I thought Zeus was kind of interesting so I made this page to give you some information about him. I hope you enjoy my webpage. If you have any ideas, comments, questions, or anything else email me at my address down below. And thanks for taking time to visit my page.
Zeus was the son of Cronus and Rhea
and the chief god of the Greeks. His father, Cronus, was known to
eat his children. Zeus' mother, Rhea, knowing Cronus would eat his newborn
son sent Zeus to Crete and wrapped a stone for Cronus to eat instead. In
Crete Zeus was fed on the milk of the goat Amalthaea and reared by nymphs.
His supernatural gift was the ability to wield thunderbolts. When
he was mature enough he came back home and forced his father, Cronus, to
disgorge the five earlier children with the help of his grandmother Gaia.
Zeus is described as falling in love with one woman after another and resorting
to all kinds of tricks to hide his infidelity from his wife. Olympic
games were celebrated in his honor every fourth year. The Nemean
games held at Nemea were also dedicated to Zeus. Zeus has been with
many women, but his wife was his sister, Hera.
