Family tree of the Greek gods
Jump to navigation Jump to search
The following is a family tree of gods, goddesses and many other divine and semi-divine figures from Ancient Greek mythology and Ancient Greek religion. (The tree does not include creatures; for these, see List of Greek mythological creatures.)
- There are conflicting stories regarding the origins of Eros. Eros is usually mentioned as the son of Aphrodite and Ares, but Hesiod's Theogony places him as one of the primordial beings, born from the Void (Chaos).
- There are two major conflicting stories for Aphrodite's origins: Hesiod, in his Theogony, claims that she was "born" from the foam of the sea after Cronus castrated Uranus, thus making her Uranus' daughter; Homer, however, in his Iliad, has Aphrodite as daughter of Zeus and Dione. According to Plato, however, the two were entirely separate entities: Aphrodite Ourania and Aphrodite Pandemos.
- Either Hestia or Dionysus is considered the 12th Olympian, depending on the source.
