Nobody killed Zeus. The information ends and the last pages of all the book say that life will continue and that somebody will probably over throw Zeus and so on. Not very helpful is it? I think it may be one of his sons though.
Zeus is from the Earth also known as Gods he is born in the palace of Cronus and Rhea. During the time of the Golden age before the age of the Gods.

Although Zeus had countless relationships with women, he only had one wife: Hera, the goddess of family and marriage. Hera often got angry at Zeus for having affairs with other women and punished them. I hope I answered your question!

Zeus had many powers. One is that he could manipulate lightning. He was also the ruler of the gods.
Your question isn't clear. Zeus was omnipotent and could do whatever he wanted. There was no clear definition of his will.
When you say "Who was after Zeus", if you ment in the ranking of power.. then it was Zeus, then Poseidon, then Hades. If you ment birth, then it was Hades, Poseidon, then Zeus. Hope i helped. :)
Cronus, was the first God of the Universe and was the only Titan brave and willing enough to follow Gaia(the Earth)'s wishes and kill the evil Uranus (the Sky) who imprisoned the Hecatonchires and the Cyclopes in Tartarus. Cronus married his sister, Rhea and had six children. Because Cronus knew tha…t one of his sons would overthrow him as he overthrew his father, he decided to stop the next generation and eat (swallow) five of his six children (Demeter, Hera, Hades, Hestia, and Poseidon). But Gaia gave Rhea advice on how to keep her sixth son (Zeus). Rhea and gave Cronus a stone (known as the Omphalos Stone) wrapped in swaddling clothes (robes) and tricked him into believing that the stone was his sixth son. Cronus promptly ate the stone. Rhea hid baby Zeus in a cave on Mount Ida, Crete, in secrecy, in fear that Cronus would find out about the trick played on him. [The story on how Zeus thrived is a mystery spread upon different people and stories, see various articles on Zeus and Cronus for details.] As Zeus grew up, he became stronger and gained more friends and allies. When Zeus was fully grown and mighty, Gaia gave him an emetic herb to use on Cronus. Zeus tricked Cronus into thinking that the herb would make him immense and overbearing power, but instead it made Cronus extremely sick. Cronus later threw up the five of his children along with the Omphalos Stone. Zeus had prevailed. Zeus shared land and power among each of his siblings, he made Hades the god of the Underworld, Poseidon the god of the sea, Demeter the god of the harvest, Hestia the goddess of architecture and family, Hera the goddess of marriage and the rights of women. Of course, being Zeus, he kept the best for himself. Zeus chose the right to guard the sky and the heavens, also becoming the second God of the Universe. Zeus also shared power, laws, and rights to those who lived in his land. (MORE)
Zeus was the king of gods in Greek mythology. God of lightning and ruler of the sky
That isn't really a question :), but if you mean how he was born then he was the son of Cronos and Rhea, with his brothers and sisters, Hades, Posiden, Hestia, Demeter, and Hera.
She was a powerful goddess worshipped by many the myth of her birth is that she sprouted shraight out the head of Zeus full grown?
Athena.. She was a sex craved freak just like her dad.. She raped Aphrodites, the godess of sex !
Zeus and Metis were going to have a daughter or son. He found out that if he had a son, his son would overthrow him like Zeus did to Kronos. Zeus tricked Metis into turning in to a fly by saying that she was too powerful to do so. He then ate Metis. Later, he had a pain in his head and told his cupb…earer to take an ax and split Zeus's head. Athena sprang out of him in full battle armor. (MORE)

