His father was Cronos, who swallowed Zeus's older brothers and sisters.His mother, Rhea, gave Cronos a stone wrapped in baby clothes, instead. She gave baby Zeus to some nymphs to care for.Later Zeus killed Cronos and became Supreme Lord of The Skies.
The Greek Gods were immortal, and were never depicted as in danger of "dying" - altho Cronus tried to kill the Olympians at birth by swallowing them -which didn't work, and they could be injured like Ares was during the Trojan War. If anything caused them to "die" it was the birth, spread, and eve…ntual domination of the religion of Christianity. Point of clarification: most pantheons were immortal, but the exception to that rule were the Norse Gods, who could die from injury or old age - only by eating Idun's apples did they stay young, and they had to partake at least once a day for the magic apples to work..

Rhea is the mother of Zeus & Kronos,Zeus's hater, is his father who tried to eat him!
Well if you want to know who Zeus is then he's the Greek god if the sky, ruler of all gods, and he's known for his "wandering eye".
Zeus had 4 symbols:. One of them was the eagle. The eagle represented Zeus's power and leadership. Also, it was a sacred bird to the Greeks.. The other was the lightning bolt. This was simply because Zeus was not only king of the Greek gods and godesses, but also the god of the sky, and he used th…e his "Master Bolt", a lighting bolt that he used to strike the Earth.. another was a bull and an oak tree.

Zeus was the god of the sky..... and the king of all gods and godesses. Oddly, he had hundreds of children..... and married his own sister Hera. Zeus (also known by his Roman name Jupiter) was the sixth child born of Rhea andKronos and is the youngest of his siblings:Poseidon, Hades, Hera, Demeter a…nd Hestia. He is the God of the Olympians, his position is to keep harmony between all of the Gods and dispelling any feuds, he also controls the weather. His symbols are the thunderbolt and the aegis. He has many children, due to the fact that he is rather promiscuous, but his favorite is his daughter Athena whom he solely gave birth to from his forehead.

zues is the son of cronus who is the son of uranus. Everytime cronus had a child he would eat them to keep them from defeating him and taking over the throne. Cronus ate all of zues's brothers and sisters as infants but Zues's mom did not like him doing this and so after Zues was born his mother gav…e Cronus a rock wrapped in a blanket that looked like an infant. Cronus downs the rock and thinks he ate baby zues. Zues's mom then takes zues and give him to the nymphs Ida and Adestia. He is wet-nursed by a goat and grows to manhood. Zues then gets kings minos's daughter to make a draught that will make cronus puke. Zues gives the drink to cronus and Cronus spits up all Zues's brothers and sisters who are fully grown. Cronus is thrown in a hole where he cant get out. Zues takes power and rules mt. olympus (MORE)
Zeus was the leader of all ancient Greek gods in Olympus. However, even before his time and before Olympus, there were two deities considered in Greek and Roman mythology to be Mother and Father of all existence, and to be supreme above all: -Gaia (Mother Earth) -Uranus (Father Sky)
Zeus is the primary god and is one of the Olympians on Mount Olympus. The twelve main gods live here. They are Zeus' sons, daughters, and other relatives. His most treasured child is Athena.
Rhea, titan of flow. She hid baby Zeus from his father Cronos after he swallowed the rest of his older siblings. Rhea gave him to a foster-mother which happened to be a goat named Almathea until he grew strong enough to over throw Cronos. Later, he ends up sacrifices Almathea. (Some Thank you...)
At the time of the flood. the super race was removed. Noah's family reinstated the human race.. New Answer. In mythology, he is a God. Gods cannot die. What is the person above talking about? I am sorry. He would not die from a flood.
Zeus is the greek god of the heavens and air, and the king of gods. But NOT the god of winds who is Aeolus.
\nZeus is the God of Thunder,\nhe's also the head God, I guess you could say\naccording to Greek mythology.
