To Start Off With:
You wouldn't believe the number of people who don't know who the Olympians are. XD

There are typically 12 Olympian Gods, although there are technically 13.

All of these listed gods are siblings. Offspring of the mighty Titans Cronos/Kronos and Rhea.

They are the first generation. The second generation of Olympians are all offspring of Zeus, a few by Hera.
