Cronos

964 0 0 0 15 20c0 cronos. 984 0 0 0 19 8c2. The murderer of Gaia enters my tomb? Titans who were born to Gaia and Ouranos.

He fathered the first of the Olympians with his wife Rhea. In Greek mythology, Cronos was the last of Gaia and Ouranos’ children and was the Emperor of the Titans. After defeating Ouranos, Cronos reimprisoned the Hecatonchires and the Cyclops along with the Gigantes and set the dragon Campe to guard them forever. He and his sister-wife, Rhea, took the throne of the world as Emperor and Empress, respectively. Cronos learned from the Sisters of Fate that he was destined to be overcome by his own son, just as he had overthrown his father. Cronos was usually depicted with a sickle, which is used to harvest crops and also the weapon used to defeat Ouranos. Other children he is reputed to have fathered was Chiron, by Philyra.

His counterpart in Roman Mythology is Saturn and his Canaanite counterpart is El II. In the beginning, the mighty Titans were sired by the union of Ouranos and Gaia. They were all born on the Island of Creation, home to the Sisters of Fate. Above any other beings, including the Titans, the Sisters of Fate could see the future and predict what would happen to any living being. Cronos, the mighty ruler of the Titans, was prophesized to be overthrown by his own children in the future.

To prevent this from coming true, Cronos tried to bribe the Sisters of Fate into changing his destiny by granting them the Steeds of Time. However, this gift would not prevent the prophecy from coming true. The mighty Titan Atlas was the military leader of the Titans in their epic battle against the Gods. Mountains were hurled like pebbles and tremendous earthquakes shook the world. Cronos had almost been defeated by having his soul taken by his son Hades, but was saved by Atlas, who was defeated by Hades and Poseidon.
