Olympian Gods Trivia Questions

1. Hera is the youngest of Cronus' and Rhea's three daughters. Who are her two sisters?

From Quiz
Greek Mythology: Hera and Her Enemies

Answer: Hestia and Demeter

Hestia is the oldest child of Cronus and Rhea, Titans of Greek mythology. Hestia is the virgin goddess of the family, the hearth, the state and the family home. When Cronus swallowed his children to prevent a prophecy coming true from Gaia about his sons overthrowing him and stealing his power, Hestia was the last to be regurgitated, therefore is considered both the eldest and the youngest of Cronus and Rhea. Later, when Poseidon and Apollo were both trying to become her suitors, a repulsed Hestia begged Zeus to allow her to stay a virgin for life. Zeus accepted and Hestia took her place at the royal hearth. Demeter is the goddess of wheat, corn and harvest. She is known for the tale of the abduction of her daughter, Persephone. Hades, god of the underworld abducted Persephone to marry her. Demeter intervened and her Hades agreed to share custody of Persephone, for half a year each. This was the explanation in Greek mythology for the yearly change in weather seasons.

2. Which god was trapped in a bronze jar by the Aload twins, Otis and Ephialtes?

From Quiz So You Think You Can Compete With An Olympian

Answer: Ares

Ares was trapped in a pithos (storage jar) by the Aload twins. Ares shrieked for thirteen days until Hermes was sent to his rescue by Hera, who could not stand her son's screaming. Some people say Poseidon bought the release of Ares. Apollo and Dionysus were half brothers of Ares by Zeus. Kronos was the Titan of time and father of the first Olympians.

3. What is Poseidon's chosen symbol of power?

From Quiz Peppy Poseidon

Answer: Trident

Poseidon's famous three-pronged spear, also called a trident, was a gift to him from the cyclopes, who also gave Zeus his thunderbolt and Hades his helm of darkness. They had acquired these after their victory over the Titans.

4. Semele, Dionysus' mother, is generally considered to be a mortal. However, who were her maternal grandparents?

From Quiz Dionysus' Family

Answer: Ares and Aphrodite

Harmonia, Semele's mother, is the goddess of (what else?) harmony. Although there are some alternate myths concerning her parentage, it is most commonly ascribed to Ares and Aphrodite. (None of the other choices are remotely candidates.) I think it makes sense that Harmony would be the offspring of the blending of the two opposites, War and Love.

5. Athena asks: "My mother, Metis, is the goddess of what?"

From Quiz Clever Enough for Athena?

Answer: Crafty wisdom

Athena confides: "Yes, Metis is the goddess of crafty wisdom. It is due to her craftiness that I was born from my father's head. So remember, in case your husband or father swallows your wife or mom, pray that she is crafty!"

6. What was the name of the Titan that fathered Zeus?

From Quiz All in the Family

Answer: Cronus

Cronus was the son of Gaia and Uranus. The throne of Uranus was overthrown by Cronus. Cronus had six children with his wife Rhea. They were Hera, Hades, Poseidon, Demeter, Hestia, and the youngest Zeus. Cronus swallowed five of his children when they were young. While Rhea carried Zeus, she plotted her young son's escape. After Zeus was born, Rhea wrapped a stone in a blanket and gave it to Cronus pretending it was Zeus. Cronus ate the stone and Rhea was able to get Zeus away before his father learned the truth of what had happened.

7. According to Hesiod, who was Athena's mother?

From Quiz Wise Enough for Athena?

Answer: Metis

Athena was the child of Metis and Zeus. Fearing he would be overthrown by his child, Zeus swallowed the pregnant Metis whole. Athena was then born from Zeus's head.

8. Who is the uncle of more than half the gods and is doomed to rule over the dead?

From Quiz Greek Mythology Fun Facts

Answer: Hades

Hades is the uncle of more than half of the gods. Like Zeus, Hades is usually represented as a vigorous bearded man. His symbol is the scepter or horn of plenty. His wife is Persephone. His pets include Cerberus, black horses, and various other hounds

9. As he is to many gods and goddesses, Zeus is the father of Apollo. Apollo does not have the same mother as many of the gods and goddesses Zeus fathered. Who was Apollo's mother?

