Actually, Medusa wasn't a goddess. She was a human who got caught with Poseidon in Athena's temple and when Athena found out, she cursed Medusa and her two sisters to become gorgons. Whenever someone would look at these women, they would turn to stone.

Medusa wasn't a goddess. She was one of the three Gordons. However unlike the others, Medusa was human to start with. She began as a mortal, very beautiful. Her beauty captured the attention of the god Poseidon. He raped her in the temple of Athena. Of course that angered the great Athena and so she cursed Medusa to become the terrifying creature was famously known for. Honestly, Medusa didn't deserve her punishment. But fate was cruel.

No, Rhea was not Medusa. Rhea was a Titan. Medusa was a Gorgon.

Poseidon was Medusa's boyfriend and they were hanging out in Athena's temple. Then Athena turned Medusa into Medusa.

She was a winged human female, with a hideous face and venomous snakes in place of hair

Medusa was not a goddess; she was killed by the hero Perseus. Medusa was a gorgon.

Medusa means "queen" or "guardian".

No, Medusa is not a constellation.

Medusa was once human. However she was raped by Poseidon in the temple of Athena. Athena solely punished Medusa for her beauty by turning her into the hideous creature she was famous for. The gods were capable of doing such cruel acts to mortals and think they were rightly justified. We might not agree though.

Medusa was called Medusa... She had two sisters; Euryale and Stheno. They were the three Gorgons. Euryale and Stheno were immortal. Medusa was not.

Medusa was always a goddess called Medusa, if she was a goddess Athena only cursed her.

medusa and her gorgon sisters were nymphs posiedon was "dating" medusa athena caught them in her temple and turned medusa and her sisters into gorgons

Medusa, which is her name, was a human, and born that way. It was the Goddess Athena that cursed her to look that way.
