About This Quiz

Greek mythology is chock-full of intriguing stories, to say the least. OK, let's be honest; they're downright controversial. Even in this modern day, the relationships and events portrayed in these stories can shock and surprise those who read them. This body of work contains many themes tagged as taboo in ancient times. There's sex, incest, rape, murder, castration, abductions and other unspeakable acts. Yes, they're still taboo, but we can dissect these issues properly now, at least. 

Based on these topics, it's safe to assume that even the minor characters in these tales may have something to say about the major players for sure. Ever wonder what the family or friends of Zeus' lovers said about this philandering god? People are powerless compared to these deities, sure. But that doesn't make mortal opinions invalid.

What about the other major characters? Ever wonder how they felt about specific events? We're sure they also have an opinion or two. Think of how the primordial beings felt horrified when the Titans took over in the brutal way they did. And that war waged by the Olympians against their own predecessors was something else. That's what the Titanomachy was all about. Talk about family drama! 

Want to join the fray? Fit in as one of the goddesses. We'll drop some opinion and info about specific mythical figures and tell us what you think. We'll then see, based on your opinion, which goddess you're echoing, personality-wise. Come on; this one's truly fun!
