Greek mythology has 12 leading Gods - Olympians.
The last entry, Hades, is not "an Olympian" as his abode is the Netherworld, but he is the major Greek God.
The knowledge about the ancient world was very limited. The things that we know today to comply with physical laws were similar to magic to people thousands of years ago. Thus, to explain the natural world around them, people came up with divine explanations of gods and their antics. Each civilization had its own pantheon of gods and creation myths. One of the most popular myth systems is the Greek one! And in this Greek God quiz, you'll find which one you are!
Do you know much about Greek gods? How many deities of the abovementioned can you describe? At least one story about each?
I bet you've heard a couple of myths here and there, plus watched Disney's Hercules and some Odyssey feature films. But the world of the old Greek gods is so diverse, interesting, and bizarre. Plus, often, it's quite R18+. Most of the gods were rather sexually active, with the exception of a few virtuous ones.
Among the pro-free love deities, the leading role goes to Zeus. On the other end of the spectrum are virgin Athena and Artemis.

Yes, he is not an Olympian, but that is only a technicality due to his residence in the Underworld. In everything else, he is just as powerful and formidable as his brothers Zeus and Poseidon. His other name is Pluto which can be often heard in the tales of old.
Disney has made him a pretty villainous character, probably due to his rule of the world of death. In fact, he wasn't a villain in the story and often was less frivolous, sneaky, and sinful than his relatives, even considering Persephone's abduction.
This one is a tricky character. Although he was the leader of Olympians and a hero who defeated Cronus, Zeus was rather flawed. His sexual appetites of incredible magnitude led to numerous offspring and hatred from his wife, Hera. In addition, Zeus was not always chivalrous with his lovers. He loved to transform into every possible living being and tricked many mortal and immortal women. And this "Greek God parent quiz" will show whose character you've got.
This is the second generation Olympian, the son of Zeus and Hera. Now, we all know him as an important character in the Greek pantheon. He was the God of War (the original one!) and took part in many battles. However, Ares was not loved by the mortal folk who despised war. The only place where people worshipped Ares and put his statue in the capital is Sparta.
On the one hand, nobody loves wars. On the other hand, at the time, the whole region saw a great number of small and big battles. Praying to Ares could be just as crucial to saving your life in a battle as praying to Athena, for example.
Speaking of Athena, she is the ole model of a wise and virtuous Greek god. She was born out of Zeus' head (quite literally) but was far away from her father's behavior. She was the Goddess of wisdom and strategic warfare. She was always armed but had a kind heart and helped many heroes. She was also a virgin deity.
