Hestia was the goddess of the hearth, family and domestic life. Her name meant both a house and a hearth, symbolising the home. She was the first born child of Kronos (cronos), and Rhea who was sadly swallowed at birth.She was Zeus' sister, but although initially she was included in the Olympian gods, she was replaced by Dionysus. She took a vow to remain a virgin, refusing to give in to the callings of Poseidon and Apollo.
She had many character traits but here are some of them that stood out to me. She was very family involved and thought every family meal was very important. She was very nice to everyone she met. This might sound really cliche, but she rarely had any hate for anyone. She was very loyal, not only to the Olympian Gods, but also her beliefs.
