 Hestia was horrified by the destruction inflicted on the mortal world by the <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​titanomachy">​Titanomachy</​apdx>​. To aid the mortals cowering in caves she taught them how to build houses and hearths as well as instructing them in the domestic arts. It was Hestia who showed the Greeks how to use fire in their sacrifices to the gods. In doing this she earned their love and ensured widespread worship. She is called the keeper of the hearths and every sacrificial flame is sacred to her. Alongside <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​demeter">​Demeter</​apdx>,​ who introduced farming, the two goddesses rebuilt the mortal world. Hestia was horrified by the destruction inflicted on the mortal world by the <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​titanomachy">​Titanomachy</​apdx>​.

-When Hestia returned to Olympus both Apollo and <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​poseidon">​Poseidon</​apdx>​ pursued her hand in marriage.

When her suitors went to Zeus with their objections, he ruled that Hestia and all women were free to choose their own husbands. To reinforce her power, Zeus made his sister the keeper of the Olympic court and responsible for its upkeep and those who serve at it. In this role she has earned the respect of the rest of the Olympians by remaining outside of their squabbling.+When Hestia returned to Olympus both Apollo and <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​poseidon">​Poseidon</​apdx>​ pursued her hand in marriage.
