Zeus was king of the gods and goddesses in Greek mythology. Zeus, the youngest son of Cronus and Rhea (Cronus and Rhea were both 'Titans', the beings before the gods), he was the supreme ruler of Mount Olympus and of the Pantheon of gods who resided there. Being the supreme ruler he upheld law, ju…stice and morals, and this made him the spiritual leader of both gods and men. Zeus was a celestial god, and originally worshiped as a weather god by the Greek tribes. These people came southward from the Balkans circa 2100 BCE. He has always been associated as being a weather god, as his main attribute is the thunderbolt, he controlled thunder, lightning and rain. If you want millions of descriptions and stories about him just type in the question on 'google'. Zeus is the son of Cronos and Rhea. He occurs in all strata of Greek mythology, beginning as a vegetation spirit annually slain and resurrected, and ending up as king and father of all the Olympian gods. See the Oxford Classical Dictionary for some of the the details of his career. ( Full Answer )
First he made people out of gold but they were too proud and wouldn't worship the gods so he killed them all and covered their remains in layers of rock. Then he made the silver people but they were so beautiful they just sat around thinking beautiful thoughts. If they ever saw their reflections the…y rarely moved again. He didn't need to kill these people as they died from neglecting themselves. He covered them in more rock and made the people of bronze. These were an aggressive race and once they discovered weapons and war they were never happier. Zeus didn't need to destroy these either, they did it for him. Then Zeus saw he had no materials left with which to make people that were worthy of a god so he called the titan Prometheus to come and make people out of the base materials of clay and lesser metals. After the war of the gods, the titans were bound to do the gods bidding so Prometheus had no choice so he went down to earth and began to shape people. Before the war Prometheus was a master craftsman and it showed in his work. He used clay to mould the delicate bodies and grass to cover their cold heads. Then he brought his creations to life. They looked up at him with their naive little faces and he felt a sudden tenderness. When they asked him what, when, how, where? he taught them the sciences. And when they blinked their little eyes at him and asked why? he taught them the arts- music, poetry, painting and architecture. Then when they shivered their little bodies he climbed to the top of Olympus and stole the fire of the gods from the sun god's chariot and brought it down to them. When Zeus looked down to earth he was furious to see these creations playing with his fire and he punished Prometheus by chaining him to a mountain to have his liver ripped out by hawks and then grow back again every day, until he was later freed by Herakles. To punish mankind Zeus created the first woman, Pandora and gave her a box. But that is another story. ( Full Answer )
the king of Sparta and brother of agamemnon is menelaus. the hsband of Helen is Paris
Hera claimed to be the wife of Zeus in Greek mythology. Hera alsobore four children with Zeus: Ares, Hebe, Hephaestus and Ilithyia.
It was how the Ancient Greeks explained the world around them. Much like the Egyptian mythology. It is about all the gods and goddesses and what they were the 'rulers' of.
Zues had many 'wives', and even more consorts. However, his wife is most commonly Hera, who bore him two sons (Hephestus and Ares) and is often jealous of his affairs with mortals and therefore hates all his children no born by her ( such as Herakles, but there are many others)
Hercules didn't have a brother or a sister but because he was the son of Zeus, he had many half brothers and sisters including Apollo,Artemis,Athena,Persephone and many more( they were all offsprings of Zeus)
Zeus was the king of all gods in Greek mythology, and therefore he was the keystone of the entire ordeal. He helped father many gods and godesses, and he is the focal point of several legends about the Greeks.
Hera, or Juno in Roman mythology, was the Queen of the Gods (hence, Zues' wife.) Hera was ill-tempered and jealous of Zues' affairs with mortal women and in many myths, she is responsible for the bad treatment or misfortune that is bestowed upon the hero or heroine.
Zeus's wife was the jealous goddess Hera (known as Juno to the Romans). And she had every reason to be jealous, since her philandering husband had been known to mate with unsuspecting mortal woman by transforming into everything from a swan to a shower of gold.
Greek mythology were stories of Ancient Greek gods and goddesses, but there were many stories about the heroes of the gods or goddesses that were half mortals, half immortals, like Hercules, for example. Also, Greek mythology stories explain of how things were made, living things and non-living thin…gs. ( Full Answer )

