The minotaur king is the upgrade to the minotaur, the fifth-level creature of the Dungeon faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III. It can be recruited from the upgraded labyrinth.

Minotaurs and minotaur kings live in labyrinths and devour all who enter. These bull-like humanoids are sure of their ability to dominate in battle and have good morale. This self image is well-founded as they are durable and have a very damaging axe attack.OffBck

With increases to attack, defense, and speed, this is a useful, but unimpressive upgrade.


  • Dace is a specialist in minotaur kings, and gives them +1 to Attack and Defense per hero level after fifth level. These creatures also get +1 to Speed.
