Poseidon is given dominion over the seas by his brother, Zeus, after the three brothers overthrow the Titans to become the supreme rulers of the cosmos. The Titans were the reigning deities of the world during the generation of Poseidon’s father, but after Poseidon, Zeus, and Hades defeated the Titans, the brothers established themselves as the Olympians.
Mount Olympus was the historic home of the 12 Olympians, the major gods and goddesses of Ancient Greece, Poseidon was given dominion over the seas and was famously ill-tempered. In fact, it is said that whenever the seas were rough and hurricanes churned up, it was a direct reflection of the mood of Poseidon himself.
