Myth

Early History

Metis was born to Oceanos and Tethys. She was the first wife of Zeus, as he needed her good advice. She helped him during the Titanomachy, coming up with various plans for him.

After the War

Zeus had heard from The Oracle of Delphi that Metis would bear a son whom would overtake him once he grows. Zeus could not let this happen. He told her to play a game of changing shapes, and she, forgetting her prudence, accepted. She changed into many animals, but as soon as she turned into a fly, Zeus opened his mouth and ate her.

A child

Months later, Zeus was getting head splitting headaches. The Olympians tried to find out what was happening, but there was no use. Suddenly, his head split open and out came Athena fully armored.
