Who is the twelfth Olympian: Hestia or Dionysus?

Since you’ve read this far, you’re wondering: Why are they called twelve Olympians when there are more? Well, that’s a difficult question to answer.

In ancient Greece, people agreed that there were twelve Olympian gods. But they didn’t specifically determine which these are. Depending on where you asked in ancient Greece, people would state that Dionysus was part of the Olympians. In contrast, others would claim that Hestia is.

The reasons for this are plentiful. But you have to keep in mind several things. First of all, what we consider ancient Greece was an extended period, several thousand years, to be precise. A lot of things, especially regarding religion, change over such a long time. And second, not all gods were known to every Greek. There existed regions where people believed in different gods than in others, and their religions just merged over time. Greek mythology is not as homogenous as you might think. So in some regions, Dionysus had the upper hand; in others Hestia.

Difference between Greek and Roman gods

You may or may not know about this, but the Romans borrowed their gods from the Greeks! Yes, you heard right! Mostly, only their names changed. But sometimes, the Romans even added some stories to the Greek repertoire. But since a lot of people either know the Greek or the Roman name of these gods, we’ve decided to make things easier for you. That’s why we mention the Roman name of your result as well! But don’t get confused; most of our planets share the same name because they were named after the Roman gods.
