Quote

“When he had grown up, Zeus caused Cronus to vomit up his sisters and brothers, and these gods joined him in fighting to wrest control of the universe from the Titans and Cronus, their king” (Skidmore).

Explanation

Zeus is included in many myths, but in this one particular he won his place as basically the leader of Mt. Olympus. Cronus, Zeus’s father, killed Zeus’s grandfather Uranus god of the sky. Uranus in anger cursed Cronus saying that one day his own son would overthrow him. When Rhea gave birth to her fist five children, Cronus swallowed them. Rhea wanted to have a son, so when Zeus was born, she wrapped a stone in baby clothes instead of Zeus and Cronus choked. Coughing up Zeus’s siblings, they grew up together and defeated the Titans, and soon Zeus overthrew Cronus, just like Uranus said in the beginning. Zeus models leadership, and being almighty and in control.

Conclusion

Therefore, this is only one of the many ways he shows he says what goes in Mt. Olympus and how he became supreme god. Zeus has made an impact on an ideal way a guy should be like, strong mentally and make decisions for the better of others. Concluding that Zeus is the most significant god in Greek mythology.
