Zeus Zeus is a Greek God, the most powerful one. Zeus' Roman name is Jupiter. Zeus did many things in his lifetimeâ¦â¦â¦â¦ which is forever, because he's immortal. He saved all his siblings, overthrew his father, won the Titanomachy, had over 240 kids and over 155 girlfriends, a…nd chopped his father into pieces with his father's own scythe. Zeus was honored for many things and also known for many things. Zeus was the son to Coronus and Rhea. Coronus was son to Gaea and Uranus. Coronus had overthrown his father, just as Zeus had done to him. Gaea, Coronus' mother, helped Coronus overthrow his father, and Rhea, Zeus' mother, helped him overthrow his father. When Coronus took over the throne, he went to the oracle and heard a prophecy that one of his kids would overthrow him. From then on, every time Rhea gave birth to a child, he would swallow them whole. Then, when Zeus was born, the youngest baby, she hid him in a cave and he was raised by nymphs. Rhea tricked Coronus by wrapping up a rock in a baby blanket and Coronus swallowed the rock instead. Then, when Zeus grew into a man, he gave his father a concoction of wine mixed with mustard. This drink made Coronus throw up his children. Out of his mouth came Hades, Hera, Hestia, Poseidon, and Demeter. This started the Titanomachy war. It was a war between the Olympians and the Titans. Coronus lead the Titans and Zeus led the Olympians. Everyone was able to choose sides. All Titians joined the Titan army, except for one, Prometheus. He hadn't sided with the rest of his family during the Titanomachy, which pays off later. After 10 years of battle, Zeus had lead his team to victory and Zeus had taken over the throne. One thing Zeus was known for was his crucial punishments. Everyone he'd fought against in the war, he threw them in the deepest depths of Tarturus, including his father, by chopping him up with his own scythe. But because Titan Prometheus had not sided with his aunts, uncles, and brother Atlas, Zeus spared him. Zeus then assigned Prometheus the task of forming man from water and earth, which Prometheus did, but in the process, became fonder of men than Zeus had anticipated. Zeus didn't share Prometheus' feelings and wanted to prevent men from having power, especially over fire. Prometheus cared more for man than for the wrath of the increasingly powerful and autocratic king of the gods, so he stole fire from Zeus' lightning, concealed it in a hollow stalk of fennel, and brought it to man. Prometheus also stole skills from Hephaestus and Athena to give to man, such as wisdom and tools. Zeus became furious and gave Prometheus a treacherous punishment. He placed Prometheus on a mountainside and tied him there. Then, each day, and eagle would come and eat his immortal liver which would grow back each night. Then after Prometheus was freed by Hercules, Zeus let him go about and gave him another chance, only to be tricked by him again. Prometheus benefited mankind when Zeus and he were developing the ceremonial forms for animal sacrifice. The astute Prometheus devised a sure-fire way to help man. He divided the slaughtered animal parts into two packets. In one was the ox-meat and innards wrapped up in the stomach lining. In the other packet were the ox-bones wrapped up in its own rich fat. One would go to the gods and the other to the humans making the sacrifice. Prometheus presented Zeus with a choice between the two, and Zeus took the deceptively richer appearing: the fat-encased, but inedible bones. With this, Zeus once again had been tricked, but then again, he couldn't get mad because he was the one who chose it. This is assumed to be the reason why bones and scraps of dinner servings are offered unto gods, and people eat the meat and fat of the animal. Zeus had many kids and girlfriends. All gods are able to morph their form and turn into mortals, and mate with them. Then if they have kids, their kids are half god and half mortal. They would call these kids demigods. Zeus also married his sister, the goddess of marriage, Hera. Every time Zeus would get a new girlfriend, Hera, out of jealousy, would find a way to get even. She would poison them, light their house on fire, or even kill them. When Hera would get revenge she showed people not to mess with her "hubby", the hard way. Many of the gods and goddesses were Zeus' kids. Ares, the god of war, was the child of Zeus and Hera. Apollo and Artemis were the twins of Zeus and a mortal named Leto. Most people think that Athena was born through normal birth like the other gods and goddesses, but actually, that's not what happened. One day, Zeus had an excruciating headache. Nobody knew why. Then after a few months, out of Zeus' head popped Athena, the goddess of wisdom. She was a fully grown woman and was dressed in full armor. The only other goddess that wasn't born through normal birth was Aphrodite, the goddess of love. She came out of the ocean in a pearl, also fully grown. Hephaestus was also the son to Zeus and Hera By, Andrew Handal ( Full Answer )
She, with her brother Apollo, and father Zeus, are of the twelve Olympians, it is imagined that when something is happening upon the world, they watch and listen and decide what will happen; granted that they must have some interest in the events.
its because god is in the sky so other gods and goddesses want to go there too im not sure this is a right answer . its my opinion . post other opinions here now.
