Kronos Picture

KRONOS is the son of Ouranos and Gaea, the youngest of the Titans. He overthrew his father, with the help of his mother, and became the supreme ruler of the universe. Kronos was the Titan god of time and the ages, especially time where regarded as destructive and all-devouring. He ruled the cosmos during the so-called Golden Age. Kronos then married Rhea, his sister, who gave birth to the great Gods. In fear of a prophecy that he would be in turn be overthrown by his own son, Kronos swallowed each of his children as soon as they were born. Rhea managed to save the youngest, Zeus, by hiding him away on the island of Krete, and fed Kronos a stone wrapped in the swaddling clothes of an infant. The god grew up, forced Kronos to disgorge his swallowed offspring, and led the Olympians in a ten year war against the Titanes, before driving them defeated into the pit of Tartaros.
