  • “You murder me now and steal my throne—but one of your own sons will dethrone you, for crime begets crime.” Uranus said
  • Kronos eating his children like Hestia, Demeter, and Hera; then two sons—Hades and Poseidon. One by one, he swallowed them all.
  • One night Rhea and Zeus prepared a special drink. They mixed mustard and salt with the nectar. Next morning, after a mighty swallow, Cronos vomited up first a stone, and then Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades, and Poseidon—who, being gods, were still undigested, still alive. They thanked Zeus and immediately chose him to be their leader.
