A Month of Devotional Thought — Zeus, Day 5

As Zeus is the youngest son of Chronos and Rhea, he has five siblings. They are Hestia, Haides, Demeter, Poseidon, and Hera. He has five uncles and five aunts who are first-Generation Titans and he is the grandson of Ouranos and Gaea. He is also the father of Apollon, Ares, Artemis, Athena, Dionysus, Hephaestus, Hermes, Iris, and many of the most well-known heroes of Hellas.

Although Aphrodite is sometimes also called a child of Zeus, there are different myths that place her as one of the Protogonoi so I have not included her in that list.

There are also many others among the Theoi who have connections with Zeus, but those connections will be the subject of tomorrow’s post
