In Greek mythology, the Titans (Greek Τιτάν, plural Τιτάνες) were a race of powerful deities that ruled during the legendary Golden Age.
The twelve first-generation Titans were led by the youngest, Cronus, who overthrew their father, Uranus ("Heaven"), at the urgings of their mother, Gaia ("Earth").
