Gods and goddness
¿Why did the Gods and Goddesses exist?
In Ancient Greek, the population had a series of beliefs that helped them understand themselves and the world around them. Ancient Greek religion was based on the belief that there were twelve gods and goddesses that ruled the universe from Mount Olympus, in Greece.
What are the Gods and Goddesses ?
They were  a race of deities, primarily consisting of a third and fourth generation of immortal beings, worshipped as the principal gods of the Greek. They called the Olympians because of their residency atop Mount Olympus.
How did they born?
According to Greek mythology and the ancient Greek religion, the Titans were the pre-Olympian gods, but the twelve Olympians gained their supremacy on Earth after Zeus, along with his brothers Poseidon and Hades, and their children will achieve victory in the war against the Titans. This war called “Titanomachy" and it lasted 10 years.

And so the prophecy of Uranus against Cronus was fulfilled, in which he told that one of his sons would overthrow him.

The name Zeus means "bright" or "sky."His weapon of choice was the thunderbolt, made for him by the Cyclops.
About Poseidon
Poseidon is best known as the Greek sea god, but he was also the god of horses and of earthquakes. His home was Aegean Sea, his temper controlled the seas, so sailors prayed to him before voyages to ensure safe passage. His symbols include the horse, bull, dolphin, and trident.
Though humanoid, he fathered both the winged horse Pegasus (by Medusa, no less) and the Cyclops Polyphemus, who is blinded by Odysseus.
About Ares
Ares is the God of war, violence, bloodshed and manly virtues.
He was the first son of Zeus and Hera. He was a cruel god so was disliked by the other Gods except Aphrodite. The union of Ares and Aphrodite created the Gods: Eros (known as Cupid), Anteros, Phobos, Deimos, and Harmonia. Sacred symbols of him included the dog and the vulture. Ares used to carry a bloody spear.
