Medusa was born a Gorgon.
Medusa got turned into a gorgon because the gods got angry at her
Medusa went into Athene's temple and Poseidon was spying on her and then Poseidon raped her in front of Athene so Athene got furious and said the that wasn't going to happen again so Athene turned Medusa into a gorgon because she said that it was Medusa's fought.Then Athene found out that Medusa had two sisters so Athene said that Medusa's sisters were probably are going to do the something so she turned then into gorgon. Medusa was probably 25 years old when she was turned into a ugly gorgon
Medusa didn't just 'go out' with Poseidon. They had sex in Athena's temple (which is greatly disrespectful, also considering that Athena is one of the three virgin goddesses). So, she got mad and turned Medusa into a gorgon. That is why Medusa hates Athena.
Medusa was a follower of the virgin goddess Athena, and her workers were to remain virgins. However, Medusa, being quite beautiful, was raped by the god of the sea Poseidonin the temple of Athena. Poseidon was not blamed, however, Medusa was, and because of that, Athena turned her and her sisters into Gorgons
First of all, Medusa is a gorgon, not a goegon. Medusa wasn't always an ugly monster. In fact, she was one of the most beautiful person in the world. Poseidon was in love with her and one day, Athena found them in her temple. She got mad and since she couldn't do anything to Poseidon, she turned Medusa into the ugly gorgon you have now.
No- she did date the god of the sea before she got turned into a monster though.
he was born from the blood that spurted from the neck of the gorgon medusa when she got beheaded by perseus.
first thing, Medusa is not a goddess of Greek She dated with Poseidon and went to Athena's temple and Athena got mad and turned her into gorgon or something and she can turn people into stones by eye you looking at her and she has 2 sisters and she has snake hair
Athena Goddess of Intelligent War turned Medusa into a gorgon because she was a nymph that was having an affair with Poseidon God of the Sea. You see Medusa and Poseidon decided to meet inside Athena's temple. They had sex and Athena got angry and since Medusa had her sisters help her gain entrance to the temple Athena transformed them as well, but only Medusa was given immortality so she had to watch her sisters grow old and die.
Medusa was always a goddess called Medusa, if she was a goddess Athena only cursed her.
medusa turned people into stone so yeah...
I should probably put the story here, or else my answer won't make sense. The story of Medusa: Medusa used to be a beautiful girl. She was a girlfriend of Poseidon, the God of The Seas. One day, Medusa and Poseidon were making out on the floor of one of Athena's temples. Athena realised what was happening, and got mad. She turned Medusa's lovely curls into writhing little snakes, and put a curse on Medusa: whoever looked at Medusa in the eyes will turn into stone. Therefore, Athena turned Medusa into a Gorgon. The explanation: um...never mess with a goddess??
She is a Gorgon, Gorgons are women that are hediousley revolting and ugly from being cursed, Like Medusa, she used to be a beautiful woman but then she got cursed by a goddess and transformed into an ugly, evil snake-haired woman.
Poseidon was in Athena's temple with Medusa. At that time, Medusa was beautiful. Athena caught them and got furious. Then she turned Medusa ugly with snake hair.
no..... Medusa and Poseidon were having an affair in Athena's temple and Athena got mad so she turned Medusa into a hideous creature.
The nymph Medusa was having an affair with Poseidon and they arranged to meet in Athena's temle. Athena got very angry when she found that they had used her temple for this so she turned Medusa and her sisters, who had helped them, into gorgons.
Medusa didn't actually hate people, she hated men. She was raped by Poseidon, god of sea, that was seen by Athena. Athena hated Medusa for it even though it was not her fault, but she still got cursed by Athena. That's why Medusa hates men, because she got turned ugly, turns people to stone with her eyes and got raped by a man. If I was Medusa, I would also hate men.
Snakes for hair and looking at her turned people to stone.Those are the points I remember from kids books, at least... If you looked directly at her eyes, you turned to stone.Answer 2:Medusa was a priestess of Athena's. She had an affair with Poseidon in Athena's temple. Athena's revenge was to turn Medusa into that terrible-looking monster.medusa had got raped my posesiden at the temple.
She got cursed by her because mudusa said she was preetier then aphrodite and she heard that mudusa said that . That is how mudusa was turned to a crature and curesd
Medusa was turned into a monster by Goddess Athena. Medusa is and evil monster which has got a power to turn people into stone with her big, piercing eyes. She is a monster even though when she was younger she was an arrogant and beautiful lady which men would fight over. She has got a son whose name is Zytan.
Medusa was a beautiful woman who got on the nerves of one of the goddesses. the goddess turned her ugly so that anyone who looked at her would instantly turn to stone
The reason Medusa turns people into stone is because she used to be super beautiful so she made out with Poseidon and were making out in Athena's temple, and Athena got angry and turned Medusa into a creepy snake head lady
For one thing, they competed on who would be the patron god or goddess of Athens. Athena created a olive tree, and Poseidon created a saltwater spout. Athena won, and the competition obviously created some tension.In addition, Medusa was Poseidon's girlfriend, and they had arranged to "meet" in Athena's temple. This enraged Athena, and she turned Medusa into the snake- haired petrify-you-at-a-glance Medusa we commonly think of.Medusa is a gorgon. Her two sisters were immortal, scaly creatures, while she was beautiful and mortal, until Athena got mad at her (see above).
Medusa was originally mortal. She was just so exceptionally beautiful that men and gods were attracted to her, and specifically Poseidon. Medusa, being a priestess, was praying in Athena's temple when Poseidon raped her. Athena, who was in love with Poseidon at the time, was furious and outraged , so she had put the Gorgon curse on Medusa. So this way if she ever looked into the eyes of her lover he would turn to stone. This gave her the stare of the Gorgon on her aegis turns their minds figuratively to stone, a kind of mental paralysis sets in. Their thinking becomes calcified and rigid, robbed of the flexibility to see clearly. In this intellectual stupor. This is also how she got the reptilian hair. As a side note it was also said that Medusa originally had dreadlocks when she was mortal.
Poseidon was a player he cheated on his wives several times such as Medusa Athene got jealous and then turned her into the horrendous monster she is
