Chaos grew tired of living by himself. It was then that he first thought of creating the world. The first thing he did was to bring the goddess earth (also known as Gaea) into being. She was lovely beyond description; filled with strength and life, she grew and spread and enfolded huge expanses within her embrace. On her our world was founded.
Then Chaos creamed fearsome Tartarus and black Night, and straight after that the lovely and radiant Day. The kingdom of Tartarus was deep and dark beyond imagining as far with the earth as chaos was above it.
The goddess of Earth wished to begin with something beautiful, and so she gave birth to the goddess of Love who brought the beauty of life to the world. Then she bore the boundless blue Sky, and Mountain and the Seas.
One day, Uranus flew into a rage with his children, the Titans and the Hundred-handed giants. They had treated him with disrespect and so he decided to punish them severely. Earth, seeing his rage knelt before him and begged him to forgive them.
The titans bent their heads, and so did the Hundred-handed giants. The power of Uranus was fearsome, and a hundred times more so when he was enraged. Not all the Titans were afraid, however. The eyes of one of them lit up with joy. This was Cronus, who had always longed to be lord of the world himself. He knew his father had made no mistake in casting them to the Tartarus. But now, his turn had come.
With the help of his mother, Cronus escaped from his dark prison into the light bright world of day. Unused to the light, his eyes were so dazzled that they could see nothing of the shinning world which spread itself before them.
