Most Significant God in Greek Mythology


In James M. Hurst “The Olympians”, Zeus is the most significant god in Greek Mythology that portrays and image that is powerful and dangerous sometimes also strategic when necessary.


Zeus is powerful because he overthrew his father and took over control. He is dangerous because if you get on his bad side then he will punish you. Lastly, he is strategic because he had to think of a plan to overthrow his father.


For example, Zeus played a powerful role in ruling over the Greek Olympian Pantheon.



“Zeus played a dominant role, presiding over the Greek Olympian Pantheon” (zeus).


This shows that Zeus is strategic because he was in a cave for most of his life planning how he was going to take down his father. The reason he was doing that is because he thought what his father was doing was wrong and he also did that for his siblings because he swallowed all of them.


Lastly, Zeus overthrew his father for the best future that he envisioned and for the best for his family. His impact can still be recognized today in Greek mythology because he overthrew his father which nobody else could do and make their life better.