He can get ANYONE to listen to him and when he gets mad he can throw lightning bolts or thunder bolts!!! :)
Zeus is a immortal Greek god, that meaning ageless. there is evidence of his worship from over seven thousand years ago.
Lightning It is spelt Zeus and he was the God of the sky. Improved answer, Zeus (Roman name Jupiter) was the 'King' of the gods, ruler of Olympus, and the Olympian gods. Zeus was considered the god of the sky, air, weather and was also known as Lord of the Sky, Cloud - gatherer, Rain god and Thu…nderer and so his weapon is the thunderbolt and lightning hurled at anyone who displeased him. His bird is the eagle and tree an oak. (MORE)
first of all he is fake and secondly he was the leader if you realy want to know
Zeus was the strongest of Greek gods. He had many lovers. Hecheated on his wifw/sister Hera.
He was the son of Cronus and Rhea, the brother of Hestia, Hera, Demeter, Poseidon and Hades. Also the husband of his sister Hera and the lover of innumerable mortal women.
Most Greek gods were worshiped in temples, so that is what I would guess! I hope that answers your question! ;)
he had the power of lightning and the sky he was lord of all the other gods there leader!
The Greek god Zeus' weapon is called the master bolt. It hurtles bolts of electricity out of it at his enemies. By Ewan Behro
Perhaps reflecting the failings of human rulers (or monarchs in general), Greek mythology often depicts Zeus as untrustworthy, capricious, lecherous, and arbitrary.
Zeus is the King of gods and rules the sky. He is also the owner of the master bolt. He is married to Hera and has many children like Athena and Aphrodite. He is also the brother of Poseidon and Hades.
it was said that he did but with all the polution and smog it supposedly disapeared
Yes, he was the chief Olympian god (god of the heavens) in Greekmythology. He was the son of Cronus (Kronos) a Titan who was amongthe earlier Greek deities. The later Roman counterpart of Zeus wasJupiter.
Zeus' parents were the sibling Titans Kronos and Rhea. Kronos (like his father Uranus before him) had heard a prophecy that one of his sons would dethrone him. He wasn't about to let this happen, so whenever Rhea gave birth, he took the child and swallowed it whole. So it was that their children Her…a, Poseidon, Hades, Hestia, and Demeter spent their first years in his belly. Rhea wasn't too happy about this situation, as you might suppose. So when their sixth child, Zeus, was born, she smuggled him to Crete and gave Kronos a stone wrapped in a blanket. Thinking it was the new child, Kronos gulped the boulder whole and went about his merry way. Zeus was then raised by Nymphs on the island of Crete. After growing up, Zeus schemed with his mother Rhea to get his siblings back. He forced Kronos to vomit up those siblings he had swallowed, along with the stone that Kronos thought was the baby Zeus. Zeus then led his siblings in revolt and overthrew his father and the Titans, banishing them to Tartarus, which, according to Homer's Iliad, "is as far beneath Hades as Heaven is high above the Earth." The conquering brothers Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon decided to divide the world among themselves. They drew lots to see who would control what. Hades got the underworld and all the dead folk, Poseidon got the seas and oceans, and Zeus got the skies. Because Zeus was god of the skies, high above any other gods, he also became king of the gods. (MORE)
he is a Greek god because he sliced up his father Cronus and put him in tartarus a huge hole in the ground in the under world. So Zeus became the ruler of Olympus and was also in one of the big three. The big three were Zeus, Poseidon and Hades.
Some of the Greek god Zeus\' actions include punishing those who lied or broke an oath.
