Read the questions below carefully and try to answer as quick as possible..time counts!

  1. The Greek Gods had human weaknesses

    right answer!That's right, way to go! That's what probably made the Greek Gods so loveable!

    Yes
    No

    wrong answer!No, as the name refers, the official domicile of the Olympian Gods was Mount Olympus in Central Greece. However, there were gods who preferred to stay elsewere, such as Poseidon, the god of the Seas, who just loved the depths of the seas

    right answer! Right, the Greek God's home was Mount Olympus and on its summit was the majestic throne of Zeus, the powerful King of the Gods

    wrong answer! No...Zeus may have had lots of children, but in the Pantheon there were gods like Poseidon or Hades who were his brothers.
