Helen of Troy, Queen of Sparta by TFfan234
Helen of Troy, Queen of Sparta
Helen of Troy was the daughter of Leda and Zeus. She was a Princess of Sparta and was incredibly beautiful. When she was a child Theseus and his friend Pirithous abducted her as they both decided that they both wanted to marry daughters of Zeus, she was left in the care of Theseus' mother while he and his friend went to the underworld as Pirithous wanted Persphone as his wife, she was rescued as both never returned. Later when she was older she had numerous Suitors from throughout Greece, her step father was afraid to choose one of the suitors should the rest be offended but an oath was agreed that they would not attack eachother and would help the one chosen if he should ask. She became the wife Menelaus and they became rulers of Sparta which they ruled for 10 years, she is most well known for the one to have been the instigater of the trojan war as she ran off with Paris who was one of the Princes of Troy (although considering the greeks were probably just looking for a reason to attack troy due to it's position). The trojan war raged for 10 years before odysseus came up with a plan that allowed the greeks to invade the city and Menelus recovered his wife and Paris was killed.

She was also a great granddaughter of Ares and a decendant to Prometheus.

By Meneleus she had a daughter and 3 sons.
1. Hermione
2. Aethiolas
3. Maraphius
4. Pleisthenes

By Paris
None survived infancy

It is possible Helen was under a love spell and that is why she ran off with Paris, considering the fact that Aphrodite had promised Paris the most beautiful woman in the world if he chose her as the most fairest it is possble, this idea was used in an episode in the cartoon series Mythic Warriors and she was shown to be under a spell, also a possible reason why none of her children with Paris survived infancy

On the left is Helen when she was ruling Sparta with the light blue eyes that almost all children of Zeus have (my idea) on the right is Helen in troy and I have her eyes darker indicating her under the love spell.

There are several movies that feature her.

Wives of Zeus by TFfan234
Wives of Zeus
According to Greek Myth Zeus was married 4 times, 1st to Metis, 2nd to Themis, 3rd to Eurynome and finally to Hera.

Metis (on the right) was an Oceanid and a Titan and was the Titan Goddess of Good Council and Wisdom. She was his first wife and the mother of his favorite child Athena. Gaia told of a Prophecy in which their son (she was pregnant with Athena when the prophecy was told) would over throw Zeus so he tricked her into changing into a fly and he swallowed her like his father did to his siblings, she remained inside Zeus for many years until after Athena was full grown and she caused a headache which caused Zeus to get another God to take a axe to his head (since he was immortal he would be alright) and allowed Athena to emerge, she may have also emerged and went off somewhere. It's possible the Prophecy was told by Gaea as she was upset with Zeus for imprisoning several of her children and upset with her for some reason and want to keep them appart and she may have did something to Zeus to cause him to react the same way as his father. She was the daughter of Oceanus and Tethys.

Themis was the Titan Goddess of natural order, divine law and tradition as well as the oracles of the earth. She was the daughter of Ouranus and Gaia, and was formally a wife (his second) of Zeus before they seperated. She counciled Zeus on matters and was by him the mother of the 3 youngest Horai (the Seasons): Eunomia, Dike, and Eirene. As well as Praxidike, The 3 Themeides Nymphs and possibly the 3 Litae (goddess of Prayers who followed Ate as she wondered the earth). They would later divorce for some uknown reason.

Eurynome was an Oceanid Nymph and a Titan Goddess of water-meadows and pasturelands and was the daughter of Oceanus and Tethys and sister to Metis. She became Zeus 3rd wife and by him was mother of the 4 elder charities, Aglaia, Pasithea, Euphrosyne and Thalia. She and Zeus later divorced for unknown reasons.

Hera was the Goddess of Marriage and was 4th and final wife of Zeus as well as his older sister. She was tricked by Zeus into laying with him and he married her and she also became the Queen of the Gods. She was known for being vindictive and jealous, especially on Zeus' lovers even before she was his wife like trying to prevent Leto from giving birth, so she was in love with and jealous of his lovers. She is also known for having tossed her deformed son Hephaestus off of Olympus. She had several children by him. Although interesting to note is that it is unknown if Zeus and Metis actually divorced unlike with his 2nd and 3rd wife so she may not actually be married to Zeus and is the other woman.

Ioke, Goddess of Battle-Tumult and Rout by TFfan234
Ioke, Goddess of Battle-Tumult and Rout
Ioke was the Greek Goddess of Onslaught, Battle-tumult and Rout. Her parents are not stated but was possibly a daughter of Eris but considering she resided over an aspect of war she may have actually been a daughter of Ares and Aphrodite.
