Poseidon was an independent God, and asserted himself
He was known as the "God who holds the earth"
At one point the Gods of olympus decided Zeus had gone too far with his arrogance
Poseidon, Hera, and Apollo worked together to trap Zeus on Olympus
Zeus often left his post at Olympus to have affairs with mortals
Zeus "did not seem appropriate or dignified
•Zeus was known to the Romans as the God “Jupiter”. Because the Romans were very big on law and good behavior, they had to change Zeus’ character because he had so many faults.
Poseidon is a God who shows compassion, leadership, power, and empathy
Poseidon can relate well to others because he is laid back, not self absorbed, meaning he would be good at reasoning and problem solving. It also shows Zeus, the current authority, isn’t fit to rule Olympus.
