ANCIENT GREEK

.zeus

There are stories told, words spoken,truth hidden in the darkness, they say all legends are but a myth this truth is shrouded, i dare not speak of it, yet i may. Zeus king of the gods (son of rhea and cronus) ,Father of olympus, He is the god of sky and thunder in Greek mythology. His Roman counterpart isJupiterHindu counterpart is Indra and Etruscan counterpart is Tini

Zeus was brother and consort of Hera. By Hera, Zeus sired AresHebe and Hephaestus, though some accounts say that Hera produced these offspring alone. Some also include Eileithyia and Eris as their daughters. The conquests of Zeus among nymphs and the mythic mortal progenitors of Hellenicdynasties are famous. Olympian mythography even credits him with unions with LetoDemeterDione and Maia. Among mortals were SemeleIoEuropaand Leda (for more details, see below) and with the young Ganymede (although he was mortal Zeus granted him eternal youth and immortality).

Many myths render Hera as jealous of his amorous conquests and a consistent enemy of Zeus’ mistresses and their children by him. For a time, a nymphnamed Echo had the job of distracting Hera from his affairs by talking incessantly, and when Hera discovered the deception, she cursed Echo to repeat the words of others.
