Cronus after hearing a prophecy he became fearful that one of his
children would over throw him. So one by one he swallowed them to
prevent such a thing happening. When Rhea had her final child, Zeus,
instead of allowing Cronus to eat him, she fed him a stone wrapped in
swaddling cloth.
Thinking nothing of it, Cronus scarfed it down unaware of the switch. When Zeus had grown he over threw his father and
freed his siblings.
