Zeus rounded up his two brothers, hades and Poseidon together they freed their siblings from Cronus and defeated both him and all the other titans. According to this article “he drew lots with his brothers Poseidon and hades to decide how would rule the father's throne” (https://www.greekmythology.com/Olympians/Zeus/zeus.html by Publisher Michael Kara’s :: Authors Michael Kara’s & Charolais Megas). Naturally Zeus won and became the ruler of both gods and mortals, supported in this article “ he looked over other Olympian gods and mortals alike”(https://greekgodsandgoddesses.net/gods/zeus/ ). So the origin of the great Greek god is known and now we can understand why the people praised Zeus but the other questions still need answering.Zeus may be the king of the Olympian gods but what powers and abilities did he have and what were to happen if you were to upset him? In an article, it states “the Greek god of the sky and was the first god also being the ruler of all Olympian gods.
Finally when Zeus was born she tricked Cronus into thinking it was his own son, when handed to him, and he eat him like all the others. But after doing so, Rhea told Cronus that she had given him a stone wrapped up in a blanket. Zeus later overthrew his father and released all of his other kin. After overthrowing Cronus, Zeus took over the ruler of the kingdom. With him taking the thrown on Mt.
Rhea ordered nymphs to watch over her son Zeus until he became a man. Before Olympus was ruled by Zeus and his siblings; Zeus would first have to overthrow his father. Zeus then poisoned his father and had to face the consequences of Gaia. Gaia unleashed the Titans upon the world and with the help of his brother Hades and other siblings, fought as much as they could. The Olympian gods were unable to defeat them alone so Zeus called upon the cyclops offspring to aid him in war.
He named them stretchers because they had stretched their power and had overthrown his rule. Twelve of the thirteen Titans either controlled the major functions of the universe or had children that did. Cronus was one of Gaea’s children, a Titan. He killed his father for condemning his children. Before Uranus died he prophesied that “ You murder me know, and steal my throne-but one of your own sons will dethrone you, for crime begets crime.” Cronus was very careful from then on.
Zeus eventually killed his father. After he killed Cronos, he restored life to his brothers and sisters. He then drew lots with his brothers Poseidon and Hades to see who would become ruler of the various parts of the universe. Zeus won the draw and became the supreme ruler of the gods. He is lord of the sky, the rain god.
But their mothers Hera and Rhea hid them and gave Cronus and Saturn a rock in baby clothing. When Zeus and Jupiter had reached maturity they returned and defeated their fathers releasing their siblings. That is really where the similarities end though. Zeus was a total pervert. He was the illegitimate father of many children but not only with other goddesses but with mortals.
These godly figures consist of similar characteristics and similar powers and the amount of those powers. As stated in an article, “Scholars have recognized many similarities between Marduk and Zeus. Like Zeus, Marduk is a sky god, and is of a younger generation of gods. They both battle to create order, and both overthrow their parents to triumph.” With that being stated, it helps demonstrate that these similarities are noticeable and logical. It is important to acknowledge these gods in a similar way because Marduk deserves just as much fame as Zeus because of both of their accomplishments, as well as
To gain the control of Olympus, Zeus had to overthrow his father Kronos. Kronos was afraid of his children overcoming him because it was foretold a son of his is to overcome him; so he ate all of his children except for Zeus. Reha, Zeus’s mother, hid Zeus away and fed Kronos a rock to eat instead of Zeus. When Zeus was strong enough, she released him and he fed Kronos a herb to make him disgorge his children and he and his siblings gathered to overtake their father(Carroll). Zeus then took over Olympus and became king of gods.
As Zeus grew older and learned of what happened he found a potion to make his father regurgitate the other children. Once this happened they all teamed up and killed their father. Zeus then became the ruler of Mount Olympus, and head of the new line of Gods. Jupiter was the predominant power holder of Roman Gods. He was ruler of the sky, the daylight, all the weather, and even the thunder and lightening.
After Zeus was grown he went back to Cronus with the help of Gaia and Metis, who made an elixir to cause Cronus to vomit his brothers and sisters. Zeus then led the fights against the Titan dynasty. Afterwards they banished the Titans to Tartarus, the lowest place on earth, even lower than the underworld. Zeus and his brothers then drew straws to find who would rule where. Zeus gained rule of the sky, Poseidon ruled the seas, and Hades ruled the underworld (pantheon/odin).
