Ancient Greek Gods for Kids


The ancient Greeks believed in a great many gods. They told stories about their gods. These stories are called myths (short for mythology, or stories about gods.)  Each storyteller in ancient Greece told the stories in his own way, but whatever power and personality a god had was consistent from story to story. For example, Zeus was the king of all the gods, and only Zeus could throw lightning bolts.

The magical world of the ancient Greek gods was a world full of bickering and fights and wars and compromise and fear and fun and punishment and love. Many Greek myths were based on the fact that gods, like mortal men, could be punished or rewarded for their actions.
