The Most Significant God

Thesis Statement

In Joel Skidmore’s "Mythweb.com", Zeus is the most remarkable god in Greek Mythology that illustrates his bravery and intelligence through his actions.


Zeus had a great impact on Greek Mythology. When Zeus was born he was supposed to be swallowed by Cronus like the rest of his siblings that were handed to him an swallowed in one gulp. Zeus did not end up getting swallowed by his monsterous father due to a plan by his mother. A few years later when Zeus grew up he made Cronus vomit up all his siblings. From then they helped overthrow the Titans and the King to rule the universe.


For example, Zeus and his siblings overthrew their father leaving him powerless and they ruled the world.


“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).


This shows Zeus’ fearlessness and intelligence because Cronus was the king and Zeus’ dad but he poisone him and took over power. This means that Zeus was way brave and smarter than his father ever was because Zeus managed to take him out when his father was supposed to be some type of amazing king.


Ultimately, Zeus was not only courageous and had great mental capacity but he was a significant god that did whatever he needed to succeed. Zeus made a huge imact on greek mythology because no one can overthrow him because his brothers own the other parts of the world and they can be punished.