Greek mythology has been around since Ancient Greece; about 400 B.C. Answer 2: No, no! Much earlier. Homer wrote the Iliad and the Odyssey about 800 BC, and the myths were old then.
Saturn (or Cronos), son of Uranus and Gaia, was the ruler of the titans and father of Zeus, who later rebelled against him and his siblings in the Titanomachy.
Zeus' first wife was Metis, and she gave birth to his daughter Athena. However, Zeus heard a prophecy that any of his children born of Metis would turn against him, so when Metis was pregnant with Athena, Zeus swallowed her, which is why Athena was was born fully formed from his head. Later his wife… was Hera, but he had many, many consorts. ( Full Answer )
Zeus, was the supreme ruler of Mount Olympus and of the gods who resided there. He upheld law, justice and morals, and so he was the spiritual leader of both gods and men. Zeus was originally worshiped as a weather god.
Cronus had been warned that one of his children would depose him.To prevent this from happening Cronus swallowed his newborn children Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades and Poseidon, but his wife Rhea wrapped a stone in swaddling clothes in place of the infant Zeus. Cronus thinking it was the newborn baby… swallowed the stone. Meanwhile Rhea had her baby taken to Crete to be raised by some nymphs. When Zeus had grown into a young man he forced Cronus to vomit the five children he had previously swallowed. Then Zeus led the revolt against his father and the dynasty of the Titans, defeated and then banished them. ( Full Answer )

It was believed that Zeus was The main god in Greek mythology along with Hera, and a few others. He had power of the sky and storm. Some legends say he was the lord of all the gods.
Yes, they threw down the Titans with their other siblings. Persephone, a daughter of Zeus, became the wife of Hades with the blessing of Zeus. Heracles, a son of Zeus, was aided by Hades.
They are both gods and they both have the same parents . However Poseidon is the god of the sea and Zeus is the god of the sky. Zeus's symbol I'd the lightning bolt and Poseidon's symbol is the trident.
Zeus had a lot of affairs with other people but the only one he was married to is Hera.
Yes. Zeus's daugher, Athina grew out of his head and his head had an apple. (The apple was like the stem and Athina was the flower growing out of it).
Zeus has two older brothers; Hades (God of the Underworld) and Poseidon (God of the sea). Zeus is the youngest of six children.
Queen Leda of Sparta, the mother of Helen of Troy, Clynmnestra (Agamemnon's wife), and the Gemini (Castor and Pollux).
After the war with the Titans (the Titanomachy) the three brothers, Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades, divided the realms between themselves by lot. Poseidon got the sea, Hades the underworld, Zeus the sky. It should be noted that the realm of Zeus included the the surface of the Earth. As man dwells on the… surface of the Earth Zeus had a lot to do with them and consequently there are more legends about Zeus than the other two. And as there are sailor on the sea Poseidon has more legends than Hades does. Hades was not a neglected God however, he was given authority everything in the earth including all ores and stone so he had a lot of respect from miners and masons and the like. Now to the really ancient Greeks the sky wasn't all that much of a realm. It was considered to be a dome that held the stars and rain water, not really a super great place to have, so the surface of the earth was thrown in as well to make Zeus's realm more equal to the other two. Now Zeus was able to bully the other Olympians rather easily but with his two brothers he was more conciliatory. Zeus and Poseidon argued over the possession of a certain sea nymph and (with a little intervention from Prometheus) Zeus relented to let Poseidon have her. When Hades kidnapped (and possibly raped) Persephone, all the Olympians asked Zeus to rescue her but Zeus could do no better than to secure a poor compromise. "Unlike every other offspring of an Olympian pairing of deities, Persephone has no stable position at Olympus." ( Full Answer )
Kratos (Strength) in Greek myth was the son of The River Styx, the goddess of hate, and Pallas, a Titan god associated with war. In fact, because Styx and her children (including Kratos) were the first to rush to the aid of Zeus, her name was made a binding oath to the gods. Kratos and his siblin…gs live with Zeus and act as his enforcers, attendant upon his throne. ( Full Answer )

Favorite subject.. Because he was king of all the gods. Infact he was the king of everything.
Zeus, as well as all of the other gods, did not have a last name, according to the Greeks. They only worshiped their gods with one name.
Poseidon as the sea god and Hades as the underworld god.(I think only,But don't get angry!)

Yes, Hera married Zeus, yes they are siblings - both being the children of Kronos and Rhea.
A Greek Myth is, in its most basic element, the Ancient Greek's version of the Catholic Bible, but for their polytheist religion.
Zeus has 17 children. The children of Zeus are Ares, Hermes, Artemis, Athena, Apollo, Hebe, Dionysus, Hephaestus, Heracles, Persephone, Enyo, Aletheia, Perseus, Dike, Aglaea, Helen of Troy, and Ersa.
No. In Greek mythology, Etna was where Zeus trapped Typhon, the god-monster. He didn't do anything to the mountain, and no mention of the "top" coming off is in myth. I would imagine the Greeks assumed that Typhon's raging blew the top off the mountain.
