Greek Mythology is the religion of Greece consisting of tales of their great gods and goddesses, most of which share human qualities and human form. The gods are not allowed to interact with mortals, and they live on Mount Olympus. The Gods overthrew their father, Cronus, who was a titan, and imprisoned the rest of the titans in Tartarus. There were then thirteen official gods, meaning that they play an important role in many tales or folklores stories in Greek culture and Religion. These gods are:
