Zeus saw Europa gathering flowers and immediately fell in love with her. Zeus transformed himself into a whitebull and carried Europa away to the island of Crete. He then revealed his true identity and Europa became the first queen of Crete.
Cilix, Europa's other brother, also searched for her and settled down in Asia Minor. The land was called Cilicia after him.
