Before the titans, gods, and goddesses, there was Chaos… Chaos: “gap, gaping void, chasm, abyss”
From Chaos was born Gaia, or “Earth” Now, because Gaia was alone and wanted a partner, she brought forth Uranus, or “Sky”
When Gaia and Uranus came together, Gaia gave birth to some pretty interesting creatures… Including: Cyclops Titans Giants Hecatonchires
Two of the Titans were brother and sister,Cronus and Rhea Cronus was the most powerful of the Titans, and is often called “Lord of the Universe” Rhea was much gentler, and is often called “Mother Earth”
Brace yourselves for a some incest… (which is awkwardly quite common in Greek Mythology)
Cronus and Rhea have a little get together and Rhea gives birth to… Hestia Hades Poseidon Hera Zeus Demeter
After Rhea gives birth to the gods and goddesses, a prophesy comes that Cronus will be overthrown by one of his own children… So he decides to swallow each of them.
When Zeus grows older and stronger, Rhea and Zeus come up with a plan to save the other gods and goddesses. They create a magic potion…
Rhea tricks Cronus into drinking the potion… …which makes him throw up Poseidon, Hades, Hera, Hestia, and Demeter. Alive and whole!
…leaving Zeus and his brothers and sisters to rule over the world on Mount Olympus.
