In Greece Zeus is the King of Gods, the ruler of Mount Olympus, and the god of sky and thunder. His symbols are the thunderbolt, eagle, bull, and oak. Zeus married his elder sister Hera.
Zeus is the greek god of the other gods, and lightning. He is also God of the sky. Sky and thunder.
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..

he defeated the titans and had amazing powers beacause his parents were titans and he was born an immortal god. He just was born that way the way you were just born a human (or whatever u r)
Zeus was called the gods' father because he killed his own fatherCronus, thus saving his siblings and the Titans.
Sort of, it was more like he was the head of a really dysfunctional family. The other gods would listen to him most of the time, but all of the Greek gods tend to work against one-another (some more than others).
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.

\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 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.
He is the supreme God, the God of all Gods in Greek Mythology. He is also the rain God and the sky God. He controls the weather in the skies and sends down the thunderbolts during storms. In Roman Myth, his name isn't Zeus but Jupiter, as a few of the Roman Gods' names were given to the planets.
Zeus was the god of the sky and thunder, he was also King of the Gods and ruler of Mount Olympus.
Zeus/Jupiter was born the youngest son of Cronos/Saturn/Father Time sort of. All his older brothers and sisters had been eaten by Cronos because he was afraid of a prophecy coming true about his children killing him. So Cronos was faked out when Zeus was born, and swallowed a rock instead. Zeus g…rew up and freed Cronos' imprisoned brothers, the Cyclops and some other giant monsters. They gave him the power of thunder & lightning, and fought for him in the war against Cronos and the Titans, a race of ultragiant supergods. (To give you a sense of scale, Atlas was a Titan, and Zeus forced him to hold up the world forever.) Zeus won and freed all his siblings, (the epic ones that the rest of the planets are named after), married one of them (you'll see that a lot), and crowned himself ultragod. He then went on to turn into random animals, have sex with almost everything female in the universe, and physically overpower anyone that crossed him. He was Hercules' father and the Earth and the Sky are his grandparents. Athena busted out from his skull when he had a headache. (MORE)

Posiden is the god of all things water and horses Zeus was the god of the sky
Zeus was the most powerful god because he defeated his father, the Titan Kronos. He helped his siblings(Hera, Poseidon, Hades, Demeter, and Hestia) out of Kronos' stomach, then became the King of the Gods.
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.
it was said that he did but with all the polution and smog it supposedly disapeared
Zeus's god and goddess brothers and sisters were: Hestia (the goddess of the hearth and hospitality), Demeter ( the goddess of agriculture), Hera (the goddess of family and married women), Poseidon (the god of the sea) and Hades (the god of the underworld).
Zeus was the king of Olympians so he had to be proud and he must have thought too highly of himself.
Zeus is the chief god in Greek mythology. He is the god of thunder. The "big three" are Poseidon, Hades, and Zeus. Zeus is the chief god so he is also the most powerful god in Greek mythology.
No that is they name of a greek god in mythology..] The name of the true God is Jehovah.... Says that in the bible book of Psalms 83:18
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.
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.)
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
Zeus is the final boss in God of War II and a boss in God of War III but the final one, but I haven't played III recently so I don't know who the final boss in GoW III is.
In all of this mythologies, Zeus got to be god of the heavens because he and Poseidon decide that Zeus got the sky and Poseidon got the sea hades, then, he was tricked by Zeus into getting the underworld and thus, Zeus got control.
I remember reading somewhere that if anything was to happen to Zeus, Apollo would take over. That is all I know.
Zeus and the God Yahweh are from separate culture and do not intermingle with one another. So no, Zeus did not create God Yahweh, nor did God Yahweh create Zeus. They are a separate entity from different cultures. Answer Zeus and God (Yahweh) belong to two very different religious systems. Alth…ough we can not positively prove or disprove the existence of either god, it is almost univerally accepted that belief in one precludes belief in the other. That view precludes thinking of one creating the other. The one thing that Zeus and God (Yahweh) may have in common is that Zeus is a storm god, while some scholars think that Yahweh was once worshipped as a storm god. (MORE)
no. the greek god Zeus was believed by the acient Greeks, god s believed by christians,etc.
Yes; Zeus (known as Jupiter to the Romans) was the king of the Olympian gods in Greek mythology.
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)
Yes he was the god of the gods because he was the one who weakened Knossos and he was Knossos's first son
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.
'Zeus' was the Greek God of the sky, weather, law, order and fate and he was supposed to be king of all Gods. He features in many Greek myths. He was married to Hera, who is also his sister. She is supreme Goddess aswell as Goddess of marrige and childbirth.
