Even with his father disposed, Kronos could not forget his ominous last words, foretelling that he would also be overthrown. His mind ravaged by unease, he consumes his offspring, one after another. Such irrational brutality seemed to be hereditary.
See Kronos the Unjust.
Cronus or both Cronos and Kronos was in Greek mythology the leader and the youngest of the first generation of Titans, the divine descendants of Uranus, the sky and Gaia, the earth. Cronus was usually depicted with the harpe and a sickle. His sister Rhea (known as "the mother of gods") is also his wife, they had six children: Hestia, Hades, Demeter, Poseidon, Hera, and Zeus. He swallowed his children as soon as they were born, exept Zeus, who was hidden and replaced by a rock. He overthrew his father and ruled during the mythological Golden Age, until he was overthrown by his own son Zeus and imprisoned in Tartarus.
