Zeus was one of the most popular gods, and being the King of the Gods (the Big Man in charge), he was worshiped the most. He was an explanation of weather to the Greeks -- if there was a lightning storm, Zeus was angry -- as well as representing justice to the Greeks. Zeus brought order to Greek society by being so powerful that people feared his wrath. Zeus is a mythological god of the heaven and the world and he is also the king of gods. According to the Greek mythology he is the greatest among all gods. He is the god of the sky, weather, fate, and law and order. The best known myth about Zeus is the way he survived and then overthrew his father to take over the crown. His father was Cronus and his mother was named Rhea. Due to a prophecy which said that Cronus would be killed by his male offspring, Cronus used to swallow his children the moment they were born. However, Rhea fooled Cronus when Zeus was born and present him with a stone, which he promptly swallowed. Rhea then spirited baby Zeus to an island where he grew up.
