History fof the Greek Gods

Nike is known to the Ancient Greece as the god of victory.

Athena, the river god of Styx was the mother to Nike. According to the history of Ancient Greece, Nike was much closed to Zeus and she was found seated beside Zeus in Olympus. The reason behind that was because Nike helped Zeus to achieve victory from the war with the Titans. Nike is portrayed in ancient Greece as a winged woman and over the head a wreath to a crown. Every victory in ancient Greece from a war was called Nike as they believed that Nike, the goddess of victory was behind their success. To honor the goddess of victory called Nike, the first Olympic Games held in Athens in 776 B.

C, winners were given the wreath to a crown. Hera in Ancient Greek history is portrayed as the goddess of marriage and childbirth. Her story is a bit weird as she was known to be both the wife and sister of the head of all the Greek gods, Zeus. According to ancient Greek history young Hera was swallowed up along with her other siblings. Young Zeus a brother to Hera was hidden by the mother from the dad. Zeus grew up as a strong young god and poisoned his father, which brought back Hera and his other siblings after he vomited. Hera was known in the role of a great hero Heracles who was a son of a mortal woman Zeus had a child with.

Act of jealousy Hera sent two snakes to kill young Heracles, but the boy was able to defeat and kill the two snakes. As her first attempt to kill the little boy Heracles failed, she sent a madness to Heracles when he was married with three sons. Due to the madness, Heracles murdered his whole family. Symposium in the archaic age was known to be events performed by upper-class men in Ancient Greek history.
