Transcript of Poseidon
Amphitrite, Poseidon's wife, is another minor god who is the creator of all the oceans great beauties.
•He was the great Olympian god of the sea, rivers, flood and drought, earthquakes, and horses.
•He was a son of Cronus and Rhea
•He was accordingly a brother of Zeus, Hades, Hera, Hestia and Demeter, and it was determined by lot that he should rule over the sea.
•Like his brothers and sisters, he was, after his birth, swallowed by his father Cronus, but thrown up again.
•Poseidon is described as indeed equal to Zeus in dignity, but weaker.
In the story The Odyssey, Poseidon shows relentless anger toward Odysseus. Poseidon used his power to terrorize other people or cities if the somehow angered him.
Another myth about Poseidon is when he got into a contest with Athena over Athens, but became very in raged when he lost.
Some say that when anyone offended Poseidon, he used to strike the ground with his trident, causing earthquakes and shipwrecks. He is known as the 'earth-shaker'. To avoid his anger, sailors used to pray to him for a safe journey.
