The father of the Greek god Zeus is Kronos (also spelled Chronos and Cronus), the king Titan and the lord of time.
Zeus, god of the sky, didn't actually kill his father because his father (Cronus) was immortal, like Zeus. Instead, Zeus used his fathers own weapon to slice Cronus into a thousand pieces. Zeus then tossed all the pieces into Tartarus, the deepest crater in the underworld, and Cronus never escaped.… Cronus was still alive because he was immortal, but he was harmless since his body was scattered in Tartarus. Zeus was then chosen to be king of the gods. Him and his brothers, Poseidon and Hades, chose the domains they would rule over. Zeus picked the sky, Poseidon picked the sea and Hades picked the underworld. Zeus did not kill Cronus, he and his allies fought a war and Cronus and the other Titans were driven into Tartarus.

Zeus (aka Jupiter or Jove in Roman mythology) was the king of the gods and the father of Hercules.
Until he decides to help you, Hercules is in the same location for the entire game : selling autographs in Herc's Hero Hut (which has no function in the game whatsoever).

They cannot possibly be, since they are from two different religions. Zeus is from Greek mythology and Jesus is from Christianity. Answer: The only Greek god that may be similar to Jesus and thus form part of the Jesus story is Dionysus. The similarities were: . God (Zeus) was his father, hi…s mother was a mortal . He is associated with a spring religious rite (like Jesus and Easter) . Both were associated with wine . Dionysus flesh was eaten by the Titans . There are frequent drawings of Dionysus on a donkey with branch waving crowds . After death he goes to Mount Olympus to be with the other gods ( Full Answer )
Hell no, Zeus may not exist like "the heavenly father" but Zeus had powers and was the ruler of gods, goddesses and humans. No way would Zeus ever be related to whatever the heavenly father is.
No. He is not my heaventy father. However, he was regarded as a heavenly father of Mount Olympus, in Greek mythology. He was one of the triumvirate, the other two being Poseidon, god of the sea, and Hades, god of the underworld.
Yes, Hercules was a son of Zeus. For the record his mom's name was Alcleme.
Yes, Zeus had a son named Perseus, Poseidon did not. In the fictional series 'Percy Jackson and the Olympians', the antagonist is a boy named Percy who is the son of Zeus. However, in recorded mythology, Perseus was the son of Zeus.
No; Hercules is half-brother and a decedent of Perseus. Perseus and Andromeda had a son Electyron who with Anexo had Alcmene, the mother of Hercules with Zeus. Zeus is also the father of Perseus.
You don't. Once Zeus takes the 5 sacred objects, Hercules will helpyou reach the throne rooms of Hades and Poseidon, and will smashopen the gate to Olympus. But after that you are on your own. (Youneed the one drachma you can earn by removing graffiti from theTemple of Hades.)
No, Yahweh is the Hebrew/Jewish word for "Lord." The God of the Hebrews. Zeus was the father of Hercules.

Perseus from the Myths, not the books, is Zeus' son. Percy Jackson is Poseidon's Son.
Zeus is the father of Perseus; his mother being DanaÃ«, now the son of Perseus and Andromedea was Electryon who with his wife Anaxo had Alcmene - mother of Hercules, wife of Amphitryon. Perseus is thus both brother of Hercules by being the son of Zeus, and great-grandfather .

Hercules is no help until Zeus steals all five of your items, you must collect the sacred items, go to Athena and then he will come and take them, right away go the Hercules and he will help.

Both of the gods give you magic utencils you use to defeat the thrifty Zeus. ( Full Answer )

The relationship between Zeus and Hercules wasnt the best. Zeus didn't barely see him at all because he was trying to keep all the Gods and Godesses in line.

Zeus is the most p…owerful god out of all gods because he had teh lightning bolt. The lightning bolt was made by the titans and then was given to zeus. ( Full Answer )

you can only make him think your ready once you get something from HADES the god of the underworld and take hes crown and then take POSEIDON'S weapon the god of sea then take the mirror and click the lightning sign.
Probably, because he is know in many cartoons and movies for his courage and strength, while Zeus is not as common to our culture.
Hercules cannot defeat Zeus, however strong he may be as Zeus is a god and the king of all the gods.
This looks like a homework question about a particular story, in which case you should determine the answer by reading the story. If you're just curious, and this isn't for a homework assignment, then in general no, Hercules did not ever become King of the gods. "Why not" is probably explained by t…he fact that the "King of the gods" usually got the title by patricide, either actual or symbolic (Zeus, for example, imprisoned his father Cronus), and Herakles (if we're talking about Zeus, this is the proper spelling; Hercules is paired with Jupiter ) had a generally positive relationship with Zeus (as distinct from Zeus with Cronus: Cronus actually tried to eat Zeus when he was born, because Cronus became King of the Titans by castrating his own father Ouranos, and he didn't want history to repeat itself).
