Hades

The god of the underworld

All About Hades

Hades, son of Cronus and Rhea and brother of Zeus, Poseidon, Demeter, Hera, and Hestia rules the underworld with Persephone, whom he abducted from the over world. He rules with his trusty guard dog, Cerberus and his judges of the dead- Minos, Aeacus, and Rhadamanthus. Hades is depicted as riding a black chariot with four black horses and carries a two-pronged harpoon or a scepter and a key.

The Many Faces of Hades

Although Hades is the god of death, he is not evil, like many people suggest. He may be stern and pitiless, but he is the god of riches because all of the precious metals were stored beneath the earth.
