His childhood was guarded by cruets, (young soldiers) as he grew to be a man. Even when he was a baby, they clashed their weapons against each other to obscure the sound of his crys.
His life as an adult was that once Zeus was a full grown man, he led a revolt against the titans, and overthrow his father Cronus, (maybe with the help of his brothers, Hades & Poseidon).


Zeus look like a grown man with Long white hair, In a very good shape, he also had long white beard, he always has a lightning bolt in his hand & in all of his pictures he has white clothes.

In the beginning Zeus was the youngest son of the Titan Cronus and goddess Rhea. When he was born, his father Cronus intended to swallow him. But his mother hid him in a cave. In the middle of the story when he had grown up, Zeus caused Cronus to vomit up his sisters and brothers, & these gods joined Zeus to fight and gain control to the universe over the titan Cronus. In the end Zeus and his brothers Poseidon, & Hades divided up creation Hades got the underworld, Poseidon the sea and Zeus got the sky. Also he became the supreme authority.
In this myth my god is presented like the most powerful, & he had the power to control the lightning.


In conclusion there are many other interesting facts that happen in this myth but one of the most important for me that Zeus made was that Zeus was the one that change the greek mythology when he grown up. Another fact is that Zeus break free to the Titan crius we don`t know why but he did. The other one is that Zeus often change shape into a bird to get womens attention & the last thing is that the Olympic games were initially dedicated to him.
