Aside from being entitled of different titles like supreme God and ruler of Olympian, he was also known as the Zeus the thunderer, lord of the sky and more. He is the controller of the sky, and the power of lightning and thunder which is the main reason why he was entitled of such iconic labels.

Zeus is married to Hera who has a nickname “cow-faced” but he had actually number of wives who bore him many children such as Titaness, Leto, Metos and Themis. That’s not yet the end because aside from having numerous wives, he was also known for having affairs with moral women.
