Here's a list of information about the Olympians: Zeus: King. God of the sky. Fairly useless except for creating lots of half-gods and annoying his wife. Symbol and weapon is the lightning bolt. Hera: Zeus's wife--queen. Goddess of marriage, and therefore very testy because her husband is the …womanizer to beat all womanizers. Poseidon: Sea god. Also creates earthquakes. The creation of horses is attributed to him because the whitecaps on waves look similar to horses' manes. Hades: God of death; rules over the underworld where Greeks supposedly went when they died. Not technically an Olympian, because he has no throne on Mount Olympus, but still really important. Owns the helmet of darkness that can make him invisible, also master of cerberus the three headed dog. Demeter: Earth goddess. Created the seasons because her daughter, Persephone, was stolen away by the god Hades. Persephone spends half the year in the underworld, and therefore Demeter spends half the year despairing. Athena: Goddess of wisdom, strategic warfare and crafts. The owl is her bird and she's the patron goddess of Athens. Interesting fact: She was born by bursting, fully grown, and in full battle armor out of Zeus's head. Aphrodite: Goddess of love and beauty. Ironically, she did not marry for love. Her son is Eros--better known as Cupid. Hephaestus: Smith god. Aphrodite's husband. Lame due to an unfortunate childhood argument with his parents which resulted in his being thrown from Mount Olympus. Ares: God of war. Real angry guy and Aphrodite's illicit lover. Has a bunch of attendant small-time goddesses like Eris (discord.) Artemis: Goddess of the moon, the hunt, and for some reason, baby animals. One of Zeus's illegitimate children, born with a twin. Elected to live untethered by men--real symbol of girl power. Possesses silver arrows. Leads an immortal band of girls called the hunters of Artemis. Apollo: Artemis's twin. God of the sun, prophecy, music--a well-rounded sort of guy. He's the patron of the Oracle at Delphi, which was made in the area where he killed the dragon-like monster called Python. Possesses golden arrows. Because of a failed love affair with a nymph who turned herself into a laurel tree to escape him, the laurel wreath is his sign--and a sign of greatness. Hermes: God of travelers, thieves, etc.--a trickster. Messenger god. Illegitimate son of Zeus. As a baby he stole Apollo's herd of sheep, and then placated him by creating the lute and giving it to him. Owns a pair of winged sandals. Dionysus: God of wine and revelry. Yet another illegitimate son of Zeus. Was hidden away from the other gods for a while because...well, you know they say "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned," and Hera'd been scorned near-constantly. He got a throne on Olympus because the other gods liked him so much that one of them gave up her throne for him. Hestia: Hearth goddess. Not active at all in mythology. The most significant thing about her that I've heard is that she gave her throne to Dionysus, to make 6 gods and 6 goddesses on Olympus. (MORE)
Hi! I just read the Iliad by Homer, the Greek gods are real funny and cool in that book, you should read it! Well, Zeus is the god of thunder, hurricane's, tornado's and stuff like that, but he is also the head god, the top dog, the king of the gods.
Zeus was the greek god of the sky, lightning, thunder and just about anything to do with the sky. He was also the head of the greek gods and goddesses

\nHe was the leader of the greek gods. The first three olympians, Zeus, Poseidon and Hades drew strings to find what they were the god of. Zeus "won" and got the sky, Poseidon got the sea and land, and hades got the underworld. Zeus also gave birth to most of the other gods, which means he does his …children... alot (MORE)
Zeus, Hades, and Posiedon got gifts from the Cyclopes. Zues got thunderbolts, Hades got a magic helmet that turned him invisible, and Posiedon got his trident. Hades used his helmet to steal weapons from the titans to distribute them among the other gods. they fought them and then they won.
Zeus caused bad to the people when he was in charge, making them do things for him they shouldn't have done. For more info visit the Related Link.
The titans fought Zeus on the mistic place of tartataurus.Then they were imprisoned in Hades Gate which can only be opened by a mortals hand.
Zeus was the god of the sky and thunder, he was also King of the Gods and ruler of Mount Olympus.
Nothing I don't think, Zeus was the king of all gods, If Ares was compared to Zeus he would be a puny little thimble.
He was the son of a titan, Cronus. His mother was a Titaness called Rhea.
No, The Titans were the first children of Gaea but the gods were their children. Titanic was the name of a ship, so named for its massive size (Titanic, root word titan ).
THey belong to an earlier generation, and are not called gods. Some of them are parents of gods.
no Zeus was not the oldest of the gods. In fact Chaos was the oldest god and the creator Gaia (Earth) Tartarus(the abyss) Eros(Desire) Nyx(night) and Erebus(darkness.)
Zeus was never the leader of the titans. He was lord of the gods because the three brothers drew straws, and Zeus got the biggest one, making him the king of the GODS!
no. the greek god Zeus was believed by the acient Greeks, god s believed by christians,etc.
Zues is god " the " god of all gods because he stopped his father from killing his brothers and sisters
Who was given leadership over the titans for the war with Zeus and his siblings And what was his punishment after being defeated by Zeus and the other gods?
That would be Kronos or Cronos ( same thing), his punishment was being cut up by the same scythe he used to kill Uranus by Zeus, then he was sent to Tartarus.
Zeus is not the god of gods. He was born of Cronus and Rhea and like all gods, he can be killed. He can be injured and weakened. He does sleep and he does walk Midgard (earth) from time to time. However the All Father, Odin, is the god of all gods. He is the Omega. Though he can also die, gods do… die, but they come back to life as well. They can do that, their gods! (MORE)
Zeus and God the christian/Jewish/Islamic God are very different, being from very different religions from different time periods that served different purposes. God is the creator and ruler of all things, while Zeus/Jupiter is the head of a Poly-theist religion who was just the god of the sky
Yes he was the god of the gods because he was the one who weakened Knossos and he was Knossos's first son
Zues overthrew and Condemned the titan Cronus (as well as the other titans, except for Atlas) into Tartarus.
It depends on if you believe in Greek gods or the Christian god. If you are Christian, the Christian god is the god of everything and everyone. If you believe in the mythical Greek Gods, then Zeus is the god of all gods and goddess's so it really depends.
Some stories say that all of the Titans were bound in Tartarus. Others say that all except Cronus were bound. Cronus was given fermented honey (otherwise known as mead) and once passed out from drink, taken to the cave of Nyx (personification of night) and left to dream for all eternity. The latter… represents that Cronus (personification of Life) could not be held within the confines of the Underworld (because doing so would end all life). (MORE)
Zeus, King of Heaven/Olympians, son of Cronus and Rhea. In Greek myth, there is only one Zeus.
No he is not, there we're two titans beholding great power,there was Choas, and Menoetius. They were titans of rash action and beheld great power, Zeus actually had to kill these men seperately, if he was to take them both head on, it would had been the end of him. Goes the same for Posedion,just be…cause he's God of the sea does'nt mean he was the strongest in the sea. The titan Eurybia was very mastery of the vast oceans, he could kill Posedion if he wants, he is still alive in Greek Mythology Actually. -My Source : Roman&Greek Mythology Book [By The Way You Should Check Out Roman Mythology Its Also Interesting] (MORE)

Because the Titans hated the gods, and the gods hated the Titans, so the gods wanted rid of the titans. They used Kronos' scythe to cut him to bits and sent him to Tartarus.
