Hekate was originally a Titan who ruled heaven, earth and the sea. Her geographic origins appear to be Thrace (present day Greece and Bulgaria). She may have evolved from the Neolithic Mother goddess, when the social structure was matri-lineal. When patriarchy brought in the Olympian Gods ruled by Zeus, many of Hekate’s attributes were absorbed by Olympian Goddesses such as Demeter, Persephone and Artemis. Hekate was relegated to Queen of the Underworld and Guardian of the Souls. This role also degenerated, until she became a shadowy, haunting figure of sorcery and witchcraft said to wander with the souls of the dead, her approach announced by the howling of dogs.
