Roman Name: Neptune

 

Poseidon is the ruler of the Sea. He has an astonishing palace beneath the sea, but is most commonly found in Olympus. His brothers are Zeus and Hades. Poseidon’s wife was Amphirite, the grand-daughter of the Titan, Ocean. He was familiar to the name of “Earth-Shaker” because he fashioned the storms and winds of the seas. Poseidon would travel the seas upon his golden car, and as he rode past the waters would become calm. He first gave men horses, and was connected to have a symbol of a bull.
