Cronus the God of Fate
Father of Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon
Cronus was the ruling Titan who came to power by castrating his father Uranus. His wife was Rhea, and their offspring were the first of the Olympians. To ensure their safety Cronus ate each of the children as they were born. Rhea grew sick of this and tricked Cronus into eating a rock instead of eating their child Zeus. When Zeus grew up he revolted against Cronus and the other Titans and defeated them and banished them to Tartarus in the underworld. In astronomy, the planet we now call Saturn because of Roman influence was called cronus by the Greeks. It was the outermost planet god/deity, and was considered the seventh of the seven heavenly objects that are visible with the naked eye. Given that it had the longest observable repeatable period in the sky, which is currently around 30 years, it was thought to be the keeper of time, or Father Time, since no other objects had been seen or recorded to have a longer period. That is why it is often depicted as an elderly man with a long gray beard.
