you ever heard of a couple of the hundreds of great Greek gods
such as Hercules or Zeus? Well if you haven't, let me tell you
a little about some of these famous gods..
|Zeus was the most powerful
god ever. He was called the God of the Sky and his weapon was
a thunderbolt. He was Hercule's father. Zeus married a woman
named Hera. Since he was such a powerful god, he didn't have
much time for his family. Zeus fell in love with a woman named
Alcmene. While Alcmene's husband was away, Zeus made her pregnant
with Hercules. When Hera heard of this she became furious. She
got so mad she tried to prevent the baby from being born. When
Hercules was born, Hera put snakes in the cradle but the baby
Hercules strangled the snakes before they could bite him. Then
and there, Zeus knew Hercules would be a great warrior. Now that
|Hercules is well-known for
the strength in his stories and his wonderful sculptures. His
father was Zeus. When Hercules grew up he became a great warrior.
Hercules married a woman named Magera. They had two kids.
|Hades is the god of the
Underworld. He is a brother to Zeus. He loved being the god of
the underworld but he really wanted a wife. One day he met a
wonderful woman named Persephone. In order to get to the Underworld
you would have to cross a river called the River Styx. Once in
the Underworld you could not go back for the gate was guarded
by a three headed dog named Cerberus.
