ZEUS was the King of the Olympian Gods; the god of the sky, weather, law and order, destiny and fate, and kingship. He is usually depicted as a strong and handsome manly figure who is equipped with a lightning bolt, or a scepter. His companion animals were an eagle and bull, and Zeus is known for being extremely promiscuous.
Zeus originally was supposed to be killed by his father Kronos, but thanks to the help of Gaia - he was raised and would grow to overthrow his own father. Zeus became the King of the Olympian gods and is featured in many pieces of ancient Greek art work. Zeus had well over 20 children some of whom were: Apollo, Athena, Aphrodite, Dionysus, Helen of Troy, Ares, Herakles and Persephone.
Zeus was the most powerful of all Olympians as he was the son of a Titan. He was known to be strong and he had quite a temper. The myths show us that Zeus would generally help gods and humans who needed help, but if he felt someone was unworthy he would unleash his wrath - usually in the form of lightning bolts. This powerful god of the sky is one of the most well known figures in all of mythology.
