What Do You Know about Hades?

Maybe, Hades is the name linked to fear and darkness in Greek myths. Although there aren’t many myths including Hades as their hero or villain, his presence is felt in almost every single Greek myth, especially the mention of his house, or realm, the underworld. However, as you have listened to some information about Hades, let me check your understanding of some of the information you have listened to in the audio podcast and maybe, I will venture a little bit more and ask you more questions related to this episode, and some of the earlier Myths and Legends episodes related to this one. Come, let’s check your knowledge and understanding of Myths and Legends – The Olympian Gods – Hades and co.
