In ancient mythology, Pegasus was the immortal winged horse that sprang from the neck of the Gorgon Medusa at the moment of her beheading. Pegasus was tamed by the Greek hero Bellerophon and together the rode into many epic adventures, most notably slaying the fire-breathing monster Chimera. Bellerophon later attempted to fly Pegasus to Mount Olympus, but Zeus, King of the gods, made the horse buck and throw the disgraced hero back to earth. Pegasus flew on to Olympus where Zeus claimed the divine steed as his thunderbolt-bearer.
