Jupiter is the supreme god of the Romans. The equivalent of the Greek Zeus, with almost identical divine functions. He is revered as the greatest god, the ruler of heaven and earth, gods and people.
According to the myth, he came to power by overthrowing his father Saturn (from the Greeks – Krona). His brothers are, among others, Pluto and Neptune (Hades and Poseidon). Jupiter is married to Juno (Hera).
Despite that holy, divine marriage, Zeus is known for a huge number of children, with mortals and other goddesses.
Jupiter – Meaning and Info
His first wife was the goddess Metis, who was adorned with great wisdom and prudence. When the prophecy told him that if he had a male child with Metis, that child would overthrow him, Zeus swallowed Metis.
However, it settled in his head and stayed there for a while.
When Zeus once felt a great headache, he asked his son Hephaestus to help him. He hit him on the head with his hammer a couple of times, and out of it came the beautiful and too clever goddess of wisdom Athena.
Athena, therefore, was born in this extremely unusual way, the child of Zeus and Metis.
However, not all the goddesses and mortals that Zeus would cast an eye on immediately accepted his courtship. He therefore came to her in various ways to get to his favorites.
There is a well-known example of the goddess Nemesis, who ran away from Zeus, turning into various animals.
Zeus used cunning and turned himself into a wounded swan. Nemesis took pity on the swan and took him in her arms.
After this, Nemesis laid a large egg which she left. This egg was found by the Spartan queen Leda and taken.
Later, the most beautiful woman in the world, Helena of Troy, hatched from it. And there is a variant of the myth according to which the Queen of Ice herself gave birth to Helen after her relationship with Zeus.
The father kept the mortal Danai trapped in the basement, so that she would not conceive, after the prophet told him that his grandson would kill him. Zeus liked Danae very much, he went through the cracks in the basement walls in the form of golden rain and reached Danae. From that relationship, the great hero Perseus was born.
The beautiful Alcmene, whom Zeus was interested in, was persistent in her desire to remain faithful to her husband.
But, when on one occasion her husband was absent, Zeus took his form and spent the night with Alcmene on deception. Nine months later, Ackleman gave birth to Hercules, a hero of superhuman strength.
The beauty of Europe was guarding her father’s herd of cattle when she saw a beautiful white bull with golden horns. She approached him, decorated his horns with flowers and then climbed on his back. The disguised Zeus ran with the girl on his back even to Crete.
As we can see, some of the most important personalities of ancient Greece were born from Zeus’ extramarital affairs. Zeus was also the father of Hermes (Mercury), twins Apollo and Artemis (Diana) and many others.
Hera reacted very negatively to his infidelities. She persecuted all of Zeus’ mistresses and especially abused his illegitimate children. When she once took Hercules by the tooth, Zeus decided to exaggerate and as a punishment he hung her tied to her leg hanging from the clouds for several hundred years.
In both the Greeks and the Romans, Zeus, that is, Jupiter, was connected with almost all celestial phenomena.
The Romans considered him to be the bringer of rain, so as such he received the epithet Pluvius (“rain-bearer”). He was also considered a thundered (Fulgurator, in Greek ‘Ευρύοπα [Euriopa]).
To appease him, the Greeks prepared numerous games for him. The Olympic Games were founded in honor of Zeus.
In art, he is depicted as a tall man with a serious face, long beard, with a ribbon around his head, often with lightning in his hands.
