POSEIDON KING OF THE SEA
Poseidon was the ancient Greek God of the sea, earthquakes and horses. Cronus was the father of the Olympians who were Zeus, Poseidon and Hades of the Underworld. Cronus hated the idea of children this is why he ate them, including his own children. Poseidon was eaten by his father Cronus at birth and it was his brother Zeus who, after coming of age, tricked his father to disgorge him. Along with his siblings, Poseidon then helped Zeus and Hades overthrow their father to the death, they took over and then became the Great Olympians.
GREEK MYTHOLOGY POSEIDON
During the War of the Titanes, the Kyklopes (Cyclopes) crafted a magical trident for Poseidon, and together with his brothers Zeus and Hades he defeated the elder gods and imprisoned them in Tartaros. Poseidon and his brothers drew lots for the division of the cosmos after the fall of the Titan’s, and won the sea as his domain.
When the Gigantes (Giants) besieged the gods of Olympos, Poseidon crushed Polybotes beneath the island of Kos (Cos). He entered a contest with the goddess Athena for dominion over Athens and produced the very first horse as a gift. But the king refused him the prize and in anger Poseidon afflicted the land with drought.
The god assaulted his sister Demeter in the shape of a horse as she was wandering the earth in search of her daughter Persephone. Poseidon seduced many nymphs and mortal woman often in the guise of an animal or flowing water. Some of his most famous conquests were the Gorgon Medousa (Medusa), Tyro, Amymone, and Aithra mother of the hero Theseus.
