RheaThis is a featured page

Rhea was the mother of the gods of Olympus. Ironically it seems that the same story follows the next generation as the previous one. Cronus became very jealous of his children (as did his father), and so made Rhea give him each one to swallow as soon as they were born. Rhea (same as Gaea) was not happy with this, and managed to sneak the god Zeus away after his birth. She managed to fool Cronus by wrapping a rock in a blanket and giving it to him to swallow. Zeus went to grow up and later came back to overthrow his father and become ruler (ironically like his father before him).Pronunciation:Ree ahOrigins:An orgiastic Cretan GoddessFather: UranusMother: GeaeHusband: CronusChildren: Demeter, Hades, Hera, Hestia, Poseidon, ZeusOther Names:Cybele, Magna Mater, Ops, AgdistisCult Center:Crete
