Roman Name: Jupiter
Zeus was the strongest and mightiest of all the Greek Gods. He wields the devastating thunderbolt and his breastplate the legendary aegis. Zeus and his brothers (Poseidon and Hades) drew which lots for their share of the universe; Hades got the underworld, Poseidon the sea, and Zeus who is Lord of the sky. He is also the rain-God, and cloud-gatherer. Zeus is married to his sister Hera. He is always chasing after woman, and cheats on his wife, which is how Hercules was born. Zeus never pitied anyone, and detested the human race, after Prometheus giving them fire. The symbols of him are the eagle, and the Oak tree.