Here's one fact: He's real. Here is how I know that: One night i was sitting in my brother's room and my parents were eating dinner. Outside there was a horrible storm. It was pouring rain, there was thunder, lighting even! I hated it. So, i told my brother to pray to Zeus to make it stop. We pray…ed and prayed and prayed. Two minutes later, I swear upon the river styx that it stopped. I told everyone about this amazing incident. They were in awe. Also, I have had an encounter with either him or poseidon. I was asleep, and i had a strange dream. I had to rescue some important artifacts from some thieves. I ran and ran and hid them in the safest places I could. Finally, I heard a voice calling that was saying thank you. When I woke up, I swear, there was a tall muscular man standing in front of me, with a long golden-red beard. I stared and asked, 'Who are you?' and he answered, 'Oh I am sure you know...'. He said it with a smile and twinkling eyes. I stared at him and he turned into mist and disappeared! I got up and ran to my mom. I promise... all of this is true. I have had some other encounters too. I believe the Gods have been watching over me for a long time. All of this took place here in New Delhi, India. I'm 11 years old and I am excited! :) Some other facts about Zeus: 1. He is married to Hera 2. He has many kids 3. He is the god of the skies 4. He is the king of the greek gods Hope this helps!! (MORE)
he shoots lightning from da sky! he can control anything in the sky like storms and lightning. he can basically do anything else except the things other gods can do ex. poseidon with water. Zeus cant do anything with it
He resides on Olympos, a state of existence that is reserved for Greek Gods/Goddesses and Heroes/Heroines. Olympos is a state or plane of Divine substance and the similarity to Mt Olympos is in name only. But his (Zeus' or Dias') domain/control lies beyond Olympos. It is said that the original twelv…e Greek Gods/Goddesses - six of each, are reflected in the human psyche as mere archetypes, but in reality, they are much more than that. They are the foundation of human spirit and form a major part of the Life of the Universe. Scholars tend to confuse the Greek Gods with unsubstantiated accounts written by scholars, playwrights, philosophers, etc. through the ages. Really, these accounts can only be mere speculation of religious scholars who try to make sense of our spiritual world. Nevertheless, they are hypotheses that deserve respect, just like any Scientific hypothesis. Who knows, maybe one day, they may become Theory or even Law. O, Zeus, let me see that day! (MORE)
A lot of them are but Poseidon, Hades, are his brothers and Hera, Hestia and Demeter are his sisters. Also Aphrodite was born from the blood of Uranus and sea form.
The Zeus and Poseidon had too many children to name. Some of Zeus's kids were gods too, so that doesnt make any thing easier.
Zeus is the leader of all the gods. He rules over the heavens and has a "gift": the powerful lightning bolt weapon that is his to use!

Zeus had the powers of electricity shooting, flying, summoning, and most likely eagle mimicry. Zeus also had a fur cushion on his throne that when he shook it above the earth it created rain.
as they fought the titan the golden race whorship the Zeus then they discovered the had been no titan left
Zeus is the Greek god of the sky. He basically has the abilities to control the sky, more or less his abilities are to create storms and such. But he doesn't control the wind, there are four other gods that were said to control the winds, each of them having their own section north, south, east, and… west. (MORE)
Because the realms were divided by Poseiden, Hades, and Zues and Zues was ruler becuase he was basically the strongest one since he didnt get swallowed by Kronos
He was the one who defeated his father, Cronus, who ate his siblings Poseidon, Hades, Hera, and Demeter. They decided that he should lead Olympus.
Zeus was the greek god of the sky;he was the king of gods. zeus was married to herra the goddes of marige and motherhood;queen of the gods. But in your question you asked if zeus was a greek or spartan god;well sparta is in greece. sparta is one of the most popular cities in greece; along with athen…s and olympia. (MORE)
Zeus if Father of Gods and men because he overthrew his father, Cronus, leader of the titans.
Typically, Zeus was considered the chief of the Greek pantheon. His name even points to this, since it is derived from the same ancient root word as the Latin deus , which means "god" and dies which means "day". The origin root means "to shine brightly". Incidentally, the Roman counterpart, J…upiter also derived from this same source. (MORE)
He wore it to defend his self at all times and to show that he was important in all ways it was also to show that he was powerful and ruled over every thing.
Greek gods, including Zeus, were described as bisexual, but nonwere exclusively gay. Zeus had many female lovers and at least onemale lover, called Ganymede.
