Perseus found Mycenae
Perseus was so thirsty and he saw water from mushroom so he drank that water. Then he was so happy because the water was so delicious and he named that place that he drank water, Mycenae. Then he became the first king of Mycenae.
Actually, He is not a god but we think he is our hero and guardian of our city.
Each city of the Mycenaean period was independent under its own king. Our government was represented by a central royal authority extending from a palace center, unlike more democratic governments which would emerge later in Greek culture.
