Zeus overthrew his Father Cronus. Zeus then drew lots with his brothers Poseidon and Hades. Zeus won the draw and became the supreme ruler of the gods. He is lord of the sky, the rain god and his weapon is a thunderbolt, which he hurls at those who displease him. Zeus is married to Hera, but is famous for his many affairs. He is also known to punish those that lie or break oaths.
