Zeus

Zeus, known as Jupiter or Jove in Roman mythology, was the king of the gods. He was known as the All-Highest Thunderer and was the personification of the sky and all that came from it. As the ruler the gods he was the guardian of political order and peace. Out of all the higher powers, only the Fates and Destiny were able to oppose him. Zeus was attended by Nike (Victoria), the goddess of victory. As Jupiter he was often shown attended by Fama, goddess of fame or by Fortuna, goddess of fortune.

Zeus was married to Hera, but was prone to affairs with mortals. These affairs often produced children, the most famous being Herakles (Hercules).
