Cronus was the king of Titans and father of the first Olympian gods.

Cronus was the son of Uranus, the Greek god of the sky, and Gaia, the mother earth, and he is one of the Titans of Myth. He later overthrew his father by castrating him with a harpe blade, to become the king of the Greek pantheon.[1] Cronus later took Rhea as wife and fathered many children with her. Fearing to be dethroned however, he fed on them,[2] but Zeus, the only one not yet captured or devoured, freed his brothers and sisters, and together, with the help of Rhea, the Gods of Olympus defeated the mighty Titan and imprisoned him in the pits of Tartarus.[3]
