Why Is Greek Mythology So Interesting?

Greek mythology is probably the place where the first super-heroes were born and regardless your age, it's impossible not to find the old Greek tales and legends fascinating.

While there are many countries that have amazing stories and legends about gods and goddesses who are believed to have ruled the earth many years ago, we find Greek mythology to be one of the most colorful and captivating.

The Greek folklore tells us stories of powerful deities, creatures with fantastic powers, battles for power between brothers and sisters, giants, infidelity, betrayal, and so on.

Because of all the enthralling stories portrayed by this mythology, numerous movies, and TV series have been made or inspired by it. You might have heard about or seen movies like "The Legend of Hercules," "Immortals," "Clash of the Titans," and so on.

Unfortunately, in Greek mythology, doesn't exist a single book where one can read the full story of these ancient deities.

These tales and myths were a regular part of everyday life in ancient Greece and were transmitted from one person-to-person and from one generation to another until finally poets and influential persons started to write about them.

These legends arose due to the need for people to explain the various things of their day-to-day life, nature, and religious rituals.

Basically, there was almost a god or goddess for everything. From more important gods like the god of the sky to lesser-known gods like the god of hygiene or god of necessity.

Even though most people only know the twelve Olympian gods, which are seen as the major deities of the Greek pantheon, there were actually more than 350 of them. Besides those, there were also many demigods, immortals, and other godly beings that lived before the Olympians, such as the Titans.

Twelve Olympians

The twelve Olympians are commonly considered to be:

  • Zeus
  • Hera
  • Ares
  • Artemis
  • Poseidon
  • Athena 
  • Apollo
  • Demeter
  • Hephaestus
  • Aphrodite
  • Hermes

and either Hestia or Dionysus.

Greek mythology is very complex and there are more tales and legends than many people know.
