Greatest God in Greek Mythology

Thesis Statement

In James M. Hunt’s “The Olympians”, Zeus is the most significant god in Greek Mythology that portrays an image that is strong-minded, courageous, but also ruthless when necessary.


Zeus has a wide and powerful influence over various myths, gods, and goddesses in Greek Mythology. Out of the three brothers, Zeus overthrew his father. The brothers agreed on the division of creation. Zeus was made the god of the sky and most importantly, god of all gods. Without Zeus overthrowing his father, and reproducing with so many women, there wouldn’t be as many gods in Greek Mythology. Zeus is the most important god in Greek Mythology.


Zeus is the most powerful god in Greek Mythology and he definitely earned it. He was not only brave and never backed down, but he helped create the wonderful myths that are still talked about today.
