Hesiod
Theogony
“Monstrous Gaia was groaning withincongested. She conceived a cunning, evil trick.4
Quickly she made the element of grey adamant and
fashioned a great sickle and showed it to her children.
Then she spoke, encouraging them, though sorrowing in her heart.
‘My children with a reckless father, if only you agree
to obey me. We would avenge the evil outrage of this father
of yours, for he first devised unseemly deeds.’”(Quotation)

“However they were sometimes represented assuming anthroporphic shape, albeit ones that were indivisible from their native element. Gaia the earth, for example, might manifest herself as a matronly woman half-risen from the ground ; and Thalassa the sea might lift her head above the waves in the shape of a sea-formed woman.”(quotation)

Before the Olympians, there were other godly deities known as the titans-the gigantic gods who ruled the golden age. The king of these deities was named Kronos(Cronus). had once defeated his father Uranos(Uranus) and was more cautious towards any of his offspring because he believed they would, in turn, defeat him. So every time his ruling wife, Rhea(Calliope) would have a child, Kronos saw it fit to swallow them! Rhea was smart however and tricked Kronos into eating a rock instead of their sixth child when he was born. This child was taken to the lad of Crete where he grew and learned about his horrible father. This child was planning on avenging his swallowed sibling and defeating his father once and for all. This child was known as the almighty Zeus. King of the Olympians and god of the Sky and Prophet.(summary)
