Some interesting facts regarding the Greek gods

The ancient Greeks reshaped the world via philosophy, literature, architecture, and other means of expression and the most basic things from fine art candles to mathematics. Ancient Greece was a land of scientists who loved knowledge as it was a mighty empire. They had their own type of religion, they committed their lives to the gods, and they even made sacrifices for them, from lavish feasts to waging wars on the gods' enemies. In addition, the evil aspect of the Greek gods is often ignored by modern people. But old legends and myths have continued to narrate the stories of the Greek gods as they are passed throughout history to our times. But let us analyze the atrocities and unthinkable things for us that they have done.


With his trusty thunderbolt in hand, Zeus, the king of the gods, governed the world from his throne on Mount Olympus. Zeus was more than a ruler in his own right. He was also a bit of a sex addict, which was unfortunate. He slept with whomever he desired. Zeus cheated on his wife on a regular basis. And often, his quick relationships resulted in the birth of offspring. He fathered many heroes of Greek mythology, like Hercules and

These youngsters were referred to as muses, and they were experts in both science and the arts, inspiring and igniting creativity in others.

Who said that romance was extinct? Zeus was a man who was willing to go to any length to attain his objectives. If you are still not persuaded that he was a bit off, he basically raped his sister. Another time, he enticed one virgin into the woodland to sexually assault her. As you guessed, he really didn't care about the consent part. Zeus was not the most courteous of individuals.


Poseidon was drawn to Demeter, who happened to be his sister. Welp, you probably know what happened next. He attempted to enter into a romantic connection with her, but he made the apparent mistake. She rebuffed his preludes and transformed into a mare. A passionate and stubborn guy, Poseidon transformed himself into a powerful stallion and found her. As a result of their relationship, a horse Arion came to life.


Hades, the god of the underworld, was not the best character to fight or underestimate. Hades was initially affiliated only with the underworld, according to mythology. However, because he was also linked with rich metals and gems on Earth, Hades was seen as a wealthy deity. I feel that having perpetual authority over the dead has certain advantages.

On the other hand, Hades wasn't that bad. Unfortunately, when he, Zeus, and Poseidon shared the Earth, he got the underworld part for himself. It's a real pity. One thing that Hades and his siblings have in common is that they have a bad reputation when it comes to dealing with women. This is precisely what you have predicted, isn't it? Demeter's daughter, Persephone, was compelled to marry Hades after he kidnapped her and forcefully transported her to his domain. According to a legend, the funny thing is that Zeus was the birth father of his offspring.
