In Greek mythology, the Titanomachy, or War of the Titans (Τιτανομαχία), was the eleven-year series of battles fought between the two races of deities long before the existence of mankind: the Titans, fighting from Mount Othrys, and the Olympians, who would come to reign on Mount Olympus.
These Greek myths of the Titanomachy fall into a class of similar myths throughout Europe and the Near East, where one generation or group of gods by and large opposes the dominant one.
Sometimes the rebels lose, and are either cast out of power entirely or incorporated into the pantheon.
