Family Trees and Ancient Arguments

In the early days of the world, there was only Chaos. Chaos became lonely and made Gaea, the earth. Then Gaea became lonely, so Chaos made Uranus, the sky. Gaea and Uranus married and had twelve kids, Oceanus, Hyperion, Kronos, Tethys, Theia, Rhea, Themis, Iapetus, Mnemosyne, Phoebe, Krios, and Koios. They where called the Titans.

Then Gaea and Uranus started to argue.Gaea tricked Uranus to come down to earth,then told Krios, Hyperion, Koios, and Iapetus to hold him down while Kronos cut Uranus to pieces and cast him into Tartarus.Gaea and Tartarus married and had a couple of kids.Shortly after that, Kronos and Rhea married and had six children, Hestia, Hera, Zeus, Demeter, Hades, and Poseidon.

Kronos, fearing one of his kids would overthrow him, swallowed them whole when they were born.But Rhea hid baby Zeus and gave Kronos a rock to eat instead. Zeus grew up and tricked Kronos into throwing up his siblings. Soon, they overcame the Titans, and the rule of the gods began.
