Why is the God of Sea Poseidon Popular by People?
The Introduction of Poseidon and Neptune:
Poseidon was the name given to the Roman god of sea and Neptune by the Greek. He is the brother of Jupiter (Zeus) and Pluto (Pluto). After the defeat of their father Saturn (Kronos), the three brothers divided the world into three parts, ruled by one of the three brothers. Jupiter soared into the sky, Neptune stormed into the sea, and Pluto stormed into the underworld. Neptune has a reputation for being grumpy. The storm and earthquake reflected his anger. He is pictured as a bearded trident sitting in a shell under the sea horse.
The Story Between Neptune and the Water Nymph:
Amphitrite is also a woman who is said to be Neptune’s wife. She is the woman most often considered to be his wife rather than Salacia. According to a story about this relationship, Neptune saw the narcissus Amphitrite dancing on the island of Naxos. He was fascinated by her beauty and immediately fell in love and asked her to marry him. She rejected him.
Don’t be intimidated, Neptune sends one of his servants, a dolphin, to try to find her again. The clever and charming dolphin can convince Amphitrite to change her mind and agree to marry Neptune. To reward the dolphin for what he did, he turned the creature into an immortal fairy, and honored him in the dolphin heaven. This is why dolphins sometimes appear in Neptune’s description.
