Poseidon ( - N/A )  Category ( Mythological_Figures ) [suggest a correction]
 

Mythology has always carried with it a bit of intrigue and mystery. Poseidon, one of the Greek gods has been one of the Greek gods that has always been at the center of Greek Mythology.

In Greek Mythology, there was only one Greek god or goddess that was more important among those considered to be civic gods. Athena was first and Poseidon was second.

Poseidon was considered the god of the sea. He was often seen riding a chariot that could be driven on the sea as easily as anywhere else. He was also the god of horses and because of the reign over the sea and horses, sailors used to sacrifice a horse before sailing the open waters. They would hold the horse down under water until the animal drowned and then they could go on their voyages confident that Poseidon would allow calm waters.

Poseidon was also considered the "Earth Shaker" so he was considered by most to be the god of earthquakes too. It was believed that he could inflict mental problems on mortals and that he could bring on types of fits or epilepsy.

In Greek Mythology, Poseidon was the brother of Zeus and Hades. His wife was Amphitrite and he had many children. He also had affairs. There are, of course, various myths surrounding the affairs that he had as well.

It is believed that Athena and Poseidon fought over control of Athens. In the end, Athena won out. However, at some point, it was believed that Athena and Poseidon decided to join together and strengthen their powers. This made for a better arrangement than to continue as enemies fighting for control over Athens.
