Who Were Athena’s Siblings?

Persephone, the Dioscuri twins, Helen, Dike, Minos, Aphrodite, Artemis, Hercules, the Graces, the Muses, Apollo, Artemis, Daradanus Hephaestus, Hebe, Eileithyia, Ares, and Dionysus were Athena’s siblings. Since she was born from Zeus’s head, Athena is considered Zeus’s only child.

Zeus conceived Athena by swallowing Oceanid, who was pregnant with Athena. She was liberated when Hephaestus used an axe to sever Zeus’ head in two. Athena is the most beloved daughter of Zeus and the goddess of knowledge. She is also revered as a war goddess, but she is more of a strategist than a warrior. She is also revered as the goddess of craftsmanship, agriculture, navigation, weaving, spinning, and embroidery. She was given the name of the city-state of Athens.
