In Greek mythology, Gorge was described as the daughter of Oeneus, king of Calydon, and Althaea. Gorge was married to Andraemon, by whom she became the mother of Thoas.

                                             According to one version, Gorge was described as the mother of  Tydeus by her father Oeneus, because "Zeus willed it that Oeneus should fall in love with his own daughter." Later, Oeneus handed Calydon over to his son-in-law Andraemon, the husband of Gorge. Andraemon and Gorge were buried in one tomb which was shown in the city of Amphissa.

In Greek mythology, Gorge was described as one of the Danaides. She married and murdered Hippothous, son of Aegyptus.
