Romans loved to tell stories about the magical family who ruled the
heavens. The Romans truly believed that their gods could interfere in
their lives, to help or hinder them.
to ancient Roman myth, Jupiter was the king of all the gods. Jupiter
had two brothers and three sisters. When Saturn, their father, died,
the boys - Jupiter, Neptune,
divided the world up between themselves. Jupiter took all of the
heavens, Neptune took the sea, and Pluto took the underworld. Each
was quite content with their selection.
