The 12 Main Gods Main Gods are: Aphrodite - Goddess of love, romance, and beauty. Her son was Eros, god of Love Apollo - Beautiful god of the sun, light, medicine, and music. Ares - Dark god of war who loves Aphrodite. Artemis - Independent goddess of the hunt, the forest, wildlife, childbirth, and the moon. Sister to Apollo. Athena - Daughter of Zeus and goddess of wisdom, war, and crafts. Sometimes spelled "Athene".

Hades- King of the underworld; God of death and the dead Hephaestus - Lame god of fire and the forge. Sometimes spelled Hephaistos. The Hephaestion near the Acropolis is the most beautifully preserved ancient temple in Greece. Mated to Aphrodite. Hera - Wife of Zeus, protector of marriage, familiar with magic. Hermes - The speedy messenger of the gods, god of business. The Romans called him Mercury. Hestia - Calm goddess of home and homelife, symbolized by the hearth which holds the continually-burning flame. Poseidon - God of the sea, horses, and of earthquakes. Zeus - Supreme lord of gods, god of the sky, symbolized by the thunderbolt. Nike-The Goddess of Victory

Nike's Parents: Daughter of Styx, called a nymph but actually the presiding spirit over the major river of the Underworld, and Pallas, a Titan. Nikes Siblings: She has three brothers Zelos,Kratos, and Bia, which are, respectively, rivalry, strength, and force. Nikes Spouse- She never married Nikes offspring- she never had children

Nikes Friends- Athena What Nike is best known for: Despite being half-Titan by her father Pallas, Nike fought against the Titans on the side of the Olympians. Driving through battles in her chariot, and became synonymous with victory. Pictures of Nike I Believe Archeologists, came across a Ancient Greek site and discovered a story about Nike the Goddess of Victory. It took them about a week to piece the story together and this is what it said. The story starts off innocent enough with Nike and Athena discussing how they were going to win a contest. Not, just any contest but a contest about love.
