Throughout mythology, there are countless controversies that are seemingly unresolvable. Among the many controversies Zeus is involved in, one of the most controversial revolves around his love life.

He is recognized by the eagle, the oak tree, a royal sceptre, and the infamous thunder bolt.
Besides Zeus being the god of the sky and weather, he was the god of kingship and king of the gods. Zeus and Jupiter have things in common.

Before we start the tale of this hero, let me tell you a bit about the greek’s cultural beliefs. In Greek mythology, people believe in the gods of Olympus.

Gilgamesh, The Great King of Uruk as displayed a remarkable and gradual change in himself. Three events have impacted and changed Gilgamesh in a profound way: meeting Enkidu, his quest to kill Humbaba, and his desire to attain immortality. In the beginning of the epic it is said multiple times that “ quote about how Gilgamesh was a bad and unwanted king”. The people of Uruk could not do anything about it, since he is considered half god and the only people that can do something about him where that gods.

When the battle with Zeus happened every other god and goddess fled expect Athena there was a lot of damage done when the battle was over, which made the greeks believe that “Typhon is the deadliest god and monster that has ever existed in Greek mythology” (“Typhoeus; greekmythologycreatures”). Due to the fact that his cultural perspective is bad, the religious beliefs on him are not that good
