King Midas was a very rich man. He lived in a castle with his daughter Phillomena. Phillomena was a very beautiful girl with a beautiful smile that everyone adorded.
Phillomena ment everything to King Midas.
One day Phillomena came up to her father and said "father there's a strange man at our gates," so King Midas held Pillomena's hand and went out side to see who this strange man was. To his amazment it was Silenus a friend of the god Dionysus. Instead of sending Silenus away, King Midas invited him to stay at his palace.
King Midas enjoyed having Silenus around but soon it was time for him to go. The god Dionysus was pleased Midas had helped his friend and offered to grant Midas a wish.
King Midas wished that everything he touched would turn to gold. Then he would be the richest man in the world.
The god kept his promise and sure enough, everything Midas touched turned to gold. He went round his palace using his new power. But King Midas wish turned against him. He found that he couldn't eat or drink as all his food and wine turned to gold when he touched it! Midas begged Dionysus to remove the spell. So Dionysus removed the spell and he lived happily ever after.
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.
