Now that you know about the gods I will tell you a little bit about Ch 1 of Greek Myths. The first chapter is War Among the Gods. Well Cronus hears that someday one of his sons will overthrow him. So every time a son is born Cronus puts them jail.  Rhea, Cronus’s wife, tricks Cronus and doesn’t tell him that she had a son. She sends her son Zeus to a island. Zeus wants to overthrow Cronus and all other titans so he visits Atlas  and Prometheus. Atlas won’t help him though. Only Prometheus said “release the no name 50 headed 100 handed monster from the underworld. So Zeus did. Zeus, the monster, his brothers and sisters fought a long battle all the titans finally end up in chains the underworld.  The gods find the perfect place to live – Mount Olympus. The rest is for you to discover in Greek Myths.
