The Greek God In ancient Greece they had many gods. Gods for war for love, and even a god for hate. But there had to be one god that they feared and worshiped the most and this was Zeus. They even called Zeus 'the Ruler of Gods'. Zeus's War with the Titans Zeus's father Cronus had swallowed all of Zeus's siblings because a prophecy told him his son would overthrow him. Zeus got lucky because of his mother and then forced his father to spit out his siblings. Cronus did this and this led to the war between the Titans and Olympians. Zeus and all the other Olympians defeated the Titans and during this battle Zeus killed his father. Because of this act Zeus became the Ruler of Gods. Citation Ghare, Madhavi. "Zeus - The Greek God."
