Rhea and Cronus

When Rhea and Cronus had married, it looked like a bliss at first but they eventually broke up. And for a good reason, a prophet warned him that his kids would overthrow him eventually. So Cronus decided to eat his children.

When Rhea had her sixth child called Zeus, she had a trick up her sleeve with the help of her mom Gaea. She wrapped up a rock with a blanket and gave it to Cronus and he ate the rock. And she hid Zeus in a cave in Crete.

Meanwhile, at the cave Zeus who was looked after by nymphs and a nanny that is a goat named Amaltheia. And Gaea made little soldiers called curetes bang their swords and shields to drown out the sound when Zeus cried or fussed.

Zeus was ready to leave the cave to seek revenge on Cronus. ,And did that by poisoning Cronus. And he was poisoned so much that he threw up his children. And Cronus’s reign as the leader of the universe was in danger.
