About This Quiz

Want to do well on this quiz? There's a good chance that there's a Greek god or goddess who can help with that if you know who to look to.

There were 12 primary gods, known as the Twelve Olympians, who met on Mount Olympus. They loved and hated one another as well as the mortals, appearing to them as lustful lovers or as nightmares, or not at all until death. They fell in love, in hate, and into many vengeful states, but Zeus and these gods weren't the only ones with a hand in the fate of mortals, or a good story to tell. 

Before the Olympians, and before the gods as we often think of them to be, there was a state of pre-existence, before mortals and before our world. In this primordial state came the first gods, who ruled over the Earth, the underworld, the darkness, and the other basic parts of life around us.

See how much you know about not only the primary gods and their contemporaries, but also how well you know the gods who came before them.
