It's a volcano, created by the pressure of the earth pushing outwards. if you follow the ancient greek myth then the titans who rules prior to the olmpians (zues, hera, hercules, etc) made it as a seat of power to look down apon the earth when they were wreaking havoc. is this true or not? none ca…n really say.

Mount Olympus is a mountain in Greece. By some, it is believed to be the home of the Ancient Greek Gods and Goddesses. On the top, it is believed the Olympians have their meetings (one at the Summer Solstice, one at the Winter Solstice).
The Olympian gods were a group of 12: Zeus Poseidon Hades Ares Apollo Hermes Hephaestus
it is 1000 ft high So if a mile is 5,280 feet, the mountain is less than one fifth of a mile high, or .18939 of a mile.
Mount Olympus is 9,573 feet high and is the highest mountain inGreece and second highest mountain in the Balkans.
It is the mountain which was the earthly representation of the palace in the sky which was the home of Zeus, the king of the Gods, and many other gods had quarters there.
All the time that the Greek believed in their gods, i.e. from time immemorial until Christianity took over about the 4th century AD.
Zeus, Hera, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Ares, Hermes, Dionysus, Aphrodite, Poseidon, Hephaestus, Demeter, are the major gods and goddesses and the gods who had thrones on Mt. Olympus. Other gods and goddesses like Hestia, lived on Mt. Olympus but did not have thrones.
That is what the myths tell us. . Only the Olympic Gods "lived" on Mt Olympos in Greek Mythology. There was a constant need for the balance of Olympus to be maintained, so additional deities were usually ordered as such, including Hestia, Goddess of the Hearth and Home, who was eligible and rightf…ul to Olympus, but having upset the balance of Gods to Goddesses, she was not considered an Olympic God, and gave it up on her will, as to her it seemed more vital to dwell in the hearth and home. And even the Deities didnt stay on Olympos all the time- Artemis, the Goddess of the Hunt, was always one to go on hunts in the wilderness,and represented hunting and the movements of animals in these aspects, Apollo had a holy place near Delphi,Poseidon dealt with the seas, so often he was in the sea, and representative of the sea. Often all the Deities were not assembled unless it was a full-fledged call of Zeus to "come to order".You can also see how often the deities were not constantly on Olympos, rather being representative and of what they were.

Medusa didnt excactly have a role. She was a monster so the Olympians hated her. But when Perseus (Greek Hero) slayed Medusa he sent it to Mt. Olympus.

mt olympus is a fictional setting where the greek gods and goddesses lived. It is also the tallest peak in Greece and one of the tallest in Europe.
The same way all mountains are formed. There is no myth regarding the creation of Mt. Olympus.
Zeus was one of the Olympian gods, and all the Olympian gods livedon Mt. Olympus. There were twelve Olympians. They were: Zeus, Hera,Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Ares, Aphrodite,Hephaestus, Hermes, and Dionysus. Hades was not considered one of the twelve Olympians, even thoughhe is on…e of the major gods because he was not allowed on Olympusexcept on the winter solstice, the darkest day of the year.

Geia was the universe, mostley the earth a goddess whose son and husband Uranus (a little awkward) had a son; Cronos who had hestiesta, posiedon, hades, Demeter and hera (later zeuses wife) He swallowed them all, then Rhea (his wife) had Zeus and gave him to some sheaperds and showed cronos a rock… in some clothes which he swallowed (a prophesy said cronos will be killed by his child for killing uranus). later Zeus was brought back to Olympus by rhea and he and she made a mixture that they gave to Cronos who promptly threw up Zeus's siblings (being gods they hadn't been digested) who elected Zeus as their leader, they then started a war with the titans and people like that and won tada (MORE)
unless you count zeus's rotating lovers there were 12, if you do there were 14 or 15
Mt. Olympus was said to be where the gods lived because in Greek times that mountain was very high up and unseen most times because of clouds so they decided that was the place of the gods.
ICARUS Your description doesn't exactly match any single Greek legend. . Icarus' father Daedalus made wings out of feather's and wax so that he and Icarus could escape from the island of Crete. Against his father's warnings he flew too close to the sun and the wax melted sending Icarus falling… to his death. . The Greek Hero Bellerophon rode the winged horse Pegasus up Mount Olympus and got hit by a lightening bolt from Zeus for his presumptuousness. He didn't die however but lived the rest of his life as a simpleton and a fool . The Titan Prometheus stole fire from the sun to give to man. Zeus punished him by chaining him to a rock and having an eagle eat out his liver every day. . Ixion was invited by Zeus to be a guest in Olympia. There Ixion breached hospitality rules by trying to have six with Zeus' wife. For this offense Zeus bound Ixion to an burning and ever-spinning wheel and cast him down to Hades. (MORE)
Ok, well the cyclops built three stuff for the top 3 gods: For Zeus: Lightning, Poseidon: An all-powerful trident, Hades: an invisible helm, Baisically, cyclops is your answer
The answer can vary, but generally the Olympians are viewed as: Zeus Hera Apollo Artemis Ares Aphrodite Poseidon Dionysos Hermes Athena Demeter Hephaestos Pluto (Hades) never had a throne on Olympus and Hestia gave her seat to Dionysos.
He has a seat there, but usually spends his days working in his smithy. It often thought to be under Mt Etna.
Philotes is not often counted among the Olympians, but she is likeAphrodite and so might be counted among Aphrodite's helpers.
No not all Greek God's live on Mount Olympus. There are minor gods like Hestia and Janus. They do not live on Mount Olympus, only the major 12 do.
A: He flies in a magic chariot B: He turns into his real godly form and lets the wind gods carry him C: Walks

He lived on Mount Olympus because Kronos lived on the biggestmountain in Greece Mount Othrys. But when they destroyed it Zeusdecided to make another Kingdom on the next much smaller mountain.Mount Olympus!!!
Not long at all like three minutes because they could fly or Zeus kids just wished them self's up to it.
Mt, Olympus was built like all the other mountains in the world. The mountains shape up naturally. If you want more information, go on the internet or something.

As Apollo is one of the Twelve Olympian ruling gods; he was welcome on Mt. Olympus.
He is not Olympian, Hades dwells in the Underworld by preference rather then the lofty heights of Olympus.
Hades, The god of the Underworld. He was never allowed to enter Olympus except when invited by Zeus for important matters.
he ddidnt like canadians. and they were taking all over the woirld so he went there to be safe
You have to get the drachma from the guy in the underworld and give it to the guy that sells you the bag of wind.
The Cyclopes didn't "build" Mt. Olympus. It's a mountain. It simply existed. The palaces on the mountain, though, were built by Hephaestus, and made from precious metals.
May be because the mythologic fact is he was thrown out mt olympus, I love greek
Many variations of this myth. Some say Hera through him off Olympus and Zeus covered for her but the general idea is that it is because Hephaestus was not pretty and the Olympian Gods were generally really vain. Meaning that they valued looks, Hephaestus was ugly therefore he was thrown from a mount…ain. There are different variations of course but this is the one I'm familiar with. (MORE)
