written by the ancient Greek poet Hesiod

Cronus beats Uranus and takes the power from him.
He marries Rhea.
They make a family together.

But Cronus swallows all his children not to lose his power.

Rhea hides her youngest child, Zeus, in Crete.
When Zeus grows up,
he gives a potion to Cronus.
Cronus drinks it and spews out all his other children.
They beat Cronus and they take the power from him.
In the end, Zeus becomes the king of all the gods.
