Mythology was made to explain the unexplained. Some of the heroes in mythology were Hercules and Odysseus. The people who made mythology were Apollodorus of Athens. according to Greek mythology when a person died they would go to the underworld and be judged by three spirits of kings Rhadamanthus, Minos, and Aeacus to decide if they would go to the fields of punishment if they were a bad person, the fields of asphodel if they were a decent person, Elysium if the were a hero, or if a hero was good enough the would be reborn three times.
