god of the sea

Early Life

Poseidon's childhood was like no other. Poseidon's father, Kronos was afraid that one of his children was going to dethrone him so he swallowed them at birth. Some myths say that when Poseidon was born, his mother Rhea declared to her husband that she had given birth to a horse. Later Poseidon's younger brother Zues (who did not get swallowed) tricked Kronos into spitting up his other children, Poseidon, Hades, Hestia, Demeter and Hera.
