Background:

Cronus:
He was the son of Uranus and Gaia. He was the first-generation Titan (him, brothers, and sisters). He was also brother to the Cyclopes and Hecatoncheries. He was the youngest. He married his sister, Rhea. He became King when he helped his mother and castrated his father and let his Cyclopes and Hectoncheries brother and sisters free. Soon after that, he became King and took his father’s place, and locked the Cyclopes and Hectoncheries back in the Underworld. Cronus consumed his children, all except for Zeus. Rhea gave Cronus a rock in swaddling cloth to be consumed instead of Zeus then ran to Crete to give birth to him, where he was raised safely. Soon after that Cronus puked up all the children he had consumed and they joined all the other god and goddesses that haven’t been consumed. Then the Titans started a war and this became the Titanomachy, the war lasted a very long time until Zeus freed his Cyclopes and Hectoncheries uncles. Then, the Titans were shackled and imprisoned. They honor Cronus at a harvest festival.
