Zeus: God of Thunder

King of the Gods of Olympus

Zeus, the mighty king of the gods of Olympus, was born of the Titans Cronus and Rhea. Cronus, fearing to be overthrown by one of his children, devoured them at birth. But when Zeus was born, Rhea managed to save him by hiding him in a cave in Crete, and instead gave Cronus a stone wrapped in swaddling clothes, which he swallowed without realizing it. Zeus grew up in secret, and as an adult, he defied his father by forcing his brothers and sisters to vomit, giving rise to the Titanomachy.

As ruler of Olympus, Zeus was the god of heaven and thunder, known for his strength and justice, but also for his temper and his numerous love affairs with both goddesses and mortals. From his throne atop Mount Olympus, Zeus ruled over gods and humans, dispensing justice and unleashing his fury in the form of storms when challenged. He is undoubtedly the one who maintains order in the world.
