Cronus was one of six boys of Uranus and Gaea. Cronus was the only one prepared to choose up the adamant sickle and castrate him when it came to dismissing his daddy. Sounds pretty individual, doesnt it?

Fast-forward to the next generation of goddesses: Cronuss daughters– Hera, Demeter, and Hestia– didnt sit by idly. They united with Zeus and fought Cronus and his allies in a ten-year war that earned them the honored title of Olympians.
Gaea and Uranus had six children– Tethys, Theia, Phoebe, Themis, and Mnemosyne. When their siblings held down Uranus so Cronus could spay him, they should have had a viewpoint about it.
When Cronus took up the sickle to castrate their daddy, he had assistance. His bros Iapetus, Coeus, Crius, and Hyperion pinned down dear ol dad while Cronus swung the blade. For this, Cronus cast him out.
Bad dad. Cronus was the worst.
Those smart, imaginative Greeks often had more than one variation of the tales about their gods. Drops fell upon the sea and turned into foam, and Aphrodite occurred from the foamy water as a totally formed female. A less remarkable variation tells that Aphrodite was the daughter of Zeus and Dione.
Altheas world is ruled by Cronus, the God of Gods, whose inheritance is the world and females, his toys. Following the vision that has been exposed to her by the Fates– that she will squash the Almighty and free the world from his fear– Althea takes a trip to the southern isle of Crete, where ladies who seek haven from Cronus live hidden among the exalted Boy God. The Boy God, Zeus, the only kid of Cronus, is believed by most of the world to be dead. Cronus did no such thing, so Gaea waited up until Rhea was pregnant with Zeus and then helped her stash away the newborn on the island of Crete. Whatever the factor, Oceanus stood up to Cronus first, long before Zeus was a twinkle in his mothers eye.
Possibly Oceanus knew Cronus would be a terrible leader. Whatever the factor, Oceanus stood up to Cronus first, long prior to Zeus was a twinkle in his mothers eye.

Its … made complex.
Zeus was known for his wandering eye. His first spouse, Metis, Goddess of Wisdom, didnt have to tolerate it for long, but just since Zeus swallowed her. (Talk about an unhealthy marital relationship.) Metis was pregnant when he consumed her, and while inside of him, she brought to life their daughter, Athena, who then hatched from his head. Of course, the oh-so-humble Zeus took complete credit for birthing one of the fiercest warriors of all time.
After her mom is drawn from her and passes away as a result of Cronuss cruelty, Althea is determined not to suffer the same fate as numerous females prior to her. To honor the passing away wish of her mother, Althea promises to look after her sis no matter the expense.
The Titanesses kicked ass too.
Following the vision that has been revealed to her by the Fates– that she will squash the Almighty and totally free the world from his horror– Althea takes a trip to the southern isle of Crete, where females who seek refuge from Cronus live surprise amongst the exalted Boy God. The Boy God, Zeus, the only boy of Cronus, is believed by the majority of the world to be dead. But he is quite alive and his fate is tied with Althea, for the Fates foretold that he too will destroy his daddy.
As Althea and the Boy God train and gain support for their fated journey, Cronus learns of the rebellion and starts collecting his own army to stop any resistance. Cronus may be The Almighty, however Althea will not fail her mom, sisters, or the imprisoned women defenseless against the harsh god..
Altheas world is ruled by Cronus, the God of Gods, whose inheritance is the world and women, his playthings. He takes mortal females as prizes and discards them when hes through. No lady attempts to defy him.
Cronus was a larger sack of shit.
The Titanesses deserve their time in the spotlight. In Wings of Fury, these goddesses lastly get their minute.
After Cronus took over the throne, he was paranoid that a person of his children may do the very same to him, so each time his accompaniment, Rhea, had a child he swallowed their infants. He feasted on Hestia, Demeter, Poseidon, Hades, and Hera. However when it came to their youngest, Zeus, Cronuss mother had other strategies. Not only was Cronus paranoid and power-hungry, he was a liar. Gaea had provided him the sickle to take down Uranus, and in return, Cronus was expected to release her locked up kids– the hundred-handed beasts and the Cyclopes– from the underworld. Cronus did no such thing, so Gaea waited until Rhea was pregnant with Zeus and then helped her stash away the newborn on the island of Crete. Rhea offered Cronus a stone to swallow rather. Obviously, Cronus was more brawn than brains, since he was none the smarter, till Metis (keep in mind Zeuss first other half?) tricked him into consuming an herb that forced him to throw up his children.

Greek Mythology has lots of clashing stories. To compose Wings of Fury, I had to investigate them all, select one version to bet on, and then be prepared to support my choice. Some could say this mythology is as made complex as the gods for which its about, and they would be.
Meanwhile, Zeus was talking to Leto, Goddess of Motherhood, who later birthed twins, Artemis and Apollo. Hera, Zeuss 2nd better half, refused his marriage proposal, however he would not take no for an answer, so he deceived her and seduced her into marriage. Hera became referred to as the Goddess of Marriage. Sad, isnt it? Hera was forced into wedlock and then acquired the track record as a jealous queen who had several fits of temper, normally concerning her sleezy spouse. Im not going to delve into Zeuss numerous indiscretions. All Ill state is this: Zeus was consistent.
