His children included the goddess Aphrodite; the gods Apollo, Dionysus, and Hermes; and the mortal heroes Perseus and Heracles ( Hercules in Latin). The goddess Athena was born out of Zeus's head.

Zeus's brothers were the gods Hades and Poseidon. Hades ruled the underworld, and Poseidon ruled the seas. The goddesses Demeter, Hera, and Hestia were Zeus's sisters.

Zeus was the son of Cronus and Rhea

Zeus then took Cronus' place and ruled from his home on Mount Olympus.
