Big image


When Zeus was born, his father Cronus was going to swallow him as he had all of his sisters and brothers but Rhea his mom tend to hide him in a cage so Cronus would not swallow him. Then as Zeus got older he set free and Zeus caused Cronus to vomit up his siblings. And after that Zeus was fighting to take over his father spot as the God because his father was a bad person.

Greek Gods: Zeus


For example, Zeus and his brothers divided up creation on what they are going to work on.


Zeus states, “Having vanquished his father and the other Titans, Zeus imprisoned most of them in the underworld of Tartarus” (Hunt).


This shows that Zeus is determined to take over his father spot because of the bad things he has done, Zeus wants to take over and be the god. Cronus is not fit to be a god, that’s why Zeus is fighting for the spot. After all Cronus did swallow his kids. What if later on in the future he try to swallow people to get his way. So this is why Zeus is trying to be god.


Zeus fought for what was right to be god, and he got the position , and him and his brothers divided creations
