Achilles, One of the Greatest Greek Gods

Achilles is a Greek god who fought in the Trojan War. He is famously known for his heel, “The Achilles Heel.” This was the one weak spot on his body. His mother dipped him into the River of Styx to make him immortal, and his heel is the only mortal part on his body-which makes this his most vulnerable body part. There was one other way to wound him, by taking away Patroclus, his best friend and second in command. Achilles’ story is called, The Iliad and it shows the rage Achilles goes into after his friend is taken from him. This Greek God is one of my favorites personally, he is quite the leader and is definitely worth finding out more information about.
