Zeus' Affairs

An interactive visuel representation of all of Zeus' affairs. It's amazing how the chart lays down every detail and every offspring. Hercules is second to last 'affair' on the circular ligne. I added the red arrow to indicate where Zeus is. Zeus was father to both Perseus and Hercules but Perseus came first. And Hercules' grandfathers are sons of Perseus, which this chart doesn't show. It's pretty twisted when you think about it : Alcmene was the mother of Hercules (with Zeus the father) and Perseus was Alcmene's great-great-great-grandfather, which makes Zeus her great-great-great-greatgrandfather or something like that (see Perseus' offsprings below). It's missing all these juicy details but it's still cool.
