In an underwater palace in the Aegean sea of Greece, there lived Poseidon, the lord of the sea. Even though he was one of the superior gods of Mount Olympus, he spent most of his days deep under water. A long time ago, Poseidon and his brother Zeus, the god of the sky and the ruler of the Olympian gods along with his brother Hades, the lord of the underworld and the ruler of the dead fought their father Cronus. Together they destroyed their evil and vicious father who once tried to eat them in the fear of a prophecy that he would be overthrown by his own child. Since then, the three brothers had walked in separate ways and never reunited with one another. Nor did they look into each other’s eyes ever again.
Even though Zeus and Poseidon are brothers and both are considered Greek gods according to Ancient Greek mythology, the two differ in how they were treated at birth
Both Athena and Poseidon are gods, and both are under the rule of Zeus, however they are very different in the way they have interactions with Odysseus. Athena, the gray-eyed goddess help Odysseus on his journey, and also helps Penelpoe and Telemachus with their personal struggles. Poseidon, on the other hand has a grudge against Odysseus for maiming his offspring, the Cyclops. When Odysseus revealed his real name to the Cyclops, the Cyclops called upon Poseidon to curse him and make his journey even harder. In a way, it is like Athena and Poseidon are battling against each others' will. Athena is trying to make sure Odysseus makes it home safe, while Poseidon is trying to make his homeward journey as difficult as possible.
At least Hades defends us when some of the gods were ganging up on us. Poseidon just sits there and Zeus let's everyone disrespect his child if you chose him to be your father. He only speaks up because Ares was being to hyped. Wanting to fight a 17 year old. He should be ashamed of himself with his grown ass.
Poseidon is hit and goes down, so he thought. Out of nowhere the floor under Zeus crumbles into a blackhole of water under him. Poseidon from above him starts to smirk. Hades is missing the attention, he throws his mighty trident at his brother. Poseidon moves as swiftly and quickly as the wind but the trident was faster, and cuts his cheek. Poseidon, fures and hurt, he charges at Hades with his mighty trident.
"Zeus, you don't have to worry about that, we will not harm those pathetic mortals. I mean, come on, why would I do that? I mean no harm to those mortals. I just want my son," Poseidon said
God of the sea and rivers, creator of storms and floods, and the bringer of earthquakes and destruction, Poseidon was perhaps the most disruptive of all the ancient Greek gods, not only for mortals but also to Zeus’ peaceful reign on Olympus. (Cartwright). Poseidon often created storms and floods for no reason. This shows that Poseidon truly was disruptive. Seemingly not content with this alone, Poseidon often interfered in the plans of Zeus, and once even attempted to overthrow his brother with the aid of Hera and Athena. It was as punishment for this treachery that Poseidon was made to build the magnificent walls of Troy (Cartwright). Poseidon often times tried to mess with Zeus. This is one of the many times that Poseidon was disruptive to the gods on Olympus. He and Athena competed for possession of the city of Athens. To sway the people in his favor, Poseidon made a spring at Acropolis, but Athena, on the other hand, gave them the olive tree. With it, she won the contest (“Greek”). Poseidon tried to gain control over Athens but failed when Athena provided the more useful gift. Also one of the many examples as to how Poseidon was disruptive to even mere mortals. So with all of this being said, I thinks it’s correct to say that Poseidon was a very disruptive
He thought they would grow to gain much power, which in return they did. Much like the the greek tragedy of Opedius Rex, whose father attempted to kill him in fear of what he might do in the future, but in return, causing exactly what his father had once feared. With this win on his belt, he is appointed the spot of ruler and god of Olympus. He controls the sky and lightning, creating storms whenever he desires. However, if a battle were to break out between Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades, I believe Poseidon will win. They are all immortal, and they all come from the same parents, but Poseidon has more domain as he can withstand any degree of water pressure. Also, he can generate water from his body, use the sea waves to teleport, and he can breath underwater. Zeus only gained the position of king because he defeated Kronos; Poseidon could have but he was inside Kronos' stomach while Zeus was outside. Zeus is the youngest so his mother was able to get him away before he was too eaten. His power is due to his mother and pure chance. In contrast, Poseidon can control the seas and create storms, which is actually in Zeus' domain because it involves the sky. Additionally, he can make earthquakes which happens on earth, so it intertwines with Hades' domain. Poseidon can control his own domain, plus a fraction Hades and Zeus' domain, which in return makes him stronger the stronger of the three. Zeus is no more powerful than his siblings in strength and capabilities; Zeus is the most powerful god in terms of influence. As the king of the Greek Gods, Zeus is commonly portrayed in art, often with specific aspects identify him and his purpose. For example, early classical vase paintings display him throwing thunderbolts, identifying him as a powerful warrior. Also, some of the earliest portrayals of Zeus is evident in the writings of greek poets,

In grade school, my teacher scribbled on my paper in bold red ink, “Great story! You should be an author. Do you know what that is?” My dream to write a Memoir was born.
Many years ago, there was a clash between Zeus and Poseidon. Poseidon felt jealous of his brother, for Poseidon always tried to provide calm waters for the fishermen of a tiny village, allowing them to feed their families. However, the fishermen praised Zeus for providing calm winds to be able to sail by, enabling them to catch fish. In their ignorance, they didn’t see Poseidon’s hard work filling their nets with fish and calm waters and neglected him and his temples. All along, however, the temples to Zeus would fill with worshippers, and feasts were held in his Zeus’s honor, while Poseidon’s temples continued to fall into disrepair.Many
Poseidon is the ancient Greek god who resembles the power of the untamed, the brutal, and the wild. After the defeat of the Titans, Poseidon drew straws with his brothers and got the middle straw. Therefore, he became the lord of the Sea, earthquakes, and horses. The Romans knew Poseidon as Neptune. He is also associated with clouds, which was essential to agriculture. Poseidon could create springs, floods, and even tidal waves when angered. Besides the sea, Poseidon is also connected with the earth. It is believed that his anger is
Three brothers had to decide which to rule. Some believe that they drew straws to decide others believe that it was by choice. Hades became ruler of the underworld, Zeus became ruler of the sky, and Poseidon became the ruler of the sea. Not only was Poseidon ruler of the sea, but he also created the horse, he often transformed into a horse, especially when chasing a woman. Being ruler of the sea Poseidon had lots to manage. With his Trident, Poseidon could create earthquakes by hitting it on the ocean floor. Swirling up a storm was also one of the powers of the Trident. He controlled the exact conditions of the sea, sailors praised and asked Poseidon for safe travels across the it. Sailors praising him for safe travels caused him to become known as the god of travels too, Poseidon often traveled on a horse and chariot, even in the ocean (). The unity of power and an ill temper can become a bad
Another variable of this history says that Zeus, united forces with his brothers Poseidon and Hades for defeating his father and forced him to vomit up the other god's.
I love reading books and telling stories. I choose stories and books that I can relate to. When I feel a connection with the writer, I enjoy the book more. Using my experiences as a reader, I try to find ways to connect with my audience while writing and I found that story telling is the key to that connection. Storytelling is a great element to use when writing. It is not only a way to grab the audience’s attention; it is also a way to connect with them. I’m a great storyteller, because I always add my personal experiences to my writing and it helps me connect with my
