Aeolos was a calm god but at the same time the most powerful of all Winds.
Aeolos was chosen by Zeus, the king of the gods, to be also the ruler of the winds. Aeolos had the power to both calm the winds and send them out. Many times he used his authority and powers to lock the winds in a cave to bring peace to the earth.
Aeolos lived peacefully with his wife, six daughters, and six sons in a magnificent palace in Aeolia, which is now known as "Stromboli" in Italy.
Nevertheless, the name "Aeolos" is a common name in Greece. Widely used, for example, is the expression "the bag/bags of Aeolos were opened" to refer to actions with consequences.
