(Titan) MNEMOSYNE

Attributes : --
Festival Days : --
When in Rome : Moneta

Goddess of memory. Mnemosyne is the Titan daughter of Uranus and Gaia, and mother of the younger-Muses by Zeus.

Zeus had a terrible memory, he was always forgetting he was married to Hera. Fortunately Mnemosyne had enough memory for both of them, but Zeus just doesn't know what 'no' means.

Taking the form of a shepherd he cavorted with Mnemosyne in the hills of Eleuther and she found herself pregnant everytime they had a bit of hanky panky. After a week and two days Mnemosyne had given birth to Calliope, Clio, Melpomene, Erato, Euterpe, Terpsichore, Urania, Thalia and Polymnia — the Muses.

There are few tales involving Mnemosyne, which is a bit strange bearing in mind she invented language and words, but she is responsible for ALL stories. Without memory no one would be able remember them, and how embaressing would that be?
