Cronus is a figure from Greek mythology. He is the youngest of the Titans, son of Ouranos and Gaia. Kronos’ father, Ouranos, who was jealous of all his sons, threw them back into the depths of the earth (Tartaros). Kronos’ mother Gaia wanted revenge and urged Kronos to castrate his father, which Kronos did with a sickle. He then became ruler in place of his father. He married his sister Rhea, but he didn’t want any of the children from this marriage alive since his parents had predicted that one of those children would take his rule away. As soon as the children were born, he devoured them with skin and hair.
