A2Z 26

Z for – you guessed it, Zeus! Zeus is the Olympian god of the sky and the thunder, the king of all other gods and men, and, consequently, the chief figure in Greek mythology. The son of Cronus and Rhea, he is famous for his infidelity to his sister and wife, Hera. Athena, Apollo and Artemis, Hermes, Dionysus, Heracles, Helen of Troy, and the Muses are all children of his numerous erotic affairs. Hephaestus, Hebe, and Ares are his legitimate children.

His name comes from the Ancient Greek word bright and has a close connection with dies, which is the Latin word for “day” and has a very ancient history. He was respected as an all father who was chief of the gods and assigned roles to the others. Therefore, many mythologists believe that Zeus is one of the oldest Greek gods.

Zeus is portrayed with a scepter in one hand and a thunderbolt in the other – both symbols of his authority.
