2: When Cronos murdered his father Uranus, that’s when he became father of the gods. Uranus gave Cronos a prophesy, “You murder me now and steal my throne—but one of your own sons will dethrone you, for crime begets crime.” He managed to get by with this prophesy because as his children were born he would swallow them. | Rhea, his wife, foiled his plan by have another son Zeus. Rhea hid Zeus with a shepherd family, until he was old enough to be brought back to the court of gods as the newest cupbearer. Cronos never recognized him. Zeus and his mother, plotting against Cronos, created a potion for him to drink. After he drank, he threw up all of his children that he had swallowed; and because gods cannot be digested they were still alive. Zeus and the rest of the children fought Cronos and made Cronos and all of his army flee. Fulfilling the prophesy, Zeus became king of the gods.
