The rest of Greek Mythology
Greek mythology can be very confusing or very simple. It can be fun or boring, but it is the religion of some people in Greece. Although this religion has been around for a long time, it still exists today.

Zeus is the god of the sky. Zeus actually overthrew his father Cronus and then drew lots with his brothers Poseidon and Hades, in order to decide who would take over the throne in place of their father. Zeus won, and this is why he is considered "The God of All Gods". Zeus is also called the phenomena of the sky. Zeus married Hera and had 7 children. The 7 children are Apollo , Artemis, Athena, Dionysus, Hermes, Heracles (Latin name for Hercules), and Perseus.
Greek mythology is a religion just like Christianity, Buddhism, Jainism, and so on. Like the Egyptians, the people of Greece believed in many gods. The gods' names are as follows, Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Ares, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Hephaestus, Nike, Aphrodite, Hercules, and either Dionysus or Hestia. Dionysus and Hestia are the same person just told in different myths. To most people Greek Mythology is confusing but interesting, but to the people that follow this religion it is simple. I have chosen to talk about Zeus.
The Greek Times
Zeus and his brothers
Zeus has 2 brothers. Their names are Poseidon and Hades. They had a competition to decide who would take the throne after their father. Like I said, Zeus won, and this is why Zeus is considered the God of all gods.
Greek myths always tell about the 12 gods and goddesses, but actually there are 14, however there were never more than 12 at one time. The 4 alternative gods are Hestia, Hades, Dionysus, and Demeter.
What is greek mythology
this is a picture of Mount Olympus. The Greek gods live up in the clouds above Mount Olympus, so I chose this picture.
