His daughters, the Oceanids, were the nymphs of the River Ocean, and his sons were lords of all the rivers of earth.

There was no god of time. There was a titan of time, though. He was Kronos.
Khronos [in Greek: Î§ÏÏÎ½Î¿Ï= time] was the Protogenos (primeval god) of time, a divinity who emerged self-formed at the beginning of creation in the Orphic cosmogonies. Khronos was imagined as an incorporeal god, serpentine in form, with three heads--that of a man, a bull, and a lio…n. He and his consort, serpentine Anange (Inevitability), circled the primal world-egg in their coils and split it apart to form the ordered universe of earth, sea and sky. Khronos and Anange continued to circle the cosmos after creation-their passage driving the circling of heaven and the eternal passage of time. The figure of Khronos was essentially a cosmological doubling of the Titan Kronos . (MORE)
The gods in Greek Mythology were just legends. Such as Atlas the god that held the earth and sky, and Zeus the god of all gods.
Books on this subject are several hundred pages long. You cannot expect that much information in this space.
There are chief gods and goddesses that play a role on Mythology Island. . Zeus - "king of the gods" is seen as upset with sharing power with his "brothers" Hades and Poseidon, to the point of writing graffiti on their temples and scheming to seize total power . Athena - daughter of Athena, but… opposes his plans. The olive branches (peace) are links to her helpful advice. . Hercules - the demi-god is offering autographs in his food court. It is not until Zeus threatens to control all of Poptropican Greece that he decides to help . Hades - ruler of the Underworld. His monster guard dog Cerberus holds one of the Sacred Items (a whisker) . Poseidon - ruler of the sea. His realm contains the giant pearl and the Hydra cave (a scale from the Hydra is one of the Five Items). . Aphrodite - goddess of beauty. She is in the realm of Poseidon and offers you a useful tool, a Mirror that can transport you throughout the four realms. Other mythological individuals and creatures : a satyr, the Minotaur, the Sphinx (Greek legend), the Hydra, and Cerberus, guardian of the underworld. (MORE)
Zeus is the god of wind he is the god of the sky and he holds the most powerful weapon in the world the master thunder bolt
No, actually it's spelled and said Kronos of Cronus. Answer 2: No, sorry, that is all wrong. Cratos ("strength") is the personification of strength and power. He is the brother of Nike, Zelus and Bia. Like his other siblings, he is a constant companion of Zeus.
They are the hierarchy. There were gods before them, the titans, but they pratically banned them forever.

The closest I know to an ice god is Khione, Greek Goddess of the Snow I think I spelled her name wrong...
The main god of Greek mythology would be Zeus, the king of the gods. for he is ruler of heaven and earth. he is also king of the world.
In greek mythology the chief god was Zeus god of the sky and of thunder because he wielded around a thunderbolt. Apollo is considered to be chief of the Greek Gods. There are a fewmore Greek Gods.
Hepestus is the greek god of fire and black smiths so i would say him
Khaos is the oldest god in Greek mythology. Well it depends on what your talking about, the daughter of Cronus, Hera , is the oldest
I'll name a few. First we have the twelve Olympian gods. Hephaestus, Aphrodite, Hermes, Dionysus, Apollo, Artemis, Hera, Athena, Ares, and the last three, aka the big three - Zeus, Poseidon, & Hades. Those are the 12 most comonly known Greek gods and godesses of mythology. There are some more of cou…rse, Hestia, Hypnos, etc. One of the most complete listings of the ancient Greek deities is provided at the site Theoi Greek Mythology. Link below. (MORE)
The 12 major gods were Zeus, Hera, Hephaestus, Ares, Athena, Demeter, Aphrodite, Poseidon, Apollo, Hermes, Artemis, Hades, and Hestia who was later replaced by Dionysus.
No, he wasn't. He was a very vain, handsome youth who fell in love with himself.
Major Gods: Zeus, Posedion, Hera, Demeter, Ares, Athena, Artemis, Apollo, Hephaestus, Aphrodite, Dionysus, Hermes (Hades) (not an olympian) (Each god(ess) has many stories. [if i were to list them all, this would be about 80 pgs long.]
Technically, it was Zeus. Zeus was the oldest son of Cronus, a Titan. Zeus saved his siblings after they were eaten by their father. However, there were the Sky and the Earth (there are specific names but I forget what they are).
The primeval gods (the Protogenoi) were the fundamental components of the universe which emerged at creation. The first was Chaos, quickly followed by Gaia (Earth), Tartaros (the Underworld) and Eros (Love). This is an alphabetical list of the Protogenoi: . Aither - the mists of light . Ananke… - necessity . Chaos - lower air . Chronos - time . Erebus - darkness . Eros - love . Gaia - earth . Hemera - day . Hydros - water . Nesoi - islands . Nyx - night . Oceanus - fresh water . Ourea - mountains . Phanes - generation . Phusis - nature . Pontus - the sea . Tartarus - the Underworld . Tethys - flowing water . Thalassa - the sea's surface . Thesis - creation . Uranus - heaven (MORE)
Yes the gods and goddesses have their own temples so Greeks could go and worship them and ask for help.
There was no god of gravity since the Greeks did not know about gravity. Atlas kind of acted like gravity by holding the earth up. He was not a god, but a Titan.
A god in Greek mythology is an immortal, normally each god has his/her own sphere of control.
Zeus, king of the gods, the god of sky and weather, law, order and fate.
Triton was the herald of the sea, specifically his mother, Amphitrite. the son of poseidon
what is you mean well it's about the god's and goddess and how they lived and what good and bad thing's they did.
This is an interesting question, because while the gods and goddesses were generally regarded as omnipotent, there was a definite "fastest" among them, and it was Hermes. Second to him would have been Iris. They were the messengers of the gods, and were expected to be expedient. Hermes was also the …god of travelers and thieves, both of which imply a need to be hasty. (MORE)
It is probably Zeus. King of the gods and ruler of Mount Olympus; god of the sky and thunder. Youngest child of the Titans Cronus and Rhea. Brother and husband of Hera, although he had many lovers.
In Greek mythology Apollo was attributed as the god of the sun but was also known for variably being the god of music, light, poetry, plague, and oracles.
The Greek gods didn't have symbols the way you are probably thinking of them. There is always a certain amount of iconography associated with religion, but they didn't have anything like the "Cross" or "Star of David" that applied to specific gods. Instead, the gods had items that were generally ass…ociated when them - such as the peacock to Hera, or the Laurel to Apollo. (MORE)
