Zeus was the child of Cronus and Rhea, and the youngest of his siblings. In most traditions he was married to Hera, although, at the oracle of Dodona, his consort was Dione: according to the Iliad, he is the father of Aphrodite by Dione. He is known for his erotic escapades. These resulted in many godly and heroic offspring, including Athena, Apollo and Artemis, Hermes, Persephone (by Demeter), Dionysus, Perseus, Heracles, Helen, Minos, and the Muses (by Mnemosyne); by Hera, he is usually said to have fathered Ares, Hebe and Hephaestus.
His Roman counterpart was Jupiter and his Etruscan counterpart Tinia. In Hindu mythology his counterpart was Indra with ever common weapon as thunderbolt.

He was attested in Ebla as "Hadda" in c. 2500 BCE.
From the Levant, Hadad was introduced to Mesopotamia by the Amorites
Hadad was equated with the Greek god Zeus; the Roman god Jupiter, as Jupiter Dolichenus; the Indo-European Nasite Hittite storm-god Teshub; the Egyptian god Amun; the Rigvedic god Indra.
His worship became widespread in Mesopotamia after the First Babylonian Dynasty.
He later became known as Baal, as in the demon Baal. Demons, Demonology, Witchcraft, Vampires, Ghosts, and mummy's all came out of the same place, Mesopotamia. They found a later home with the Greeks. You might also know him in Scandinavia as Thor.
Is badass and lightning!
He clearly looks like the one that nobody in that mythology wanted to mess with
I like mythology Again Very cool
You reap what you sow, I guess....
As one of the Big Three, Zeus has the ultimate powers a god can possess, and is rivaled only by his brothers, Poseidon and Hades. He possesses the standard physical, intellectual, and magical superiority inherent in all gods, though to a much greater degree due to his status as one of the oldest Olympians as well as one of the Big Three.
Massive Strength: Zeus has incredible physical prowess, he is mentioned being able to hurl entire mountains at his enemies. Most notably, Zeus was able to crush and imprison Typhon himself by hurling Mount Etna on top of him.
Enhanced Height: Zeus can tremendously increase his height, Zeus grows even taller, until he is half as tall as the Storm Giant Typhon.
Aerokinesis: As the god of the sky, Zeus has absolute control over air.
He has many other powers and skills. :3
so amazing I think I just flew with him
First, the primordial and ancient Gods, the first Greek Gods: Chaos, Ananke, Uranos, Gaia, Pontus, Tartarus, Chronos, Phanes, Aether, Hemera, Erebus, Nyx, Ophion, Morai or Fates (Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos).
Second, the titans that are sons of the primordial Gods.
Third, The Titans War and the Olympian Gods Era.
Fourth, The Oceanic and Chthonic Gods.
Zeus is only the king of the gods of Olympus. The gods that are above all the others are Ananke, Chaos and Chronos (Maybe this one is not that much, but it makes sense to me).
And one more thing: the Roman Mythology its not the same as the Greek Mythology. It may have some similarities, but there are other things that makes differences between them. Its true that most of the Roman Mythology is based on the Greek Mythology, but they have other stories, other cultures that doesn't exist in the Greek Mythology.
But he is the king of the actual gods and some titans.
I'm a student and this week I have a project to do, a little website. I chose mythology as my theme and I want some modern representation of gods. We were wandering if you would let us use it.
