About This Quiz

Females in classical civilization weren't always treated fairly, but Greek goddesses were a notable exception. The goddesses were praised and worshipped just as much as their male counterparts.

For example, consider the female influence on Zeus, who is widely considered the most powerful God in Greek mythology. He was married to Hera, but he's known just as much for his philandering ways. Zeus' fling with Leto, the Greek goddess of birth and motherhood, resulted in the twins Apollo and Artemis, two of the most important Greek gods in history. Another of his affairs resulted in the birth of Helen of Troy, who would famously grow up to become "the face that launched a thousand ships," initiating the Trojan War. 

Of course, goddesses did much more than have affairs and children. They held powerful influence over important areas like family, war, the harvest, wisdom, justice, the moon and much more. If you've ever read or heard about them and wondered which of the goddesses had the most influence on your personality, you've found the perfect quiz. Just divulge your answers to the questions below and we will connect your spirit to a powerful female deity who was worshipped widely a few thousand years ago.
