Zeus is the King of the Olympians, and associated as the God of Sky, Thunder and Lightning. Often considered the greatest of the Olympian Gods, he is one of the most famous mythological being, his exploits as well known as his progeny, with infidelity caused him to have many gods, goddesses and demigods to be his children. Literature of the Hellenistic or Greek Mythology comes from a poem recorded by Hesiod in the 8th century BC called the Theogony, which recalled the rise of the Greek Gods and the fall of the Titans.
Zeus was the youngest son of the Titan Cronus or Kronos, Kronos himself is a son of Uranus, a first generation Titan. Kronos had overthrown Uranus in a battle, but was then prohesised to be overthrown by his children, just as he overthrown Uranus. In an attempt to make sure that this prophecy never happens, Kronos would consume and swallow each of his children whole, the mother of said children was his sister-wife Rhea. When Rhea gave birth to Zeus, Kronos was tricked by Rhea who switched Zeus with a rock wrapped in a blanket. Rhea then took Zeus in a cave in the island of Crete, which he was raised by a deity called Amalthea. As Zeus reached adulthood, he masqueraded as a cupbearer for Cronus, and when he was confirmed to be his servant, one of the Titaness, Metis gave him a mixture of mustard and wine which caused Cronos to throw up his consumed children. This was the start of a ten-year conflict known as the Titanomachy or the Battle of the Gods, which was a battle for the control of the universe with Zeus and his siblings on one side, and Cronus and his Titans. For ten years, the Olympian gods and Titans fought each other, in a series of battles. In the end, the Olympians won and imprisoned most of the Titans in Tartarus. Zeus and his siblings then divided the universe, with Zeus gaining control of the sky and lightning and became leader of the Olympians.
