, the god of the sea, is the son of Cronus and Rhea, and together with his brothers Zeus
and Hades, they are involved in the division of Universe. While Poseidon became the ruler of the sea, Zeus ruled the sky and Hades got the underworld. Aside from being entitled as the Olympian god of the sea, he is considered as a god of many names. He is also known as “Earth-Shaker” or god of the earthquakes, the god of flood and drought and the god of horses. He is considered as the god of earthquakes because being the god of sea, the sea holds and surrounds the earth, thus, he has it in his power to shake the earth. And Poseidon, being the ruler of the sea, sailors relied upon him for a safe voyage on the sea because he has it in his power to grant a successful voyage and save those who are in danger.
The primary weapon of Poseidon is the trident or the silver three-pronged staff. He used this to call his powers of water, earthquakes and horses to perpetrate fear and punishment on people as a payback. But behind this negative outlook at him, he was still a good god because it was he who helped Greeks during the Trojan War.
