They were always quarreling. He angered her by his infidelities; she enraged him with her suspicions. She was the queen of intriguers and always found it easy to outwit Zeus, who was busy with many things. Once she persuaded the other gods into a plot against him. She drugged his drink; they surrounded him as he slept and bound him with rawhide thongs. He raged and roared and swore to destroy them, but they had stolen his thunderbolt, and he could not break the thongs. But his faithful cousin, the Hundred-handed Briareus, who had helped him against the Titans, was working as his gardener.

Zeus was king of the gods, lord of the sky. His sister Demeter was the earth-goddess, lady of growing things.

His sister Hera, queen of the gods, was also his wife. His brother Poseidon was god of the sea. His other brother, Hades, ruled a dark domain, the underworld, the land beyond death. The other gods in the Pantheon were Zeus''s children; three of them were also Hera''s.

The rest of Zeus''s children were born out of wedlock. Three of them entered the Pantheon. The first was Athene, and the story of how she was born is told in the next chapter.

Athene Zeus was strolling on Olympus one morning and noticed a new maiden walking in his garden. She was Metis, a Titaness, daughter of one of his old enemies. But the war was long ago, and she was beautiful. He charged down the slope after her. She turned into a hawk and flew away.
