Apollo was born in the Greek island of Delos along with his older twin sister Artemis. Apollo was the son of ZEUS and the Titaness Leto. Apollo was born with the same Roman names as his Greek name unlike many other gods.
Apollo's sister, Artemis, was the goddess of the hunt, the moon, and chastity. She also became associated with childbirth and nature. When she was only a few days old, she helped her mother Leto give birth to her younger brother Apollo. Her symbols is the moon, bow and arrow, and hunting dogs.
Apollo's father, Zeus, was the first of the gods and a very imposing figure. Zeus is a sky god who controls lightning and thunder. Zeus is the king of Mount Olympus. Apollo's mother, Leto, was the goddess of motherhood.
Apollo had a beardless, athletic, and youthful appearance. He was the god of many things. He was the god of music, poetry, art, oracles, archery, plague, medicine, sun, light, and knowledge.
Apollo had a job of pulling the sun across the sky in his 4-horse chariot every day. He was famous for being an oracular god and people would come from all over the world to learn from Apollo what their future held.
Greek Mythology states that Apollo had been mocking the God of Love, Eros (also known as Cupid). Because of this Eros fired two arrows: a gold arrow that struck Apollo and made him fall in love with Daphne and a lead arrow that made Daphne hate Apollo.
