Hades was the lord of the underworld. Hades was one of the original six Olympians, but was later excluded from the group of twelve Olympians because he stayed in the underworld for the majority of his time. Hades was ruler of the dead. This was not necessarily looked upon as evil as is often portrayed in modern times. In the Greek belief system, all people good or evil went into the underworld where there were distinct parts to the realm. Hades had complete control of the underworld. Even Zeus would not challenge his power in this realm.One of the most famous stories about Hades was his abduction of Persephone.
