Gaea and Uranus

When earth was not formed it was called chaos and it was a place of nothingness until Gaea emerged and looked up and there was Uranus and they were instantly smitten and Uranus made it rain down And soon it exploded with valleys, trees , plants, and mountains.

Gaea and Uranus had several children their first six kids had 50 heads and 100 arms(or called Hecatoncheires) the second trio had a pair of cyclopes. Uranus said that the were ugly and did not believe they should live on beautiful earth so he threw them all in Tartarus.

Gaea had six more children. Gaea’s relationship with Uranus was forever spoiled. she had a second batch of sons and from the second batch of sons Gaea asked Cronus when he was old enough to attack Uranus with an unbreakable sickle and Cronus did what he was told and Uranus retreated and Cronus was the new lord of the universe.
