Greek mythology is a body of myths and legends that were prevalent in ancient Greece. It involves stories about the gods and goddesses who lived on Mount Olympus, as well as various heroes and monsters. The myths were passed down orally from generation to generation before being recorded in written form.

The Greek gods and goddesses were believed to have human-like personalities and characteristics, but with supernatural powers. Zeus was the king of the gods and was associated with the sky and thunder. His wife Hera was the goddess of marriage and childbirth. Poseidon was the god of the sea, and Hades was the god of the underworld.

Greek mythology also features various heroes such as Heracles (also known as Hercules), who was famous for his strength and bravery, and Theseus, who is known for slaying the Minotaur. Other notable figures in Greek mythology include the muses, the Fates, and the Titans.

Greek mythology has had a significant impact on Western culture, particularly in literature, art, and popular culture. Many modern-day words and phrases have their roots in Greek mythology, and countless movies, books, and TV shows continue to be influenced by these ancient tales.
