Why did Zeus toss Hephaestus out of Olympus?
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 mountain. There are different variations of course but this is the one I'm familiar with.

Zeus tried to seduce Aphrodite, but she refused him. Then Zeus forced Aphrodite to marry Hephaestus.
In one legend, I am not sure of it's origin, Hera threw Hephaestus off of Mount Olympus, because she was so shocked of how ugly he was. Another legend, from Homer's The Iliad suggests that Zues threw Hephaestus off of Mount Olympus when Hephaestus tried to help Hera, against Zeus's wishes.
yes he was punished by Zues, and he was punished for stealing fire and giving it to humans, and his punishment was to be chained to a rock and have a vulture peck at his guts every day for all eternity, but then Atlas saved him, though i am not sure how

Hephaestus was born lame and Hera wanted to hide him so threw him into Ocenaus.
He was the king of the gods. He had to make sure no overthrows him, the monsters don't eat the humans, the titans don't appear again, he has to make sure the sky doesn't fall down because Atlas was to lazy to hold it up, he also has to keep on making plans on luring his bossy sister/wife away from M…t.

Zeus Zeus was born in 700 BC. He became the Greek God of heaven and earth by picking straws with his siblings. He got the shorter one. When he was born, his father tried to eat him but his mother switched him with a rock and he survived. Zeus was raised by his grandparents and when he was 20 h…e came back to fight his father, Cronus who was a Titan. His weapon became the thunder bolt ,the most powerful weapon in the universe. Zeus is the ruler of all gods and he had a very interesting life. In the year 700 BC Zeus was believed to be born on Mount Ida, the island of creation. He was the youngest of all the main gods his father had ate all of the his brothers and sisters. When Zeus was born Cronus tried to eat him but Zeus mother Rhea gave Cronus a rook and told him that it was Zeus so Cronus eat the rock and was satisfied. Meanwhile Zeus was being raised by his grandparents and when he was 20 he came back to rebel on his father. He tricked his father into drinking a liquid that made Cronus barf and all of his brothers and sisters came out the then picked straws to determine who would be king. He assigned all of his brothers a job and their weapon. To Poseidon, he gave a trident and told him that he was god of the sea and of the wind. For Hades, Zeus tricked into being lord of the underworld where all of the dead go. He gave him the weapon of a two-pronged fork to scatter all that comes in his way. He gave Hera the power to turn all bad to good so that she never had to fight. At last, he gave himself a lighting bolt the strongest weapon on earth, to control the heavens and earth. Zeus' home is Mount Olympus, which he and the other gods made. Almost all of the gods live there except for Hades and some other minor gods. Most people think that the Olympus floating castle. In fact, it sits on top of a mountain. In Greek Territory and is also home to many types of life.

HÄphaistos is the son of HÄra alone in most myths. She was enraged that Zeus was giving birth on his own (Dionysos, AthÄna,...) so she did the same. When she saw her child was misshapen (he wa slame on one leg) she threw him off Olympos. Later he tricked HÄra and caught her in a net, onl…y letting her out if she allowed him to return to Olympos and assume his place as Olympian. (MORE)
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.
May be because the mythologic fact is he was thrown out mt olympus, I love greek
In some legends it wasn't Hera- it was Zeus. However the story goes that when Hera gave birth Zeus was so angry that the son by his actual wife was so deformed and ugly that he took the baby, in his anger and hurled him down Mount Olympus. How did Hera( or Zeus) through him off? She/ he lifted him u…p and chucked him. I am guessing that you are talking about when Hephaestus was a baby. Unless you are talking about when he was older and still ugly anf was sent down off Mount Olympus to his forge. In this case Hera was the goddess of Marriage, the goddess of unions in a way. This meant she had special powers in the way that she could manipulate others' feelings. So she manipulated Hephaestus' feelings (and Zeus') and Hephaestus was left in his forge. Hephaestus probably wasn't against this. He prefered to interact with metal rather than people and so he was perfectly happy to be left alone with his creations. I hope this was what you were looking for! My sources are: I study Ancient Greek Myths at Oxford (MORE)
