Myth

Love with Zeus

Zeus, the king of Olympus, fell in love with Semele, a daughter of Harmonia. He came down to earth and she became pregnant with his child. When the child was born he was named Dionysus and he was born a mortal. After Dionysus grew up he invented wine and Zeus granted him with immortality. Dionysus then gave his mother, Semele, immortality so she could live forever in Olympus with him. Henceforth she was worshipped as Thyone
