One goddess in Greek Mythology that has always intrigued me is Hera. I mean, it always seemed to me like Zeus put her through A LOT.

Every now and then we bump into Hera lashing out. She did that with Hercules. But I also realized that there's more to the story. After he became a full God, it seems like they had a good relationship.

So perhaps there is more to Hera than meets the eye? What do you guys think?


I think there is more to her than we realize. I mean, she was jealous of Hercules because of what Zeus did (cheated on her) but when he became a full God, their relationship seemed good. So maybe she was just a woman who was sick of dealing with her husband's crap!

Greek God of Fire Relationship

I have a question for all you mythology aficionados...

The Greek God of Fire, Hephaestus, is not really talked about in Greek mythology.

I didn't know until recently that he was the husband of Aphrodite!? She seems to overpower him in the "relationship".

Is there any information about their relationship out there? I can't find anything...

Favorite Greek Mythological Story?

I love reading about Greek Mythology. Even though this isn't a part what Greece is today, I feel that knowing these stories is a way to honor the Ancient Greeks.

I have a few favorites - what are your favorites?

  • The tragic story of Medusa
  • The 12 Labors of Hercules
  • Anything related to the Minotaur
  • The Golden Fleece

Greek Mythology on Corfu?

I have noticed that there are some differences in some of the Greek myths according to where in Greece I am. I cam't explain it... but when I went to Crete a few years ago I noticed that there were some differences.

It got me wondering - is it like this throughout Greece? Are there stories I should look into for when I visit Corfu?

Important Places of Greek Mythology?

I was just thinking about the Greek mythos and legends and how in some of them, location appears to be important.

For example, Mount Olympus is a real mountain in Greece. The Archeron River, one of the five rivers of Hades, really exists. The story of the Minotaur has a backdrop of the Knossos Palace (I think). There was the Oracle of Delphi in the stories, and Delphi really exists.

Can you think of anything else? I find this stuff interesting.

Prove the mythological gods do not exist
