Greek mythology

Greek mythology is filled with all kinds of interesting characters. It contains petty gods, demi-god heroes, and vicious monsters. The youngest generation of the gods are the Olympians and their offspring. These are the most famous deities, but there used to be another generation of gods that ruled over the universe. That generation is referred to as “Titans (male) and Titanides (female)”. The majority of Greek mythology revolves around the Olympians and their offspring, some of them demi-gods that were fathered on mortals. We attempt to provide a clear overview of all interesting characters down below.

The mythology of the Greek world spread to the Romans and found syncreticsim with the Egyptian mythology. Where the Greco-Roman mythology was largely the same, both would borrow elements from the Egyptian pantheon and its stories.
