The ancient Etruscan Gods and Goddess contain a wealth of stories and legends, wrapped in Myths which typically provide a story with a morale code designed to influence the reader into behaviour as fitting Etruscan culture of the era.
In this article, we look at Menrva and the myths and legends surrounding Menrva, Menrva relationship to and with other Etruscan Gods and Goddess and key events and stories which relate to ancient astrology and the changing seasons.
Equivalent of the Roman goddess Minerva, and Greek goddess Athena, there are only slight differences between Menrva and Minerva, the main one being that she appears to have an association with lightning. But as some later Roman coins show Minerva with lightning bolts, and that all three are associated with war; I personally think they are all identical.
