The 12 Greek Gods
There are 12 Greek Gods that will be in this article today. I will be talking about Zeus, Poseidon, Hestia, Hera, Ares, Athena, Apollo, Aphrodite, Hermes, Artemis, and Hephaestus.
Zeus
Zeus is the king of the Gods. He overthrew his father Cronus then drew lots with Poseidon and Hades. He won the draw and became the supreme ruler of the Gods. He is the God of the sky, lightening, thunder, law and justice. His weapon is a thunderbolt (he hurls at those who displease him). He married Hera but he is famous for many, many affairs.
Poseidon
He is the brother of Zeus. After the overthrow of Cronus, he drew lots with Zeus and Hades, to share the power of the world. He became the God of the sea. His weapon is a a trident which can shake the world, and can shatter any object. He is the most powerful Olympian God, after Zeus.
Hestia
She is Zeus' sister, she is a virgin Godness, she doesn't have a distinct personality. She is no part in myths. She is the godness of the hearth. Each city had a public hearth sacred to Hastia, where the fire was never allowed to go out.
Hera
She is Zeus' sister, but also his wife. He is the protector of marriage and takes care of married woman. Zeus courted her unsuccessfully and she got very jealous of Zeus of his affairs.
Ares
He is the son of Zeus and Hera. They both dislike him. He is the God of war and he is considered murderous and bloodstained but, also a coward. He was in an act of adultery with Aphrodite, her husband Hesphaestus publicly ridiculed him. His animal is the dog.
Athena
She is the son of Zeus. She is fierce and brave in the battle but only fights to protect the state and home from outside enemies. She is the embodiment of wisdom, reason, and purity. She is Zeus' favourite child and she is allowed to use his weapons including the thunderbolt.
Apollo
He is the son of Zeus and Leto. His twin sister is Artemis. He is the God of music, and the sun.
Aphrodite
She is the Godness of love, desire, and beauty. She has two accounts of birth. One says she is the daughter of Zeus and Dione. The other says that Aphrodite got created from the sea. She is the wife of Hephaestus but had many affairs with his brother, Ares.
Hermes
He is the son of Zeus and Maia. He is also Zeus' messenger. He is the fastest of the Gods. He wears winged sandals, a winged hat, and carries magic wand. He is the God of the thieves and commerce. Guide for the dead to go to the underworld.
Artemis
She is the daughter of Zeus and Leto. Her twin brother is Apollo and they have a strong relationship between them. She is the lady of wild things. Like Apollo, she hunts with silver arrows. She is the god of chasity. Also presides with child birth, but goes back to cause Leto no pain when she was born because Hera put her in pain since Zeus had another affair with Leto.
Hephaestus
He is the son of Zeus and Hera. Sometimes it said that Hero alone produced him and that he has no father. He is the only god who is physically ugly and lame. He is the god of fire and the forge. He is the smith and armorer of the gods. He uses volcano as his forge. He's kind and peace loving. His wife is Aphrodite but she had many affairs with his younger brother, Ares.
And that is it for the 11 Greek Gods! Now to the little secret of Hera and Zeus! :)
