The Ancient Greek Amazons were a special breed of women who were built for war. They were said to be created by the Otera who was also their queen. Otera taught herself how to fight and be a warrior at a young age to escape the trouble of her family life as a young girl. She soon started recruiting women and training them to become fighters. They travelled from village to village in Greece and freed women from their oppressive men whether husbands or fathers.


There being Amazon warriors from Greece is so fascinating to me. Thanks for sharing this!

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 Stories of Greek Mythology

I am studying up on some Greek Mythology. I am making a list of key stories to look into and get to know. Can you think of anything I may have missed:

- Prometheus gives mankind fire
- Anything related to the Minotaur
- I plan to read the Iliad and the Odyssey
- How medusa turned into a monster
- Zeus's various "Exploits"
- Anything related to Hercules
- Information about the Olympian gods and goddesses
- The war with the Titans

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?


Who is everyone's favorite Greek God/Goddess & Why?

If there are any here who practice witchcraft, do you work with any of the Greek Gods/Goddesses and why/how did you start?

Hestia - A forgotton goddess?

I don't know much about Hestia and I want to learn. My grandmother used to talk about her all the time- I don't know why!

I looked her up in Theoi.com:

HESTIA was the virgin goddess of the hearth (both private and municipal) and the home. As the goddess of the family hearth she also presided over the cooking of bread and the preparation of the family meal.

My grandmother loved to cook. Is this probably why my grandmother would reference this goddess?
