Perhaps: when Zeus was in love with Hera in her maidenhood he changed himself into the cuckoo, and she caught it to be her pet [in order to seduce her]. No myth says she did not want to marry Zeus.
Zeus and Hera had Hephaestus, Ares, and the goddess of childbirth Ilityhia.. They were siblings, their father Cronus, mother Rhea..
Zeus' power was he was the ruler of Mount Olympus and all the land. He had everything he could imagine and more. He didn't need anything else but, he didn't need like a real magical power like for example: (strengths, or transforming, or anything like that)... Zeus was the Ruler of Mount Olympus i…n Greek Mythology. It was believed that if someone, or a civilization did something the Gods disapproved of, the Gods would smite them, bringing destruction and despair to the afflicted. So in a sense there power was to control the very Universe. But it has been painted that Zeus had the control of Lightning bolts. But, the lightning was merely a symbol that represented Mercelous destruction. Zeus was the King of the Gods of ancient Greece, so his power was absolute over everything. He could do anything, make anything happen, grant any prayer, and had mastery over all the world and everything in it. His equivalent in ancient Rome was Jupiter. In Greek mythology, Zeus's first wife was Metis, who was the Goddess of Wisdom. When she was pregnant, Zeus turned her into a fly and swallowed her, so that she would give birth inside him and only he would bring her into the outside world. The child they produced was Athene, Goddess of War, who apparently emerged from Zeus fully grown and in full armor. Poor old Metis reappeared again from her husband's tummy soon afterwards, back in human form and none the worse for wear! He had all power. He had power over water,lightning,thunder, and all other material on, in, and around earth. (MORE)
As the Father of Gods and men, every man, woman and child, both mortal and immortal, could be said to be in his family. However, for a complete list of his actual consorts and children, see Sources and related links , below.
kronos ate all his children except the youngest, zues because another titan gave him a rock instead. zues grew up and fed kronos a mixture to make him throw up the other olympians(who are immortal) and zeus chopped kronos into a thousand peices with his own scythe, so they made zues the king of the …gods (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.

\nHe was descended from the Titans Cronus and Rhea. He had several siblings, and a few offspring (some with humans).\n. \nI am redirecting this question to the Greek mythology section, where more will be known. He is the son of Cronus and Rhea, and brother of Poseidon and Hades. He has many childr…en. (MORE)
Yes. Since Hera is the goddess of marriage (among other things) she remained faithful/married to Zeus . Even though Zeus was constantly bangin other people
Zues did not marry hera. zeus slept with hera therefore heracovered it up by marrying him.
Zeus wanted power so that he could rule all of Mt. Olympus. He told all the mortals down on earth to pray to him, praying to Zeus gave him power. When all the mortals stopped praying to him, all hell broke loose and many lives were lost. .
delphi was the first goddess and that is why the temple of delphi was named to honor her
he had the power of lightning and the sky he was lord of all the other gods there leader!
Zeus was the youngest child of Cronus and Rhea, the king and queenof the titans. His five older siblings were Hestia, Hades, Demeter,and Poseidon.
Cronus was told by his father Uranus and Mother Earth that one of his own sons would someday over throw him. Cronus then swallowed the first five children that his wife, Rhea, bore him: Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades, and Poseidon to stop this from happening. He meant to swallow the next child, Zeus, …but Rhea tricked him and saved the baby. She substituted a stone wrapped in cloth for the baby and gave in to Cronus. Zeus was raised by nymphs and grew to manhood in secrecy of his father. Eventually, he returned home and became cup-bearer for Cronus. After drinking poison mixed into his drink by Zeus, Cronus vomited up his five children and the stone. This is how Poseidon came to the world. After releasing his brothers, Zeus led a war against Cronus and the other Titans. The war went on for ten years when Zeus, Poseidon & Hades released the Cyclopes from captivity. In gratitude, the Cyclopes gave each of the brothers a weapon. Poseidon received a trident, Zeus a thunderbolt, and Hades a helmet of darkness. They used these gifts to finally defeat Cronus and the rest of the titans. Now that the three brothers were the rulers of all existence they decided to draw lots to determine their domains. Poseidon drew water, Zeus drew the sky, and Hades drew the underworld. And that is how "The Big Three" got their powers. (MORE)
Parents: Cronus and Rhea Siblings: Posieden, Hades, Demeter, Hera, Hestia Spouse: Hera Kids: Ares, Athena, Apollo Kids:
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.
