Hades, God of the Underworld, ruled over Elysium, The Asphodel Meadows, Tartarus, & The Fields of Morning, the places souls were sent when they passed onto The Realm of the Dead. No one would be able to escape Hades’ judgment, with Sisyphus, Ixion, Ocnus, Tantalus & The Danaides undergoing some of his most renowned punishments.

To enter the Underworld, however, souls would first have to pay Charon’s Obol, with those who did not have a coin placed under their tongue when buried, left to wander the shores of the River Styx for 100 years before they were allowed to cross. From Orpheus and Persephone to the Three Judges and Cerberus, this is the story of Hades and the Underworld.
