Known to the Romans as Jupiter, or sometimes Jove, Zeus was the father of all the gods on Mount Olympus, although he was not the eldest. In the section on his father, Kronos, it is related how the god, afraid that his sons would overthrow him, ate each of his children as they were born, and had consumed five of them before his wife, Rhea, gave him a stone shaped like an infant to eat, and spirited the baby Zeus off to Mount Ida, where he grew up, unbeknownst to his father, and later returned to defeat the rebellious Titans, oust Kronos from the throne of Olympus, andpersuade his father to yield back the five children he had consumed.
