Cronus is the leader of the Titans in Greek mythology. The son of Gaia (Mother Earth) and Ouranos (Father Sky), he was the youngest of his brethren. At the urging of Gaia, Cronus castrated his father, Ouranos, with a scythe and overthrew him, ruling the cosmos as king during the so-called Golden Age. Cronus married his sister Rhea, and sired the first generation of the Olympian gods: Hestia, Demeter, [[Hera]], [[Hades]], [[Poseidon]], and [[Zeus]]. In fear of a prophecy that told of him being overthrown by his own children, Cronus swallowed each of them as soon they were born. Only the youngest, Zeus, managed to escape this fate and, after freeing his siblings, waged war against Cronus and the other Titans. During this Titanomachy, the Olympians emerged victorious, as Zeus took his father's scythe and cut him into pieces, casting his remains into Tartarus, the deepest part of the underworld. In some versions, Cronus was later freed by Zeus and became ruler of the Elysian Islands.

Cronus is the leader of the Titans in Greek mythology. The son of Gaia (Mother Earth) and Ouranos (Father Sky), he was the youngest of his brethren. At the urging of Gaia, Cronus castrated his father, Ouranos, with a scythe and overthrew him, ruling the cosmos as king during the so-called Golden Age. Cronus married his sister Rhea, and sired the first generation of the Olympian gods: Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades, Poseidon, and Zeus. In fear of a prophecy that told of him being overthrown by his own children, Cronus swallowed each of them as soon they were born. Only the youngest, Zeus, managed to escape this fate and, after freeing his siblings, waged war against Cronus and the other Titans. During this Titanomachy, the Olympians emerged victorious, as Zeus took his father's scythe and cut him into pieces, casting his remains into Tartarus, the deepest part of the underworld. In some versions, Cronus was later freed by Zeus and became ruler of the Elysian Islands.
