Prior to BattleEdit
Each of the male Titans joined with one of his sisters to produce children. Kronos married his sister Rhea, but was told by his parents that he would be defeated by his own son. To thwart this prophesy, he swallowed each of his and Rhea's children as they were born, including Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades, and Poseidon. Being immortal, they were unharmed, however, they remained trapped inside his body.
The Birth of ZeusEditRhea grieved for the loss of her children. So, when she was close to giving birth to Zeus, she consulted with her parents Gaia and Ouranos. They revealed the future to her, showing her how to thwart Kronos. First, Rhea went to the island of Crete to give birth to her son. When he was born, his infant cries were drowned out by the Kouretes, attendants of his mother, who clashed their weapons together. He was kept hidden in a cave and reputedly nursed by a goat. The horn of this goat may have been the famous horn of plenty
When Kronos came to Rhea for their child, Rhea gave him instead a stone, wrapped in cloths. Not noticing, he swallowed the stone instead.
The War BeginsEdit
What happened immediately after Kronos threw up his children is not clear, but the war between the gods and Titans, the Titanomachy, soon begins. Unfortunately the epic poem of that name, which would have told us much, is lost.Mount Olympus , and the Titans on Mount Othrys. These two mountains flank the area of northern Greece called Thessaly, Olympus to the north, and Othrys to the south.
Aftermath: The KrakenEdit
The Kraken, which wasn't a figure of actual greek mythology, was the last Titan. He developed supreme loyalty to his savior, Poseidon, who commanded the Kraken, according to Ray Harryhausen 's Class of the Titans .
