                          Poseidon , the brother of Zeus and Hadez and was the father of the hero Theseus,He was the god of sea, earthquakes, horses, and protector of all aquatic features. He had the power of all water, fresh and salt. He was widely worshipped by seamen.His weapon was a trident, with which he could make the earth shake, causing earthquakes, and shatter any object. He married Amphitrite, one of the granddaughters of the Titan Oceanus, but began to desire Demeter. To detire him, Demeter ask Poseidon to make the most beautiful animal that the world had ever seen. So Poseidon did it, trying to impress her, and created the first horse. But it didn't work, so when he finally created the horse he lost all desire for Demeter.
