Zeus is the “Parent of Gods and Men” in Greek mythology, who controlled the Olympians of Mount Olympus like a father would rule his family. In Greek mythology, he was the deity of the sky and thunder. Jupiter was his Roman counterpart, and Tinia was his Etruscan counterpart. Zeus was the youngest of his siblings and the son of Cronus and Rhea. He was married to Hera in most traditions, although his consort at the oracle of Dodona was Dione: according to the Iliad, he is the father of Aphrodite by Dione.
