Minerva for Kids - the Roman goddess


Minerva was Jupiter's daughter for the Romans, the way Athena was Zeus's daughter for the Greeks.

The Romans often thought of Minerva as part of a group of three gods, Jupiter, Juno, and Minerva. They seem to have gotten this idea from the Etruscans. Many Etruscan and Roman temples were dedicated to all three of these gods together.
