What is king Midas story?

Midas was a wealthy king of Phrygia in Asia Minor. He 'captured' Seilenos, who was the companion of the god Dionysus, with the lure of wine and treated the old satyr hospitably and upon returning him to the god was rewarded with a wish. He prayed for a golden touch, a boon which quickly proved a curse when the king discovered his food likewise transformed. Petitioning the god again, he was instructed to bathe in the river Paktolos which rid him of the power, and imbued the river's sands with gold. Later the king was called upon to attend a musical contest between the gods Apollon and Pan (or else the satyr Marsyas, who was flayed). The foolish king declared his preference for the music of the pipe and was inflicted with a pair of asses' ears by the angry lyre-god. Ashamed of this deformity, Midas hid the ears beneath the flaps of a Phrygian cap, the traditional head-gear of the local nobility.

Did king Midas have sisters?

Midas was the son of Cybele and Gordius; no other children of Gordius are known, however, Cybele was strongly identified with the androgyny Agdistis who possessing male and female organs was feared by the other deities. Who then castrated Agdistis; from the blood grew a almond tree, which either produced the boy child Attis by itself or when Nana, daughter of the river-god Sangarius, was gathering the fruit of this tree, she put some almonds (or, in some accounts, a pomegranate) into her bosom; but here the almonds disappeared, and she became pregnant with Attis who was consort and beloved by Cybele/Agdistis. This would make Midas the brother of Attis as well Korybas by Iasion (first of the Korybantes) Sabazios (equivalent to Dionysus) Would also be sons of Cybele and brothers of Midas. Of daughters of Cybele I can find only two: Alke-Kybele (by Olympus) Nicaea was his sister by Cybele and the river god Sangarius.

What is the myth of king midas?

From Wikipedia: . Once, as Ovid relates in Metamorphoses XI Dionysus found his old schoolmaster and foster father, the satyr Silenus, missing. The old satyr Silenus had been drinking wine and had wandered away drunk, later to be found by some Phrygian peasants, who carried him to their king, Midas (alternatively, he passed out in Midas' rose garden). Midas recognized him and treated him hospitably, entertaining him for ten days and nights with politeness, while Silenus delighted Midas and his friends with stories and songs. On the eleventh day, he brought Silenus back to Dionysus in Lydia. Dionysus offered Midas his choice of whatever reward he wished for. Midas asked that whatever he might touch should be changed into gold. Midas rejoiced in his new power, which he hastened to put to the test. He touched an oak twig and a stone; both turned to gold. Overjoyed, as soon as he got home, he ordered the servants to set a feast on the table. "So Midas, king of Lydia, swelled at first with pride when he found he could transform everything he touched to gold; but when he beheld his food grow rigid and his drink harden into golden ice then he understood that this gift was a bane and in his loathing for gold, cursed his prayer" (Claudian, In Rufinem ). In a version told by Nathaniel Hawthorne in A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys (1852), Midas found that when he touched his daughter, she turned to gold as well. Now, Midas hated the gift he had coveted. He prayed to Dionysus, begging to be delivered from starvation. Dionysus heard his prayer, and consented; telling Midas to wash in the river Pactolus. Then, what ever he put into the water would be reversed of the touch. Midas did so, and when he touched the waters, the power flowed into the river, and the river sands turned into gold. This explained why the river Pactolus was so rich in gold, and the wealth of the dynasty claiming Midas as its forefather no doubt the impetus for this aetiological myth. Gold was perhaps not the only metallic source of Midas' riches: "King Midas, a Phrygian, son of Cybele, first discovered black and white lead". Midas, now hating wealth and splendor, moved to the country and became a worshipper of Pan, the god of the fields and satyr. [18] Roman mythographers asserted that his tutor in music was Orpheus. Once, Pan had the audacity to compare his music with that of Apollo, and challenged Apollo, the god of the lyre, to a trial of skill (also see Marsyas). Tmolus, the mountain-god, was chosen as umpire. Pan blew on his pipes and, with his rustic melody, gave great satisfaction to himself and his faithful follower, Midas, who happened to be present. Then, Apollo struck the strings of his lyre. Tmolus at once awarded the victory to Apollo, and all but one agreed with the judgment. Midas dissented, and questioned the justice of the award. Apollo would not suffer such a depraved pair of ears any longer, and said,"Must have ears of an ass!"and caused them to become the ears of a donkey... Midas was mortified at this mishap. He attempted to hide his misfortune under an ample turban or headdress, but his barber of course knew the secret, so was told not to mention it. However, the barber could not keep the secret; he went out into the meadow, dug a hole in the ground, whispered the story into it, then covered the hole up. A thick bed of reeds later sprang up in the meadow, and began whispering the story, saying "King Midas has an ass's ears". .
