Battle of the Gods: Greeks vs. Romans
We all know about the Olympians and the other Greek gods, but have you ever wondered about how they are different from the Roman gods?

- From : Jaret Donnelly



Zeus and Jupiter


Rounding out the Big Three, this time, we're looking at the comparisons between Zeus and Jupiter. Ready to learn all about both of them?

Zeus: is the Greek God of the Sky and Thunder. Known for having many children, bpth mortal and immortal, Zeus is seen as someone who is strong and has leadership, so you shouldn't mess with him. AT ALL! He is married to his sister, Hera and became the ruler of the Gods after defeating his father, Cronus. The main items you would see Zeus with, is his lightning bolts and Eagle that retrieves them.

Jupiter: is the Roman God of the Sky and Thunder. If you have ever heard of the Roman God Jove, Latin, Luppiter, Lovis or Diespieter, those are also just Jupiter with a different name. He is also a sort of playboy, similar to his Greek counterpart. His wife is his sister, Juno and he came to be ruler similarly to Zeus, although Jupiter did not overthrow his father, Saturn. In the same fashion as Zeus, Jupiter's main items are the lightning bolt and Eagle.

Again, just like with Poseidon and Neptune, there really is not much of a difference here. They seem the same, just each has their own people.

Suggestions on who to compare next? Let me know!
