Athena, Artemis, Zeus, Posiedon, Hera, Hermes, Ares, Aphrodite, Hephaestus, Dionysus (Hestia gave up her throne to him but she is still considered an Olympian in some lists), Apollo and Demeter.

Hades is the god of the underworld (with his wife Persephone,daughter of Demeter) and is the brother of Posiedon and Zeus.

Cupid is the son of Ares and Aphrodite even though Aphrodite is married to Hephaestus.

There were many different Greek gods and goddesses but the 12 Olympians (some will say 14 so ill put them all on here) were hestia, Demeter, dionysus, hades, Apollo, ares, Hermes, hephaestus, Zeus, poseidon, aphrodite, artermis, Athena, and hera

The gods and goddesses in Greek mythology are sorta like human, because they have human qualituies, i.e thay loves, fought ect like humans, but the difference was that they were immortal.

There were ALOT of gods and goddesses in Greek mythology, like hundreds! But there were 12 who were the main ones and the others were just minor gods or goddesses. The twelve were called the Olympians, cuz they lived in a Palace on the tallest mountain in Greece, month Olympus. They all were descened from Kronos, this Titan dude who used to reign before the gods took over

The Twelve were:

1. Zeus, king of the gods, god of the Sky, Kronos's son

2. Hera, Queen of the gods, goddess of marriage, love, family and childbirith. She was Zeus's husband

3. Athena, goddess of wisdom and warfare, child of Zeus with some other chick called Metis. she's a virgin goddess

4. Aphrodite, goddess of love and beauty, wife of Hephaestus and sometimes regareded as Zeus's daughter with someone called Dione

5. Ares - god of war, son of Zeus and Hera and was usally sleeping with Aphrodite

6. Hephaestus, god of fire and the forges, Aphrodite's husband, but she didn;'t like him cuz he was UGLY

7. Artemis - goddess of the hunt, young girls and the moon and also a virgin goddess, daughter of Zeus and Leto and twins with Apollo

8. Apollo - god of the sun, medicine, music, prophosies and oracles, twin of Artemis

9. Hermes - god of Theives, travellers and roads, son of -- surprise, surprise -- Zeus and some OTHER chick named Maia

10.Demter - goddess of agroculture and nature fertilty and Zeus sister but that didn;t stop them from banging each other...

11. Poseidon - god of the sea, and bro of Zeus

12. Dionysus - god of wine, another son of Zeus with ANOTHER chick called Semele, but he was different, cuz he wasn;t a god form birth, but he invented wine, and the gods were so impressed that he was turned into a god
