All about me...... Zeus

Zeus was the son of Cronus and Rhea. Cronus had eaten all of Zeus' siblings so Rhea gAve Cronus a rock wrapped in swaddling paper while the real Zeus was in Crete. Zeus is the most powerful God there is. He is the most powerful god of Mount Olympus. He defeated his father for the position of the most powerful god. Zeus' power that put him at the top was the thunderbolt. His symbols are a shield, oak tree, bull, and an eagle. Zeus was married to Hera but there many more love affairs than just her. His daughter, Athena, was born through his forehead fully armed. Athena was his favorite child possibly because they spent so much time together.
