Zeus(zoose or zyoose), the supreme god was the son of the Titans Chronus and Rhea. Immediately after his birth, Rhea took him and hid him in cave on a mountain in Crete. She did this because Chronus wanted to kill Zeus as he had his previous five children, for a prophecy had foretold that one would rise to overthrow him.
Within the cave, the young Zeus was suckled by the goat Alamathea, and the Curetes which were friendly demi-gods, drowned his cries by bashing their swords against their shields.
When Zeus was grown, he did overthrow his father, and he then drew lots with his brothers, Poseidon and Hades, to decide where they each would rule. Zeus chose the heavens, Poseidon the sea, and Hades took the underworld.
Zeus's sisters were Demeter, Hera, and Hestia, of which Demeter and Hera were were Olympian gods. Zeus also fathered Artemis and Apollo with Leto. Zeus had many other children, some of which were gods, and some that weren't.
Zeus was cheif of the gods, and he lived at Olympus, whose location is not clearly understood. Early on in Greek myth, it is probably considered the top of mount Olympus, but later known as a place between heaven and earth.