Zues had many children called demi-gods. Some of his children were Herculeus, Perseus, and other famous names like that. One thing about these heroes were they were never sons of both Zues and another god(goddess). Zues came down from Mount Olympus and had children with mortal women. (Or so it is sa…id). also when zues was the king of all god and goddesses he became interactive with the mortal womens. (MORE)
Hera. HERA WAS ZEUS'S QUEEN and wife but not the only wife. Metis was his other wife but not queen therefore he had Metis and Hera as his wife but Hera as queen. He put Hera as queen most likely because he was suppose to marry her down the line instead of marrying Metis. So he married her two. Take …note that when he married Metis he was young. (MORE)
in Greek, they believe that zues creates a earthquake under sea to make a tidle wave (tsunami). and destroy much land that is valuable to Greeks. That is why they praise him and remember him.
no,he was god of gods EDIT: Being the king of the gods does not stop you from being a jerk. The guy was a serial rapist and brought evil to the world through Pandora's box.
The children of Cronos and Rhea are: (in order) Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades, Poseidon and Zeus.
Zeus was the ancinet Greek god; king of the gods, the god of sky and weather, law, order and fate. Metis a daughter of Oceanus and Thetys was the mother of Athena, she was a Titan goddess of good counsel, advise, planning, cunning, craftiness and wisdom.
Zeus was the king of the ancient Greek gods and Jupiter was the god of all gods in roman relgion.
It is because not everyone was scared of him, and some were thirsty for power.
He had no alternative. I don't think he knew it was her giving him the terrible migraine.
Zeus as we all know is the mythical king of the gods on Mount Olympus. Zeus is often portrayed as being the all powerful god and the youngest of the gods. Zeus is assumed to have hate his predecessor who are known as the Titans especially Cronus king of the titans. He is also paranoid of his brethre…n a who are out to over throw him. Many times he have foiled the plans of the other gods who tried to bind him up to make him a better king. In that latter of events Zeus is then known to hate Anyone who opposes his power and position. (MORE)
Not at all. The mythologies are completely different. If anything, Zeus is Odin. Thor would be akin to Aries or Mars, but not quite either one. Thor is the thundergod of Norse mythology, the god of the storm. From Thor comes Thursday (Thor's Day.). Zeus, meanwhile, is the chief god of Greek mytholog…y, and the root of all Romance words for god (Deus, Dios, Dieu.). Odin, meanwhile, was the chief Norse god, and the origin of Wednesday (Wodin or Odin's Day.). (MORE)
Zues was the son of Gaia god of Earth and Cronos, god of time, he would eat every child that Gaia produced for him because he had a fear that one of his sons would overthrow him. He had this fear for he killed his father with a sickle and as his father died he cursed Cronos that he would suffer the …same fate as he did, and his son would kill him, just like Cronos had killed him. Eventually Gaia hid her pregnancy and gave birth inside of a cave letting nymphs take care of Zues. When Cronos asked Gais for her son she gave him a rock instead which he ate and out came all of his sons and daughters which he had eaten. Ofcourse they were all perfectly alive and well and eventually with the help of Zues defeated ronos in the battle of the gods. (MORE)
Zeus was the god of gods, he reigned over all of Greece. He controlled the sky, thunder and lightning that falls over the land.
His father had heard a prophecy that one of his children would overthrow his rule (he was king of the Titans) so he swallowed all his children when they were born. His wife Rhea got very upset by this and she hid their last child from him and gave him a rock to eat instead. Zeus grew up hiding in a …cave and when he was old enough his mother told him about his brothers and sisters being eaten.Zeus was very angry and wanted revenge so he disguised himself and tricked his father into eating a potion containing mustard that made him throw up. Because his children were immortal gods, they were still growing inside him so when he threw up his children came out fully grown, and joined Zeus in the war that lead to the Titans being overthrown.

Not at all because those days if you wanted to set a goal that people think was imposible they would call you crazy but these days people incourge them.
As far as I know, it was just the usual ancient Greek rituals, involving the slaughter of cattle and possibly sheep. I don't know if there were any specific sacrifices involved.
actually he is not a goddess he is a god and the reason he is a god is because he was brave to kill his own father the kings of the titans and he was also the one who saved all his brothers and sisters and they were so thankful that they let him be the god of all gods and goddess
Beyond the last star. Beyond the last galaxy. Where no mortal can see or be. *Another way to "find" Zeus of course is to read all the old greek myths. For many people they hold incredible meaning even today and the gods are truly multi-dimensional characters. (For the Poptropica character, see …the related question) (MORE)
Kronos and the goddess of the earth fathered Zeus and other children. Kronos ate Zeus and the children, and someone fed Kronos something that made him throw up the kids, who were just fine. Zeus, Hades, and poseidon then overthrew kronos and took over the earth, starting a new age.
Neither of them, as Zeus and Ares are mythological gods, while jesus is very much real.
He was the king of the gods. He had to make sure no overthrows him, the monsters don't eat the humans, the titans don't appear again, he has to make sure the sky doesn't fall down because Atlas was to lazy to hold it up, he also has to keep on making plans on luring his bossy sister/wife away from M…t. Olympus so he could have a big part with the other gods. PS: he also keeps on throwing thunderbolts at people. (MORE)
Zues is the leader of gods. He is the god of gods in greek mythology. He has all of the powers. He is god of lightning,thunder,water, and any other material on earth.
Zeus Zeus was born in 700 BC. He became the Greek God of heaven and earth by picking straws with his siblings. He got the shorter one. When he was born, his father tried to eat him but his mother switched him with a rock and he survived. Zeus was raised by his grandparents and when he was 20 h…e came back to fight his father, Cronus who was a Titan. His weapon became the thunder bolt ,the most powerful weapon in the universe.

Zeus was born from Cronos. He was hidden by Rhea to train him to overthrow his father. FYI: Cronos swallowed all of his babies to ensure they didn't overthrow him
I don't know what you mean by "special" but when Zeus was born, Rhea (his mother) hid him and gave his father a fake baby to eat. Zeus was then raised by another person but returned
They are one and the same. You might as well ask what your relation to yourself is.
Since his father,Cronus,ate all of his children Rhea Zeus's mother fed Cronus a rock,and Rhea hid Zeus away on a island.
He ws left on the Island of Crete to be raised by the Goat. The Nymphs made so much noise that Cronus couldn't hear his cries...
Zeus was born by the Titans Cronus and Rhea. Cronus was notorious for being a very jealous and greedy deity. Out of the fear one of his children could take his throne, Cronus swallowed every child Rhea was giving birth to. However, when Rhea gave birth to her last child, Zeus, she managed to tric…k Cronus with the help of the Titans Uranus and Gaea. She gave her husband a rock in swaddling clothes to swallow, as a substitution to her child, and sent Zeus away to the Greek island of Crete. Special daemons named "Curetes" made noise by hitting their shields, so that Cronus would to not hear the cries of the baby. (MORE)
