About This Quiz

When people think about the different pantheons, the Greeks are the ones most people turn to first. But the Romans adopted the Greek gods and gave them different names (a lot of which were named after the planets in our solar system). They also embraced similar stories and went from there. For example, the king of the Greek gods, Zeus, became Jupiter, and his queen, Hera, became Juno. But as we said, there are differences between the two groups, like Mars, the god of war, not being as violent as his Greek counterpart, Ares. But that's as far as we'll go with the comparisons, because we're here to focus on the Romans. Wich Ancient Roman god are you, really?

Would you be the king, Jupiter, or would you be someone wiser, like Minerva? Would you be the tempestuous god of the sea, Neptune, or would you be someone more loving, like Venus? Or are you more like some other god or goddess entirely, based on your unique qualities? 

If you answer our questions, we'll be able to match you to one of the deities of this great pantheon. So let's get started and find out whether you're meant to be the goddess of the hunt or the father of the king.