From Quiz Apollo, God of Light

Answer: Leto

Leto is the daughter of the Titans Coeus and Phoebe. Leto also mothered Artemis, Apollo's twin.

10. The beautiful Aphrodite was married, you know. But to whom?

From Quiz Greek Myths: Aphrodite

Answer: Hephaestus

Figures. The most beautiful gal gets hooked up with the ugliest guy!

11. Who was Athena the daughter of?

From Quiz All About Athena

Answer: Zeus and Metis

Some people argue about this saying that she didn't have a mother or Zeus wasn't her dad. But Athena's real parents are Zeus and Metis.

12. Who were the parents of Apollo and Artemis?

From Quiz Apollo and Artemis

Answer: Zeus and Leto

Cronus and Rhea were parents of the original Olympian Gods. Zeus was married to Hera but had an affair with Leto.

13. This god's throne was gray-green marble with pearls and coral. The arms were dolphins and he sat on a sealskin cushion.

From Quiz Gods and Goddesses of Mount Olympus: Thrones

Answer: Poseidon

Poseidon was the god of seas and rivers. He was part of the Big Six: his siblings were Zeus, Hades, Demeter, Hestia, and Hera. He had many wives and many sons, but his main wife was Amphitrite. Poseidon was moody and feared Zeus. Some of his symbols were the trident, the horse, and the dolphin.

14. This Goddess is the patron Goddess of civilization and her main sanctuary is located at the acropolis in Athens.

From Quiz The Traits of the 12 Olympian Gods

Answer: Athena

The Athenian Acropolis is the highest point in Athens. Athena fought with Poseidon to be the patron Goddess of Athens. They had a contest that whoever could deliver the best gift to Athens would win its patronage. Athena gave Athens the olive tree, while Poseidon struck his trident into the ground and gave them a salt water spring. The Athenians decided that the olive tree was more useful than salt water, so Athena won the patronage of the city!

15. From what part of Zeus was Athena born?

From Quiz Athena

Answer: head

Athena's mother was Metis, another goddess. The Fates had decided that, after Athena, Metis would give birth to a son, who would overturn his father, Zeus, from the world's throne. To prevent this from happening, Zeus swallowed(!) Metis, already pregnant with Athena. When the time of the birth came, Zeus had terrible headaches, so he asked Hephestus to tear his head apart with an axe (not a problem when you're immortal!) That's how Athena came out.

16. When the Trojan prince Paris was asked to judge which of three Olympian goddesses was the most beautiful, who did he choose?

From Quiz The Olympians

Answer: Aphrodite

Aphrodite was the goddess of love, beauty and fertility. She was also a protectress of sailors.

17. It is well known that Hera was the wife of Zeus. However, she also had blood ties with Zeus. What was her relationship to him?

From Quiz A Little Quiz on Hera

Answer: a sister

Their father was Cronos, who ate his first five children. Only Zeus avoided the misfortune and later slew his father, thus freeing the first five siblings.

18. Aphrodite has a double tradition concerning her birth. When she is called Aphrodite Urania, who is/are her parents?

From Quiz Aphrodite

Answer: Uranus alone

Aphrodite Urania is the name given to Aphrodite, referring to her emergence from the severed genitals of Uranus, which was thrown into the sea, explaining her association with sea-foam. In this guise, Aphrodite represents love in its spiritual form.

19. After castrating his father, Cronus threw the genitals into the sea. From the foam that they created, Aphrodite was born. Where was she carried to?

From Quiz Aphrodite the Golden

Answer: Cyprus

She was attended by Eros and Himerus when she arose from the foam.

20. Ares hailed from this city, home of a fierce people.

From Quiz Ares: God of War

Answer: Thrace

Thrace was the only city in which Ares was regularly worshipped. In Rome, Mars was associated with agriculture as well as war and offerings were made to him for both victory and fertile crops.

