Theory 1 Medusa was a beatiful mortal that poseidon fell in love with. Her sisters helped her and Poseidon sneak into Athena's temple to make out . When Athena found out, she went into a rage. Not beingable to punish Poseidon, she punished Medusa and her sisters by making them absolutely hideous for the rest of eternity. theory 2 Medusa asked Athena for something and she wouldn't give it to her. So Medusa said she was prettier than Athena. Athena knew that the mortal needed punishment, and she soon found out that Medusa had to gorgon half sisters, so she made Medusa a gorgon as well.
One reason was that they both wanted Athens. Poseidon gave them spring, Athena gave them olive trees. The people of Athens picked Athena. Another reason for them hating each other is that Athena caught Poseidon with his current girlfriend, Medusa, in her temple. Feeling insulted, she cursed Medusa so nobody could love her again.
Medusa was actually a very pretty woman at first. She was a priestess of Athena, all of whom had to take a vow never to love, get married or have children. one day Poseidon came to the temple to see Medusa and ended up raping her. Athena was angered, but not at Poseidon. as a fellow god, in her eyes, he could do no wrong. she was angry at Medusa. in a moment of rage, Athena cursed Medusa to be not only ugly, but so ugly that anyone who should gaze upon her eyes would be turned to stone. and then Athena banished her to live out the rest of her life at the edge of the River that is the entireness to the underworld.

Usually the story is that Medusa was an Athena priestess, who once made love to Poseidon in Athena's temple. In revenge Athena turned Medusa into something as ugly as possible. Another Answer: Because she was making love in a temple that belonged to Athena and in rage Athena turned Medusa's hair into snakes, or Medusa bragged about her hair and Hera, out of jealousy, turned her hair into snakes. Whatever makes sense to you. Yet Another Answer: Medusa once informed Athena that Snakes were more Fair(more beautiful) than Athena herself in order to spite her. In a fit of rage Athena damned Medusa to become that which she held so high.
medusa used to be the most beutiful girl in greek mythology and made love with poseidon in athenas tempale so Athena turned her and her two sisters to gorgals medusa was a mortal
Medusa was a nice young teenager who had fallen in love with the sea god Poseidon. They wanted a safe place to talk and found an empty temple and started to kiss. They knew it was Athena's temple but they didn't know that Athena was watching them from the skies. Athena was so angry she turned Medusa into a monster that could look at people in the eyes and turn them to stone. When Medusa looked at Poseidon he got frightened and ran away but didn't turn to stone because Poseidon was immortal. Afterwards she lived with her sisters Stethano and Eurayle who had also turned ugly over the years and slept until Perseus killed her.
She turned Medusa into a monster as a punishment for sneaking out with the sea god Poseidon in Athena's temple, thereby desecrating it.
She had two sisters, Stheno and Euryale, who she lived with. She was also in love with Poseidon before Athena cursed her and made her a monster.
No; in some myths Poseidon is the father of Athena, and Zeus her adopted father.
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.
Medusa isn't a Greek Goddess, and she doesn't have any powers, except if you mean the 'turn into stone when you look her in the eye' thing. That was only a curse by Athena because Medusa and Poseidon were making love in one of Athena's temples, and Athena is a virgin goddess.
