The Olympian Council and other well-known Gods and Goddesses

Hello! Welcome back to Mismatched Mythology! Today I am going to introduce you to some the most respected gods and goddesses. The Olympian Council is some of the most powerful and important gods and goddess. They rule over Mount Olympus, which is where they live.

On the Olympian Council is Zeus, king of the gods and ruler of the heavens. He rules with his sister and wife, Hera, goddess of marriage, birth, women, and family. Zeus, along with his brothers, Poseidon (god of the sea) and Hades (god of the underworld), make up the Big Three.         Demeter (goddess of the harvest), Hera, and Hestia (goddess of the hearth and home) make up the girl Big Three.  Those are the six children of Cronus and Rhea, the king and queen of the Titans.

        They make up part of the Olympian Council. The rest of the Council is made up by Apollo, the god of poetry, healing, archery, and the sun, Artemis, the goddess of the moon and the hunt, Persephone, goddess of spring and queen of the underworld, along with Ares, god of war, Dionysus, god of wine and revelry, Hermes, god of travelers and thieves, Athena, goddess of war and wisdom, and Hephaestus, god of craftsmanship and fire.
