Yes, as an Olympian goddess she did. She also lived in the mountains and in forest with her virgin huntresses.
Zeus Zeus is a Greek God, the most powerful one. Zeus' Roman name is Jupiter. Zeus did many things in his lifetimeâ¦â¦â¦â¦ which is forever, because he's immortal. He saved all his siblings, overthrew his father, won the Titanomachy, had over 240 kids and over 155 girlfriends, a…nd chopped his father into pieces with his father's own scythe. Zeus was honored for many things and also known for many things. Zeus was the son to Coronus and Rhea. Coronus was son to Gaea and Uranus. Coronus had overthrown his father, just as Zeus had done to him. Gaea, Coronus' mother, helped Coronus overthrow his father, and Rhea, Zeus' mother, helped him overthrow his father. When Coronus took over the throne, he went to the oracle and heard a prophecy that one of his kids would overthrow him. From then on, every time Rhea gave birth to a child, he would swallow them whole. Then, when Zeus was born, the youngest baby, she hid him in a cave and he was raised by nymphs. Rhea tricked Coronus by wrapping up a rock in a baby blanket and Coronus swallowed the rock instead. Then, when Zeus grew into a man, he gave his father a concoction of wine mixed with mustard. This drink made Coronus throw up his children. Out of his mouth came Hades, Hera, Hestia, Poseidon, and Demeter. This started the Titanomachy war. It was a war between the Olympians and the Titans. Coronus lead the Titans and Zeus led the Olympians. Everyone was able to choose sides. All Titians joined the Titan army, except for one, Prometheus. He hadn't sided with the rest of his family during the Titanomachy, which pays off later. After 10 years of battle, Zeus had lead his team to victory and Zeus had taken over the throne. One thing Zeus was known for was his crucial punishments. Everyone he'd fought against in the war, he threw them in the deepest depths of Tarturus, including his father, by chopping him up with his own scythe. But because Titan Prometheus had not sided with his aunts, uncles, and brother Atlas, Zeus spared him. Zeus then assigned Prometheus the task of forming man from water and earth, which Prometheus did, but in the process, became fonder of men than Zeus had anticipated. Zeus didn't share Prometheus' feelings and wanted to prevent men from having power, especially over fire. Prometheus cared more for man than for the wrath of the increasingly powerful and autocratic king of the gods, so he stole fire from Zeus' lightning, concealed it in a hollow stalk of fennel, and brought it to man. Prometheus also stole skills from Hephaestus and Athena to give to man, such as wisdom and tools. Zeus became furious and gave Prometheus a treacherous punishment. He placed Prometheus on a mountainside and tied him there. Then, each day, and eagle would come and eat his immortal liver which would grow back each night. Then after Prometheus was freed by Hercules, Zeus let him go about and gave him another chance, only to be tricked by him again. Prometheus benefited mankind when Zeus and he were developing the ceremonial forms for animal sacrifice. The astute Prometheus devised a sure-fire way to help man. He divided the slaughtered animal parts into two packets. In one was the ox-meat and innards wrapped up in the stomach lining. In the other packet were the ox-bones wrapped up in its own rich fat. One would go to the gods and the other to the humans making the sacrifice. Prometheus presented Zeus with a choice between the two, and Zeus took the deceptively richer appearing: the fat-encased, but inedible bones. With this, Zeus once again had been tricked, but then again, he couldn't get mad because he was the one who chose it. This is assumed to be the reason why bones and scraps of dinner servings are offered unto gods, and people eat the meat and fat of the animal. Zeus had many kids and girlfriends. All gods are able to morph their form and turn into mortals, and mate with them. Then if they have kids, their kids are half god and half mortal. They would call these kids demigods. Zeus also married his sister, the goddess of marriage, Hera. Every time Zeus would get a new girlfriend, Hera, out of jealousy, would find a way to get even. She would poison them, light their house on fire, or even kill them. When Hera would get revenge she showed people not to mess with her "hubby", the hard way. Many of the gods and goddesses were Zeus' kids. Ares, the god of war, was the child of Zeus and Hera. Apollo and Artemis were the twins of Zeus and a mortal named Leto. Most people think that Athena was born through normal birth like the other gods and goddesses, but actually, that's not what happened. One day, Zeus had an excruciating headache. Nobody knew why. Then after a few months, out of Zeus' head popped Athena, the goddess of wisdom. She was a fully grown woman and was dressed in full armor. The only other goddess that wasn't born through normal birth was Aphrodite, the goddess of love. She came out of the ocean in a pearl, also fully grown. Hephaestus was also the son to Zeus and Hera By, Andrew Handal (MORE)
She, with her brother Apollo, and father Zeus, are of the twelve Olympians, it is imagined that when something is happening upon the world, they watch and listen and decide what will happen; granted that they must have some interest in the events.
its because god is in the sky so other gods and goddesses want to go there too im not sure this is a right answer . its my opinion . post other opinions here now.
You have to get Hercules to help you, and he won't until after Zeus has the five sacred items. Go with Hercules to see Poseidon and Hades, and then come back so he can smash open the lock on the gate. On the trail, use the drachma from the Temple of Hades to buy a windbag from Aeolus.
You must be a blood of a god to enter the gates. If you are mortal, then you must pray to them, worship them. That is what mortals did when they were on earth so they could be sent up to mount Olympus know to most people as Heaven. Just as the Underworld is Hell.
You have to talk to Hades and Poseidon after you get Hercules on your side. Then, after you get the two weapons (The Trident and the Helm of Darkness) He'll break the lock. Then you use the Drachma to buy a Wind Bag from Aeolus and fly up. If you miss, he'll give you a free refill.
You can only get through the gate with the help of Hercules. You have to collect the five sacred items, and Zeus will steal them. Then you go with Hercules to see Poseidon and Hades, and then you can open the gate.
It is in Greece, home of the 12 Olympians (God and Godesses) 2,9191 meters tall.

