Transcript of Poseidon God of the Sea
Greek Gods and Goddesses
Greek gods and goddesses were thought to be the reason why things happened.
Before gods and goddesses there were Titans. From those Titans gods and goddesses were formed.
The gods overthrew the Titans with something that would destroy them, The Kracken.
The Kracken is supposedly the most horrifying thing ever created.
Poseidon is a greek god. Known as "God of the Sea".
Poseidon was the second most powerful god between his brothers Zeus and Hades.
Poseidon looks like a man with a sturdy build, a dark beard, and holding a trident.
Poseidon is the son of Cronus and Rhea.
Poseidon was born in a flock of lambs by Rhea.
He and his siblings were swallowed by their father Cronus.
Later, Cronus was poisoned and forced to bring back all of the children.
Poseidon lives deep in the sea; in a palace near Aegae in Euboea.
Poseidon's spouse is Amphitrite.
Their relationship was predicted by the mother of Poseidon, Rhea.
She held Amphitrite in her arms and talked to her.
