Transcript of Ares the Greek God of War

Ares (God of War) Most myths tell us that Ares was born naturally to Zeus and Hera. However, Ovid, in his poem called Fasti, tells the story differently. Hera was furious at Zeus for conceiving yet another child (Minerva) with another woman (Thetis). In her rage, she confided to one of her attendants, Chloris, the nymph-goddess of flowers. Hera wanted revenge. The nymph told her she knew of a way of conceiving without the need of a man. She told her that a flower from the fields of Olenus can make her conceive her own child. And Hera did so. As soon as she touched the flower, she became pregnant with Ares. Birth Myth Parents Significant Other Ares is known as the son of the Supreme Greek God Zeus and his legitimate wife Hera. They were not fond of him at all. Just a little more loving nurturing care, Ares might have been the God of Minor Conflicts. Aphrodite had an affair with Ares behind the back of her husband, Hephaestus, God of Craftsmanship. The most famous story related to Ares and Aphrodite shows them exposed to ridicule through the wronged husband's clever device. A R E S &

Aphrodite was the goddess of love and beauty. Aphrodite was known to the Romans as Venus. With her exquisite features and pleasant smile she attracted many suitors, gods and mortals alike. However, she was married to the graceless and lame Hephaestus, the god of fire. Her true love was Ares, the god of war. Their child was the beautiful goddess Harmonia. Really every God and Goddesses hated Ares. Ares even killed his cousin Halirrhothios because he was about to rape Alkippe, daughter of Ares. Aphrodite was the only one who "liked" Ares. It was said Ares could decide the outcome of a battle. not someone you wanted as an enemy. I think only the main three Gods, Zeus, Posiedon, and Hades, have gifts. One day while Ares and Aphrodite were together, they were caught in an invisible but strong net forged by Hephaestus and exposed to the ridicule and laughter to of the other Gods at Mt. Olympus. The first homicide case ever to be tried in ancient Greece has a direct connection to Ares. It seems that the god accused Poseidon's son Halirrhothius of trying to rape his daughter Alkippe. An altercation took place and Halirrhothius lost his life. There were no witnesses to the incident except for Alkippe, who readily confirmed her father's story. Ares was acquitted of the crime, and this was the first judgement ever pronounced in a murder trial. From that day forward, the Athenian hill where the court proceedings took place was called the Areopagus or Hill of Ares. This ends my prezi on Ares.
Have a good day!!! Hill of Ares or Areopagus Ares
