Freebase

  1. Titan

    In Greek mythology, the Titans were a primeval race of powerful deities, descendants of Gaia and Uranus, that ruled during the legendary Golden Age. They were immortal beings of incredible strength and stamina and were also the first pantheon of Greek gods and goddesses. In the first generation of twelve Titans, the males were Oceanus, Hyperion, Coeus, Cronus, Crius, and Iapetus and the females - the Titanesses - were Mnemosyne, Tethys, Theia, Phoebe, Rhea and Themis. The second generation of Titans consisted of Hyperion's children Eos, Helios, and Selene; Coeus's daughters Leto and Asteria; Iapetus's children Atlas, Prometheus, Epimetheus, and Menoetius; Oceanus' daughter Metis; and Crius's sons Astraeus, Pallas, and Perses. The Titans were overthrown by a race of younger gods, the Olympians, in the Titanomachy. This represented a mythological paradigm shift that the Greeks may have borrowed from the Ancient Near East.
