Titans (Greek mythology) Gods of Olympus


First generation
The first generation of Titans, children of Uranus and Gaea, consists of:

    
* Titans:
          
or ocean, the river circling the world.
          
or CEO, Titan of intelligence.
          
or I breed, the god of flocks and herds, Euribia husband (daughter of Pontus) and father of Pallas.
          
and Hyperion, the astral fire.
          
or Iapetus, husband and father Clymene Oceanid Prometheus, ancestor of the human race.
          
or Cronos, the youngest, who dethroned Uranus and became king of the gods.
    
* Earthen:
          
and Phoebe, the gold crown.
          
or Mnemosyne, the personification of memory and mother of the Muses by Zeus.
          
or Rhea, queen of the gods to Cronus.
          
and Themis, the embodiment of divine order, the laws and customs, and mother of the Hours and the Fates by Zeus.
          
and Thetis, the goddess of the sea.
          
or Tea, the goddess of sight.
Some authors also consider some of this generation to Dione, while others consider it a Oceanid.
Marriage between siblings was common in Greek mythology, and several earthen Titans and joined, spawning a second generation of Titans:

    
* Ocean and Tethys fathered Oceánides nymphs, rivers (oceans) and springs.
    
* Tea Hyperion and Helios (the sun), Selene (the moon) and Eos (the dawn).
    
* CEO and two daughters Phoebe, Lete and Asteria.
    
* Cronus and Rea formed the most important partner, as were the kings of the gods, and had six children:
          
or Hestia, goddess of the hearth.
          
or Hera, goddess of fidelity and marriage, queen of Olympus.
          
or Hades, god of the underworld.
          
or Demeter, goddess of agriculture.
          
or Poseidon, god of the oceans.
          
or Zeus, supreme god, king of the gods of Olympus.
