Myth

Early History

Rhea was born to Gaia and Ouranos. She, along with her titan siblings, lived in a cave when they were young. Gaia offered a sickle made of flint to them to kill Ouranos. All but Kronos cowered in fear. When Kronos defeated their father, he took Rhea as a wife.

Titanomachy

Rhea had six children. Kronos ate five because Gaea said that his son would overtake him. Rhea hid baby Zeus in a cave in Crete to be raised by nymphs. When he grew old enough, he gave Rhea a mixture of mustard, wine, and a herb that would make Kronus throw up her children. He did so, and the war was started. After ten years, Zeus ended it by slicing Kronos into millions of pieces and threw him to Tartarus. Rhea went with him, because he was her husband.

Gigantomachy

Rhea took part in the Gigantomachy defeating the Gigantes. The precise amount of involvement is unknown though she does appear on the Pergamon Altar riding a lion armed with a bow and arrow.
