In Greek mythology Zeus was also known as the king of the gods and ruler of the heavens as well as being called “Father of Gods and men”. Zeus is known as the king of Mount Olympus, the home of all the other gods in the Greek myths. He is considered the god of clouds, rain, thunder, and lightning but he is also known to have many other powers, including his signature weapon, his lightning bolt, but his pet Pegasus would carry these lightning bolts whilst an angel he trained would fetch them. Zeus is both the youngest and the oldest out of his siblings, his father Cronus learned that one of his children would throw him out of Mount Olympus so he swallowed Zeus’ three sisters and two brothers, Demeter, Hera, Hestia, Hades, and Poseidon. Zeus’ mother, Rhea hid him from his father before his father could do the same. Rhea used a stone for the replacement baby. Time skip to Zeus poisoning his father by masking himself as a cupbearer where he vomited so much that he ultimately disgorged his siblings all intact and ready for revenge.
