Z is for Zeus #AtoZChallenge

For the A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of characters. On my normal blogging days, Monday – parenting, Wednesday – quotes, and Thursday – writing/publishing, I will focus on characteristics. On the other days (Tuesday, Friday and Saturday), I will write about characters from movies, TVs or books.

ZToday the letter is Z for Zeus, the Greek god of the sky and thunder and ruler of the gods of Mount Olympus. He is the youngest child of Cronus and Rhea and has fathered many godly and heroic offsprings, including Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Hermes, Perseus, Heracles and the Muses.

While some regarded Zeus as wise, fair and just, he also was unpredictable and easy to anger. He wielded a thunder bolt like a weapon of mass destruction. He was respected and awed by all Gods and mortals. Many kings boasted that they were descended from Zeus.

One thought on “Z is for Zeus #AtoZChallenge

  1. I’m not so sure about this guy. It’s hard to respect a god who turns himself into a swan just to have his way with a woman he fancies.
    Well done on completing the A-Z challenge; it’s quite an achievement, and it’s been fun.
    See you next year?
