You think you know a story, but you only know how it ends.
To get to the heart of the story, you have to go back to the beginning...
Needed: Metis (a short, but very important role), Aphrodite, Demeter, and more!
The Greek gods were known to meddle in the lives of mortals. They had scandalous affairs, unleashed curses, and orchestrated wars that decimated populations.
But what happened before that?
Hesiod speaks of the beginnings of the Greek pantheon, the start of the reign of the Olympians. The sons of Kronos drew lots to divide the cosmos, and each established his reign over a third of the world. Zeus had two wives before Hera, and numerous liaisons that were soon over. What happened to Metis? And Themis? What of Mnemosyne, and Eurynome, and Demeter? What led Poseidon to take the Sea Goddess Amphitrite to wife? And how did Persephone catch Hades' eye?
Well, we are about to find out...
