Zeus, King of gods, and god of the sky, was the highest of gods, and the boss of Olympians.

Zeus and the Olympians won the apocalyptic battle against the Titans. After war, he and his brothers Poseidon and Hades drew lots to divide up the world between the seas, the sky and the underworld. Zeus won the sky.

On a ego trip, Zeus began hooking up with every available mortal woman, nymph, demigod and goddess he could find.  As a result, he fathered many children including the hero Heracles, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Hermes, and Dionysus.

Zeus married seven times with the final wife being his sister Hera.   They had three offspring together, Ares, Hephaestus and Hebe.  Their marriage was a wild ride.  Zeus continued to have love affairs and the scorned goddess poured most of her energy into pursuing, punishing and persecuting her husband's mistresses and bastard children.  See our colorway the Love Affair of Zeus and Hera.

Zeus is a variegated colorway of grey and aqua.
