There was a prophecy that Kronos would be overthrown by his own son so whenever they had a child Kronos would swallow it up. He swallowed five of his offsprings but when Zeus was born in 700 BC Rhea hid him under a tree in a basket and instead presented a stone wrapped in a cloth to her husband which he instantly swallowed.

In Greek mythology, Zeus is the son of Cronos and Rhea. Cronos is regarded as the master of time. He came forward to assist Gaia in her revenge against her husband Uranus. He then married Rhea his sister. There was however a prophecy that said that one of Cronos' children would defeat him and usurp his power.

According when his first five children with Rhea were born including Poseidon, Demeter, Hades, Hera and Hestia he ate them up. However when Zeus the youngest was born Rhea handed Cronos a rock in a blanket instead of the child. Later Rhea took Zeus to Crete where he was raised by nymphs. Much later, in the battle between the Titans and the Olympians Zeus defeated Cronos.

Zeus is the king of gods and the god of thunder and sky. He is the ruler of Mount Olympus. His wife was Hera according to most sources. However according to the Oracle of Dodona he and Dione were the parents of Aphrodite. He is the father of Hercules.