You have to get Hercules to help you, and he won't until after Zeus has the five sacred items. Go with Hercules to see Poseidon and Hades, and then come back so he can smash open the lock on the gate. On the trail, use the drachma from the Temple of Hades to buy a windbag from Aeolus.
You must be a blood of a god to enter the gates. If you are mortal, then you must pray to them, worship them. That is what mortals did when they were on earth so they could be sent up to mount Olympus know to most people as Heaven. Just as the Underworld is Hell.
You have to talk to Hades and Poseidon after you get Hercules on your side. Then, after you get the two weapons (The Trident and the Helm of Darkness) He'll break the lock. Then you use the Drachma to buy a Wind Bag from Aeolus and fly up. If you miss, he'll give you a free refill.
You can only get through the gate with the help of Hercules. You have to collect the five sacred items, and Zeus will steal them. Then you go with Hercules to see Poseidon and Hades, and then you can open the gate.
It is in Greece, home of the 12 Olympians (God and Godesses) 2,9191 meters tall.

No, they are not As real as any other god. Of course they don't! They are just a myth. Though some peoplestill believe in them, they're NOT real. That's exactly like saying that Jesus wasn't real, thatGod/Allah/Buddha isn't real, that the God and the Goddess don'texist. By saying that the Olymp…ians do not exist, you arecritcising a belief that, in fact, used to be a major religion. I for one, believe that the Olympians exist. They may be part of amythology, but that doesn't make them fictional creatures. Watchwhat you say... They are mythological gods. They don't exist. People build houseson Mt. Olympus and live there and climb it. Are there any gods? No!Also Greek Mythology says Olympus reaches the heavens, it isn'teven as tall as Mt. Everest! ( Full Answer )

It constantly travels, so it could be anywhere. It was in North America a few years ago, but that could have quickly changed.
A: He flies in a magic chariot B: He turns into his real godly form and lets the wind gods carry him C: Walks
You must first buy the wind bag, after getting the coin. You may get free wind refills. You have to jump from rock to rock, and then light the statues up all the way. And then Zeus will appear. If you don't know how to unlock the gate, you must get Hercules' help. He will break the lock. He will be… frozen to stone but just walk on. ( Full Answer )
After you get the 5 sacred items (the flower, the ring, the pearl, the scale and the whisker) and return them to the Tree of Immortality, you find that Zeus is only using you to gain power. Go to Herc's Hero Hut and now Hercules will agree to help you. You will need the Touchscreen Mirror from the …test by Aphrodite, on the beach in Poseidon's realm. Travel to Hades and get his skull crown, then to Poseidon and get his trident. Now you can return to the gate of Olympus, where Hercules will smash the padlock open. *You will also need the one drachma from cleaning graffiti at the Temple of Hades. ( Full Answer )

In Greek mythology, Mount Olympus was formed and inhabited by theGreek gods. Since this mountain is over 1,000 years old, we canestimate that it was discovered in the B.C. time era.
Jupiter and Mount Olympus are two separate entities. Whereas Jupiter was the ROMAN god of the sky, Mount Olympus was the home of the GREEK gods. Therefore, the Romans did NOT believe that Jupiter lived on Mount Olympus. However, the Roman god Jupiter is essentially the Roman version of the Greek god… Zeus, who DID live on Mount Olympus.

They are not related to each other. That's just the name of thecamera brand. It is just a catchy brand name.
It's often equated with the mountain of that name in Greece- however, in some cases Olympus seems to refer to something other than a mere mountain.
