ZEUS






Zeus -- the king of all Greek gods -- was the sky god who controlled the weather. Zeus carried a lightning bolt, which he used as a weapon. He was the architect of the Trojan War, and is known for affairs with multiple women, including Europa.

Zeus overthrew his father, Cronos, and drew lots with his brothers, Poseidon and Hades, to become the ruler of all the gods. He was lord of the sky and rain. His weapons were lightning bolts, winds, and storms. He had many wives and children. Sometimes, Zeus surprised women by turning into things like animals. Zeus also punished those who displeased him, lied, or broke oaths.

Zeus swallowed one of his wives named Metis because she was going to have a child, and the child would soon conquer him. Later Athena was born out of Zeus’s head in full armor. Once, he tricked a woman by turning into a shower of gold. She soon became pregnant, and had a child a few months later. Another way he tricked a woman was by killing her husband and making himself look like him.
