Myth Storyboard on Cronus and Zeus
This storyboard does not have a description.
Before Zeus was born, his father Cronus intended to swallow him as he did with all his other children because he was afraid that his children might overthrow him one day.
Rhea did not want Cronus to swallow Zeus so she hid him in a cave on Mount Dicte in Crete.
Rhea wrapped a rock in baby clothes and tricked Cronus into swallowing a rock instead of Zeus.
Zeus grew up and caused Cronus to vomit up his brothers and sisters (Poseidon, Hades, Hestia, Demeter, and Hera) by giving him a potion he and his mother Rhea made.
There was a battle between the Titans and Olympians. The Titans won and Olympians lost. Zeus imprisoned them in the underworld of Tartarus.
After the battle, Zeus and his brothers divided up creation. Hades got the underworld, Poseidon got the sea, and Zeus got the sky and became ruler of the olympian gods.
