Motivated to take arms for different reasons, these sovereign women approach each situation with otherworldly powers yet relatable personalities…  And we noticed that some of these War Maidens reminded us of other powerful women in myth! So just for fun, we’ve matched a few of the War Maidens to comparable Greek Goddesses.

 

First up is…

 

Nike

Known as the Winged Goddess of Victory and the Goddess of Strength, Speed, and Victory. Nike would fly around battlefields rewarding victors with glory and fame.  But which of the War Maidens does she most closely resemble?

Athena

Known as the Goddess of Wisdom and the Spear Shaker. Athena was very skilled in the art of war and was arguably Zeus’s favorite child.

The War Maiden she reminds us of the most is… LUDMILA!

 

Harmonia

Known as the Greek Goddess of Peace, Harmony, and Concord. She was given a cursed necklace, referred to as the necklace of Harmonia, on her wedding day as a “gift”.
