hands in the water and the power flowed into the river which is why the river Pactolus is so rich in gold.
Name: Isabella 27th July 2017
wasn\'t the Silenus drunk and somehow got into the royal garden?
Name: Alice 16th August 2017
I learned that Phillomena hugged Midas and turned to gold and when Midas realized what he'd done, he prayed to Dionysus to rid him of his gift but he refused until Midas proved he was no longer as greedy as he was when he wished for it in the first place.
Name: Lily 5th October 2017
