Zeus was one of the many gods that lived in Mount Olympus.
He lived there with his whole family. Mount Olympus is a place
made out of all clouds and mountains and is where only gods and goddesses
live. The only one who did not live there was Hades, who lived in the underworld.
Since Zeus is a god, he lives in Mount Olympus, too. His family is
a very large family and he had hundreds of brothers and sisters.
His father was Cronus and Zeus was also the father of Apollo and Artemis.
Artemis and Apollo were brother and sister. One of his wives was Hera and
she was very beautiful. Zeus was the Alpha of the gods. He
ruled Mount Olimpus and created everyone. Zeus' father Cronus
never knew that Zeus was born because his mother Rhea had Zeus on an island.
The reason why Cronus was after Zeus was because he did not want anyone
else taking over Mount Olympus. Cronus wanted to take over by himself.
That was why Cronus was eating all of Zeus' brothers and sisters.
Zeus married lots of women in his life. He married Metis but
Metis passed away. After Metis passed away, Zeus married Hera. She
was a very beautiful goddess. No one really knows what happened with
Zeus and his family, but we have evidence that it might be true!