No, they are not As real as any other god. Of course they don't! They are just a myth. Though some peoplestill believe in them, they're NOT real. That's exactly like saying that Jesus wasn't real, thatGod/Allah/Buddha isn't real, that the God and the Goddess don'texist. By saying that the Olymp…ians do not exist, you arecritcising a belief that, in fact, used to be a major religion. I for one, believe that the Olympians exist. They may be part of amythology, but that doesn't make them fictional creatures. Watchwhat you say... They are mythological gods. They don't exist. People build houseson Mt. Olympus and live there and climb it. Are there any gods? No!Also Greek Mythology says Olympus reaches the heavens, it isn'teven as tall as Mt. Everest! (MORE)
you get hurcules to open it but first you need to get the five sacred items and go to Athena
ok the truth is you never get the key. you open it another way. what you have to do is get all five items then you go back to the tree of immortality and then something will happen but i dont want to spoil it for you :) then you go back to Hercules and he will help you. first you have to go to the u…nderwater cave and then the underworld. Hercules will help yo see zues brothers and they will give you something then once you have those things Hercules will get you in the mount Olympus. hope this helps (MORE)
Gaia didn't build it. After the Cyclopes where freed from Tartarus they created Mt. Olympus
It constantly travels, so it could be anywhere. It was in North America a few years ago, but that could have quickly changed.
A: He flies in a magic chariot B: He turns into his real godly form and lets the wind gods carry him C: Walks
You must first buy the wind bag, after getting the coin. You may get free wind refills. You have to jump from rock to rock, and then light the statues up all the way. And then Zeus will appear. If you don't know how to unlock the gate, you must get Hercules' help. He will break the lock. He will be… frozen to stone but just walk on. (MORE)
After you get the 5 sacred items (the flower, the ring, the pearl, the scale and the whisker) and return them to the Tree of Immortality, you find that Zeus is only using you to gain power. Go to Herc's Hero Hut and now Hercules will agree to help you. You will need the Touchscreen Mirror from the …test by Aphrodite, on the beach in Poseidon's realm. Travel to Hades and get his skull crown, then to Poseidon and get his trident. Now you can return to the gate of Olympus, where Hercules will smash the padlock open. *You will also need the one drachma from cleaning graffiti at the Temple of Hades. (MORE)
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!!!
Mount Olympus is located on top of the Empire State Building in New York. It is mentioned several times in the Percy Jackson books that it is on the 600th floor.
Now im not very sure, but according to some research im doing for an assignment, i found out that most of the time she wasn't on mt. Olimpus, because she was the goddess of spring. she needed to be with the world to make it better. the other months where things were not being harvested and planted, …she was with hades in the underworld.

The actual mountain, it is reasonable to suspect, does have seasonal snow - if perhaps rarely.
No; its not mythical either. See link? These stuff are from Wiki Answery: Hey, it is mythical and all! Ok, so maybe the gods were not real ( just MAYBE ) , but that does not mean that they were not mythical! Oh, and to the person who asked the nice question: To Greek people, probably yes, becaus…e that is what they probably believe in. And if you are American, and if you read Percy Jackson books, and if you believe in them, oh well, you can go to Mount Olympus. (MORE)
You just go to the water place and make sure you have the little star fish and go right and put the star fish on the little holder. Then go left and talk to the goddess who has roses in her hair. Finish the test and you'll get a mirror that will teleport you.
It's a shape of a tall mountain, or you could just say whatever youlike, after all, it's not real.
In Greek mythology, Mount Olympus was formed and inhabited by theGreek gods. Since this mountain is over 1,000 years old, we canestimate that it was discovered in the B.C. time era.

I am assuming that you meant 'made', not 'mad'. Anyway, it is probably Hestia, goddess of the hearth.
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.

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)
