The god Zeus

The fierce and powerful one


In Gordon Dean Hunt’s “The Olympians”, Zeus is the most significant god in Greek Mythology reveals an image that is fierce and powerful.


Zeus was the king of gods. He was the youngest son of the Titans Cronus and Rhea. Zeus then grew up and dethroned Cronus. He then became the ruler of the sky and earth and he and his brothers got together and divided up creation.


For example, Zeus became a powerful god after he defeated Cronus and then banished the other titans. Then he and his brothers divided up creation Zeus getting the sky Poseidon getting the sea and Hades getting the under world


In the article Gordon stated that “Zeus also was accorded supreme authority on earth and on Mount Olympus”.


The quotes from the text shows that even though Zeus wanted to stop his father reign on the throne but he probably only did for control over the universe. Since Zeus was the one that saved his sibling and was the one that banished the other titans he would be looked at as powerful god. Also he had to be fierce if he could beat Cronus.


Ultimately Zeus was the most significant because he was known as a powerful and fierce god.
