Transcript of Zeus by Nathan Jamieson

Zeus Cronus' Prophecy Zeus was the sixth child of the ruling Titan god Cronus and the goddess Rhea. Cronus was fearful of
the prophecy that one of his children would overthrow
him so, he ate each of his children shortly after they were born to prevent it from happening. Zeus was the first to escape the fate of being swallowed by his father. How Zeus escaped How Zeus and his brothers got their weapons to kill their father How Zeus and his
brothers killed his father Now ready for battle, the brothers began to battle
their father and his troops. The war was
long and bloody. The brothers won when the
invisible Hades crept up behind Cronus, Poseidon
paralyzed him with his trident, and Zeus
knocked him to the ground with his thunderbolts.
The Olympians had just begun . His mother and the goddess Metis made a special potion for Zeus to slip into Cronus' drink. When Cronus drank the potion, he throw-up Zeus' five siblings- Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades, and Poseidon. A Cyclopes presents the brothers with gifts to show his thanks. He gave Zeus his thunderbolt, Poseidon his trident, and gave Hades a helmet that, when worn, makes the person invisible . How Zeus won the skies Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades had a draw to see who will
