Cronus

Greek - An early supreme god and fertility-god, the youngest Titan. Son of Uranus and Gaea. Husband of Rhea, his sister. Father of Demeter, Hades, Hera, Hestia, Poseidon, Zeus. Father of Chiron by Philyra, some say. Cronus was the youngest of the Titans and led the revolt of the Titans against the elder gods. He castrated his father Uranus and took over his throne. He was warned that one of his children would dethrone him so he swallowed each one as it was born. Rhea managed to save Zeus by giving Cronus a large pebble wrapped in baby clothes to swallow. He was forced to regurgitate the stone and the children, who were unharmed, when Zeus served him an emetic drink. He was killed by his son, Zeus, in the war between the Titans and the younger gods or, in another account, became the ruler of the Isles of the Blessed. He is sometimes depicted with three pairs of wings.
