Zeus

The most significant God in Greek Mythology

Thesis Statement and Summary

In Joel Skidmore’s Mythweb.com, Zeus is the most significant God in Greek Mythology that Portays leadership, wisdom, and ferocity to those who threaten him.Zeus has a history of fighting Gods in multiple myths, one of the more well-known myths is Zeus overthrowing his father Cronus.Cronus was married with Rhea, at the top of Mount Olympus. Cronus feared that his kids will overthrow him, so he ate them whole. Rhea then hid her next baby, Zeus in a cave who grew up to destroy his father.

Introoduction and Evidence

For example, "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).

Exlanation and Conclusion

This shows that Zeus fought Cronus, destroying Cronus. They all fought and crushed the other Titans, throwing them into the pit of Tartarus. Afterwards they all agreed Zeus to become the leader of all the Gods.

Even though he had to fight and defeat his father, he is now the king of all the Gods, and the mortals. Zeus had an impact in Greek Mythology by being the justice and well-being to the Greeks, punishing all who is bad and rewarding those who are good.
