Zeus is the Hellenic King of the Gods who rules from His throne on Mount Olympus. He rules over the sky, thunder, contracts and the code of hospitality.

Zeus Family and Life

According to legend, Zeus was the youngest child of Cronus and Rhea. Cronus swallowed all of His children as they were born, but when Zeus was born, Rhea hid Him and gave His father, Cronus, a stone wrapped in swaddling clothes to swallow instead.

With Gaia’s help, Rhea hid the baby from Cronus in a cave where He was fed on goat’s milk and honey and raised to adulthood by nymphs.

Upon reaching adulthood, Zeus challenged His father and forced him to vomit up all of His brothers and sisters in reverse order, as well as the stone which was swallowed last (& thus vomited first). Zeus and all of His brothers and sisters, as well as the Cyclopes, the Hecatonchires and the Gigantes,  made war on Cronus and finally won.

Zeus on His brothers Poseidon and Hades then drew lots to see which parts of Cronus’s realm each would rule. Zeus chose sky, Hades the underworld, and Poseidon the sea. Gaia, the Earth, could not be claimed.

Zeus is often identified with the Roman God Jupiter.
