Who is Zeus?

    Zeus is "the father of gods". Zeus is also the god of weather, fate, and law and order. Zeus has two brothers who are Poseidon and Hades and is the child of Cronus and Rhea. His "power" or fighting technic is that he hurls thunder bolt or lightning bolt at those who displease him. Also Zeus punishes those who lie or break oaths. Also Zeus has been part of many different wars such as The Titan War, The War of Giants, and The Trojan War. Zeus was also considered the greatest Olympian gods, he obtained the heavens and the upper regions.

His Family and Relations!

Zeus is married to Hera, but is known for having many, many, many affairs. Also, Zeus is the father of many sons and daughters, which some are Apollon, Ate, Dike, Aspos, and many more. He has brothers and sisters which include Hades, Poseidon, Demeter and Hestia.

His Responsibilities!

Zeus is the ruler of Mount Olympus, and like I said before, he watches over people, since he is the "King of the Gods". He uses a lightning bolt to also watch over people, and hurl it at people who displease him.
