In Greek mythology, Zeus is the king of all gods, and he is the strongest. He is the god of the sky and thunder. His name is cognate with the first element of his Roman equivalent Jupiter.
Zeus was married to Hera but she did not like him so much because he had many affairs with other women such as Leto and Semele who gave birth to Apollo and Dionysus respectively. However, he loved her very much despite her jealous nature toward others.
The god also has many grandchildren from his many sons with mortal women. These grandchildren are known as demi-gods. Some of them included Perseus, Hercules, Achilles, Theseus, Jason, Perseus, and several others.
Zeus was born on Mount Olympus and was raised by his grandmother Gaia. As an adult, Zeus became ruler of the gods after defeating his father Cronus in a great war.
Zeus defeated the Titans in a great war and became the ruler of Mount Olympus. He also defeated Typhon who tried to overthrow him but was defeated by Zeus’s brother Apollo when he struck him with lightning bolts thrown from Zeus’s chariot drawn by winged horses.
He is known for his jealousy and vengefulness, and he often punishes people who anger him by sending them into exile or making them insane.
Zeus’ main weapon is his thunderbolt (a lightning bolt), which he uses against all those who offend him. He also has a great deal of control over weather conditions, including storms and thunderstorms.
