Zeus with his hot-headed temper went on to build a luxurious place in Mt. Olympus and cast thunderbolts at will like always
Zeus was the god of the sky and ruler of the Olympian gods. He overthrew his father, Cronus, and then drew lots with his brothers Poseidon and Hades. In order to decide who would succeed their father on the throne. Zeus won the draw and became the supreme ruler of the gods, as well as lord of the sky and rain. His weapon was a thunderbolt which he hurled at those who displeased or defied him, especially liars and oathbreakers. He was married to Hera (his sister) but often tested her patience, as he was infamous for his many affairs.
Greek mythology, as in other ancient cultures, was used to explain the environment in which humankind lived. The natural phenomena and heroes they witnessed and the passing of time through the days, months, and seasons were also use to explain that. Myths were also connected to religion in the Greek world and explained the origin and lives of the gods, where humanity had come from and where it was going after death. Myths also gave advice on the best way to lead a happy life and were used to re-tell historical events so that people could maintain contact with their ancestors, the wars they fought, and the places they explored.
