Ever wonder which greek god you would be? Play our fun Which Greek God Are You quiz to see which greek god matches your personality! In ancient Greek religion, a core pantheon of twelve gods and goddesses was worshipped. The king of the gods was Zeus, who defeated his father for the throne of Olympus. Together with his brothers Poseidon and Hades, Zeus ruled the land, sea, and underworld. Many Greek myths were attempts to explain natural phenomena by describing how the various relationships between the gods played out.
Apart from Zeus, the other main Greek gods were Apollo, the god of music and philosophy; Ares, the god of war; Dionysus, the god of revelry; Hades, the god of the dead; Hephaestus, the god of blacksmiths; Hermes, the messenger of the gods; and Poseidon, the god of the ocean. There are also titans, such as Kronos, the titan of time, and Hypnos, the titan of sleep.
Unlike the death gods of other pantheons, Hades isn't portrayed as evil or a bad guy. He's actually quite a fair ruler of the underworld! And unlike his brother gods, Hades is quite faithful to his wife, Persephone. Although some versions of the myth have him falling in love with her from afar and then kidnapping her, in other versions, Persephone went willing to get away from an overbearing mother.
Another fun fact about Hades has to do with his pet. Cerberus is a three-headed dog who guards the underworld, and living heroes trying to get to Hades usually have to trick or beguile Cerberus in some way. In most art, Cerberus is depicted as solid black, or more rarely, red. However, 'kerberoi' in ancient Greek means 'spotted.' That's right, the god of the underworld named his pet dog Spot!
