There are certainly other instances where Zeus is deceived (the incident with Prometheus being but one more good example). These examples only demonstrate that although he was the god who ruled Olympus and its divine denizens, he was subject to the laws of Fate and was not in fact all-powerful. And just as the other deities had their own personal foibles, Zeus too had a weakness - he was passionately fond of female charms. Many stories about Zeus recount his insatiable lust and notorious wandering eye, an eye that fell upon goddess and mortal woman alike.
Some of the paramours of Zeus are:
Alcmene | mother of Herakles
Danae | mother of Perseus
Europa | mother of Minos, Rhadamanthys, & Sarpedon
Io | mother of Epaphus
Leda | mother of Helen
Leto | mother of Apollo and Artemis
Maia | mother of Hermes
Metis | mother of Athena
Mnemosyne | mother of the Muses
Semele | mother of Dionysos
In Roman mythology, Zeus was identified with the god Jupiter.

I shall sing of Zeus, the best and the greatest of gods, far-seeing, mighty, fulfiller of designs who confides his tight-knit schemes to Themis as she sits leaning upon him.
