Zeus, the ruler of Mount Olympus and king of the gods; god of sky, weather, thunder, lightning, law, order, and fate; had held a banquet in celebration of Peleus and Thetis' marriage, them being the parents of Achilles. Eris, however, was not invited since she would make the party unpleasant for everyone - being the goddess of discord.

Taken from A Pride of Princesses, kwa Shirley Climo.


Once upon a time, so the mythmakers said, there lived a Greek king who had three daughters. The oldest princess was very pretty. The sekunde princess was quite charming. The youngest princess, whose name was Psyche, was so lovely that even the flowers turned their heads to look at her.

Praise for Psyche's beauty spread throughout Greece and soon reached the ears of the gods and goddesses who dwelled high on Mount Olympus.
