Roman mythology is a large collection of stories, started in Ancient Rome, about the beginning of the world, and the lives and adventures of lots of gods, goddesses, heroes, and heroines.

The myths of the Ancient Romans are often called "Greco-Roman" because they were very similar to the Greek mythology of the Ancient Greeks!

Gods and goddesses

The gods and goddesses in these stories have lots of magic powers. They can make themselves invisible to humans and move to any place in a very short amount of time. The gods and goddesses also never get sick and can only be hurt by very unusual causes. This is called being immortal. Immortal means the God or Goddess can never die.
