Most significant god in Greek Mythology
Zeus overthrew his father, Cronus, by forcing his father to vomit up his brothers and sisters. This allowed them to help Zeus fight him and the Titans for control of the universe. Zeus imprisoned them in the underworld of Tartarus.
“Having vanquished his father and the other Titans, Zeus imprisoned most of them in the underworld of Tartarus” (Skidmore).
Overall, Zeus’ bravery and power, he was able to become the supreme god of the Olympians. Defeating his father also gave his brothers, Poseidon and Hades, power.
