BOREAS

A picture showing the legend of BOREAS taken from our Greek mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Greek Gods, Greek Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

God of the North Wind.

One of the fours sons of EOS and ASTRAEUS, he's a bluff hearty God who's always willing to blow favor to his fans. Not in the least chilly. Apart from temperature-wise, of course.

Married to OREITHYIA, his daughter is CHIONE, the Goddess of Snow, and his sons are the BOREADS. See also the AURAI.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Boreas graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Boreas movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Boreas statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Boreas. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
