Transcript: MYTHOLOGY BACKGROUND A closer look at six of the greek gods and goddesses. Zeus ("Jupiter") Zeus The God of The Sky How was Zeus created? Birth Zeus, similar to other greek gods and goddesses has an interesting and abstract story of his creation. To stay brief; Zeus, born in 700 B.C. was the youngest of the titans "Cronus" and "Rhea". When Zeus was born, his father, Cronus intended to swallow him just like he did with his siblings. Instead, his mother, Rhea, hid him on a mountain called, "Mount Dicte" in Crete, which avoided him being swallowed along with his predecessors. (paraphrased from Mythweb) How Zeus became the god of the sky. Rise to power Once Zeus grew up hidden from Cronus, he eventually caused the titan(Cronus) to throw up his brothers and sisters, freeing them and allowing them to join him in fighting the Titans for control of the universe. Eventually, Zeus and his siblings vanquished the Titans (including his father) to Tartarus, the underworld. Once they had gained control of the universe, they divided up responsibility/godhood amongst themselves. (paraphrased from Mythweb) Three interesting facts about Zeus Interesting Facts 1. Zeus always kept a golden eagle by his side due to its semblance of strength and justice. 2. Zeus was very harsh in his punishment of mortals and other gods/goddesses. "For example, when Prometheus stole the fire and gave it to humans, Zeus punished him and had a giant eagle eat his liver daily" -Aleksandar Mishkov 3. One legend claims that Zeus was raised by a goat named "Amalthea". Soldiers would dance and shout when the goat was spotted to prevent Cronus from hearing the baby(Zeus) crying.

Once Hades was saved by Zeus, he joined forces with his siblings to regain control of the universe. How Hades became the god of death. Rise To Power Once Hades and his siblings regained control of the universe, powers and responsibilities were divided up among them. Hades got the underworld, this put him in charge of all death and made him the king of the underworld. Three interesting facts about Hades Interesting Facts 1. Alike Zeus, Hades had a pet. This pet was a dog with three heads named, "Cerberus". Cerberus was, in essence, the watchdog for the underworld. (paraphrased from Wikipedia) 2. Saying Hades' name was frowned upon in the society of that Era in fear of undergoing something tragic and ending up in the underworld. (paraphrased from EveryFactEver.com) 3. Hades is one of the least portrayed greek gods throughout history due to the fear surrounding what he represents. (paraphrased from EveryFactEver.com) Works Cited for Hades Works Cited !!

Cronus swallowed all of his children except Zeus. Eventually, Poseidon was saved by being vomited up by Cronus due to the actions of Zeus. Creation How Poseidon became the god of the sea Rise to Power Once Poseidon broke from the "grasp" of Cronus, him and his siblings fought the Titans for control of the universe. Once this battle was won by Poseidon and his siblings, power was divided up among them. Poseidon received the sea, and with this, the power of earthquakes, storms and horses. Three interesting facts about Poseidon Interesting Facts 1. Poseidon's "pet" was in fact Pegasus, a legendary winged horse. (Paraphrased from EveryFactEver.com) 2. During the "era of greek gods" sailors were so frightened of Poseidon that they would bring horses on board boats with the sole purpose of throwing them overboard in