21. Who is Zeus's sister-wife?

From Quiz The Olympian Family of Zeus

Answer: Hera (Juno)

Zeus was the personification of atmospheric phenomena, in particular storms and lightning.

22. Hermes is the son of Zeus and which mountain nymph?

From Quiz Greek God Hermes.

Answer: Maia

Maia was the eldest daughter of Atlas and Pleione, she is also one of the Pleiades, the nymphs turned into stars by Zeus.

23. Who were the three Graces?

From Quiz Just Another Mythology Quiz

Answer: Aglaia, Euphrosyne and Thalia

This Thalia should not be confused with Thalia, the muse of comedy. Clotho (who spun the thread of life), Lachesis (who measured the thread) and Atropos (who cut the thread) represented the Fates. Eunomia (Discipline), Dike (Justice) and Eirene (Peace)were the sisters of the Fates, known as the Horai, goddesses of order and fairness. Erato, Melpomene and Euterpe were Muses, controlling Lyric Poetry, Tragedy and Instrumental Music respectively.

24. Hera is Zeus' wife and sister. Who are her other two brothers?

From Quiz Greek Mythology: Hera and Her Enemies

Answer: Hades and Poseidon

Poseidon is god of the sea and storms. He is also considered a tamer of horses. Two Ancient Greek poets, Hesiod and Homer, both assert that Poseidon became god of the sea when Cronus was overthrown. Cronus and Rhea's eldest son, Hades, is god of the underworld having also gained this title when Cronus was defeated.

25. When Dionysus comes to Thebes, the women go up Mount Cithaeron and worship Dionysus. Why do they do that?

From Quiz Dark Dionysus

Answer: Because they have lost their minds.

When Dionysus arrives in Thebes, the people refuse to acknowledge his divinity, though he has reached manhood. They have slandered his mother, saying she was unchaste and bore him to a mortal. He is offended his own relatives have done this. He mercilessly punishes the kin of his mother.

26. Who was the goddess of the night and the mother of Nemesis?

From Quiz So You Think You Can Compete With An Olympian

Answer: Nyx

Nyx was the goddess of night, and the mother of several deities associated with nighttime or darkness, such as Hypnos, the god of sleep, and Thanatos, the god of death. Nemesis served as the goddess of retaliation to those who were arrogant to the gods. Athena is another Olympian. Pallas is a minor Titan who wields a spear. Therefore the name Pallas Athena means "spear wielding Athena". Mnemosyne was a Titaness who was the mother of the Nine Muses by Zeus.

27. Poseidon was always at loggerheads with which god for power over Olympus, and therefore the world?

From Quiz Peppy Poseidon

Answer: Zeus

Many a time there was a situation where Olympus was at the edge of war simply because the two brothers, Zeus and Poseidon, were fighting over a petty issue such as whether sea disasters were more spectacular than air disasters, or Mother Rhea always liked me better, etc., etc. Scholars debate over which son, Zeus or Poseidon, Mother Rhea saved from Cronus, and thus who was the ACTUAL rightful king of Olympus; according to most, it was Zeus.

28. Dionysus' grandparents, Cadmus and Harmonia, had a memorable wedding. Why were their nuptials special? (Hint: Guests)

From Quiz Dionysus' Family

Answer: It was the first wedding of a mortal attended by the Olympian gods.

Twelve golden thrones were set up at Cadmus' house to receive the majestic Olympians. Among the gifts was the ill-fated Necklace of Harmonia, crafted by Hephaestus' own hand. Unfortunately, he cursed it because Harmonia was Ares' daughter by Hephaestus' wife, Aphrodite. Dionysus' mother was wearing it when she was destroyed by the sight of Zeus in his divine glory.

29. Athena asks: "Who is the Greek god/goddess of lunacy?"

From Quiz Clever Enough for Athena?

Answer: Mania

Athena confides: "Mania is the little known Greek goddess of insanity and madness. Luna is a moon goddess, Dionysus is the god of wine, who turn his enemies into mad dolphins, while Morpheus is the god of sleep. Think you are completely mad? Go to Dionysus with barrels of wine. If he's in a nice mood, he may help you recover."
