The world began with a black bird called Nyx. Nyx had an egg with the wind.
One day, when life began to stir in the egg, Eros the goddess of love rose out
The egg spilt into two and created the sky (Uranus) and the land (Gaia). Eros made them fall in love.
Gaia and Uranus had children, and eventually grandchildren. One the the children was called Cronus. Cronus was told that his children would overpower him so he swallowed them
But his wife didn't like this so she came up with a plan. She gave him a rock swaddled in blankets and pretended it was her youngest child, Zeus. She took Zeus away.
When he was older, his mother ordered him to trick his father into giving up his siblings. He did, and he and his siblings fought against their father. They won. Zeus later created man and animals