Cronus is Zeus's father, while Hera is Cronus's wife which makes her Zeus's mother of course and he has lots of brothers including Hades, so Zeus made Hades the king of the underworld, and Poseidon the god of the sea, those are kinda the most important in his family. You can actually try typing Zeus…'s family members on google so you would know them all. Thank you.. (MORE)
nice try this is probably a test awnser . many things . to number 1 that's is not an answer u @ss hole and well one thing was that he can shape shift
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.
They can get rather annoying to him, but I think he does like them. After all, he did save them from their father Kronos.
Zeus uses his powers when he is in battle or punishing somebody or solving a problem.
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 got his powers from when the Titans got overcome and all there powers got transferred to the gods but some of the powers the gods have they just came up with and got like Dionysus and wine which he invented but things like hearth witch one of the gods have i don't know how she got it
Zeus was king of the gods, so he had the power to make them do his bidding. Also, he was Lord of the Skies, so he was the one who made it storm, flood, ect.
You go to Olympus, the door id open for you. Then you have to fight him with Poseidon's trident and hades crown.
The ancient Greeks did so in hopes of rain for crops, good judgment, and for passing laws.
In Greek mythology There is told to be no more gods with more power of Zeus because of the term "Zeus the God of the Gods" so because of that there is no one in Greek mythology with the power stronger than Zeus But in some ways Poseidon and Zeus in a battle it would be close and if Poseidon Gets Z…eus to the water Poseidon would be the winner because of Poseidon's Strength (MORE)
Your mom! haha! you fell for it! smd bch! i had a 1.4 footer! ha!
Yahweh is one of the English names for the foremost deity of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and other similar groups. Zeus and Ares are gods in Greek mythology. Zeus was their most prominent god, the god of sky and thunder. Because the Greeks were polytheistic (believed in more than one god), they …had other gods as well, including Ares, the god of warfare or bloodthirst. Other major gods of Greek mythology are Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Dionysus, Hephaestus, Artemis, Apollo, Hermes, Hera, Hestia, Hades, and Aphrodite. In short, the deities you mentioned are from two different religions, one of which is dead. (MORE)
well its mostly zeus dad who abused his power because his dad whould eat his children right after zeus's mom gave birth to them so he didnt have brothers and sisters because his dad ate them all because he new that one of his children would over thrown him. but his wife new he was eating the childre…n so she put a brick in a wraped up blanket and gave it to her husband to eat instead of zeus. She put zeus in a blanket and hide the baby up in the mountains and the goat up there would feed him and when ever zeus would cry they would take the swords and bang them together. Until zeus grew up he couldnt leave there. Until after he grew up and over throwned zeus's dad and found out that his dad ate people and other people whould eat humans two so zeus found out and freed his brothers and sisters and put his dad in a bad part of the underworld named tartarus but he eventually excapted.

I think you're getting your religions confused. The "One God" is the religion for Christians/Catholics, but Zeus/Ares were the belief long ago Zeus and Ares are Greek gods, and Greeks do not believe in only one god.
Geae wanted to overthrow Zeus because he threw the former rulers the titans in to the deep dark pit tartarus
He wants to see justice done in the world, people living in piety and according to ethical values. He wants mortals to live as best a life as they are able to.
Good question! Zeus was the Greek god of the sky, thunder, and lightning. He was the son of Cronus and is the chief god in the Olympian Council. He can bring thunderstorms, lightning, and weather. All the Olympian gods are somehow related to Zeus. Zeus is by far the most important Greek god.
technically they all retained power after Zeus defeated them, but were trapped where they couldn't use it
Zeus was Kronos' son and Kronos did not want to be overthrown as king of the gods by Zeus.
