This trick bore Hercules, but not all of Zeus’s romantic trips were so clever. When he attempted to hide Io, Zeus simply covered the Earth with a cloud. Hera immediately noticed something was wrong, and when she came down to investigate, her husband turned his lover into a heifer.

Zeus also has two brothers, brothers Poseidon and Hades. After Zeus took over his father’s thrown the three brothers fought to determine which of the three would sit on the thrown. Zeus won the fights and became the ruler of the gods, as well as lord of the sky and rain. His weapon was the famous thunderbolt, which he hurled at those who displeased or made him mad, especially liars and oath breakers.

Consequently, according to the book of the Epic OF Gilgamesh and The Ark of Noah, the similarities between those two stories is more momentous than their differences. The major similarities in both stories is the cause of the flood.

Though Zeus knew his father was stronger than him,
As a result, Enkidu was created to stop Gilgamesh from his tyranny and make him humble. The gods did not themselves directly step in to discipline Gilgamesh, instead they used another creation, Enkidu. However, when Gilgamesh and his new friend and partner killed Humbaba and the bull of Heaven, the gods, without any creation as medium, intervened directly this time by killing one of them (Epic of Gilgamesh, 132). In “The Odyssey,” on the other hand, Homer portrayed the interactions between the gods and the mortals as being strictly direct. First, we saw this direct interaction between Athena, the goddess of wisdom and Odysseus’ son, Telemachus.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power tends to corrupt absolutely.” This is a quote from Lord Acton and is a perfect example of what happened to a young fourteen year old boy known as Heliogabalus or Elagabalus, who owned the title of Roman Emperor. To this day, Emperor Heliogabalus is known to be one of the most unusual characters to ever sit on the Roman throne. Emperor Heliogabalus abused his power by disrespecting the Roman Culture and doing whatever he wanted, which caused him to become hated by a large group of people who ultimately killed him.

Bathsheba and David soon conceived a second son, Solomon. The story doesn’t say if Bathsheba seduced David, then that would be a case of femme fatale, but for what I have read David is the one who fell in love with her at first sight and send for her. Not always women are the one to blame into mans misery, but man itself condemn themselves into a path of disgrace because they choose to sin.

But Bathsheba still gets blamed for David’s misery although she was just a women that did not intentionally try to get with David.