Olympus was the residence of the divine family, the twelve most important ruling gods and goddesses of ancient Greece, who therefore were called the Olympians. There they all lived together in an enormous palace, high above the clouds. Olympus is generally identified with Mount Olympus in Thessaly, …which is the highest mountain in Greece, but very often it is identified also as some mysterious region far above the earth. It is written that Zeus talks to the gods from "the topmost peak of many-ridged Olympus," and only a little later he says that if he willed he could hang the earth and sea from a pinnacle of Olympus, clearly not a mountain. In either case, Olympus is not the equivalent of heaven. According to the writer Homer, Poseidon says that he rules the sea, Hades the dead, Zeus the heavens, but Olympus is common to all three. The entrance to Olympus was a great gate of clouds, kept by the Seasons. Within were the gods' dwellings where they lived and slept and held court. In its great halls they feasted on ambrosia and nectar and were entertained by Apollo's lyre, the Graces and the Muses. Nectar was a sweet drink made from fermented honey, and ambrosia was said to be an uncooked mixture of honey, water, fruit, olive oil, cheese and barley, disgusting as that sounds... Others claim that a specie of speckled mushrooms were the true food of the Olympians, created whenever Zeus' thunderbolts struck the earth, and that this was what kept them immortal. The Olympians were fond of the smell of roast beef and mutton, but didn't like the taste, so mortals would sacrifice sheep and cattle to them, but afterwards would eat the meat themselves. The deities who did not live on Olympus, such as the gods of the Underworld, the earth or the sea, would arrive when summoned by Zeus. The builders of the palace at Olympus were the Cyclopes, gigantic one-eyed Titans who were freed by Zeus from Tartarus and in thanks gave him his famous thunderbolts. Hephaestus, the talented god of the smiths and the forge created all the furnishings and artwork on Olympus, even making some of the chairs and tables able to move themselves in and out of the celestial hall. The private quarters of King Zeus and his wife Hera were located at the southern end of Olympus and overlooked the famous Greek cities of Athens, Thebes, Sparta, Corinth, Argos and Mycanae. At the northern end of the palace, facing the wild hills of Macedonia, were found the kitchen, banquet hall, armory, workshops and the servants' quarters. In between was a square court, open to the sky, with private rooms on either side belonging to the other five Olympian gods and five Olympian goddesses. Past the kitchen and servants' quarters were situated cottages for lesser gods, as well as the stables, chariot sheds, dog kennels and the Olympians' private zoo, where the deities kept their sacred animals. Zeus held court at Olympus seated on an enormous throne of polished black Egyptian marble, adorned with gold. Each of the seven steps leading up to it were enameled with one of the colors of the rainbow. A bright blue covering above symbolized that the whole sky belonged to Zeus alone. A ruby-eyed golden eagle perched on the right arm of his throne and a purple ram's fleece covered the cold seat. Zeus used this fleece for magical rainmaking in times of drought. Queen Hera's throne was made of ivory, with three crystal steps leading up to it. Willow leaves and golden cuckoos decorated the back, and a full moon hung above it. Hera's seat cushion was a white cow skin, which she used to make rain when Zeus was too busy or couldn't be bothered to end droughts. Zeus and Hera's thrones faced down the Council Hall towards the door leading into the open courtyard. Along the sides of the hall stood ten other thrones, five on each side, each one belonging to the other ten main Olympians. Homer says that no wind ever shakes the untroubled peace of Olympus; no rain ever falls there or snow; but the cloudless firmament stretches around it on all sides and the white glory of sunshine is diffused upon its walls. More Terrific Information from THOMAS BULLFINCH'S The Age of Fable The abode of the gods was on the summit of Mount Olympus, in Thessaly. A gate of clouds, kept by the goddesses named the Seasons, opened to permit the passage of the Celestials to earth, and to receive them on their return. The gods had their separate dwellings; but all, when summoned, repaired to the palace of Jupiter, as did also those deities whose usual abode was the earth, the waters, or the under-world. It was also in the great hall of the palace of the Olympian king that the gods feasted each day on ambrosia and nectar, their food and drink, the latter being handed round by the lovely goddess Hebe. Here they conversed of the affairs of heaven and earth; and as they quaffed their nectar, Apollo, the god of music, delighted them with the tones of his lyre, to which the Muses sang in responsive strains. When the sun was set, the gods retired to sleep in their respective dwellings. The following lines from the "Odyssey" will show how Homer conceived of Olympus: "So saying, Minerva, goddess azure-eyed, Rose to Olympus, the reputed seat Eternal of the gods, which never storms Disturb, rains drench, or snow invades, but calm The expanse and cloudless shines with purest day. There the inhabitants divine rejoice For ever." (Cowper) The robes and other parts of the dress of the goddesses were woven by Minerva (Athena) and the Graces, and everything of a more solid nature was formed of the various metals. Vulcan (Hephaestus) was architect, smith, armourer, chariot builder, and artist of all work in Olympus. He built of brass the houses of the gods; he made for them the golden shoes with which they trod the air or the water, and moved from place to place with the speed of the wind, or even of thought. He also shod with brass the celestial steeds, which whirled the chariots of the gods through the air, or along the surface of the sea. He was able to bestow on his workmanship self-motion, so that the tripods (chairs and tables) could move of themselves in and out of the celestial hall. He even endowed with intelligence the golden handmaidens whom he made to wait on himself. ( Full Answer )
