The mighty Titans were a powerful race that ruled the world before Olympians, in a time of the Golden Age of men. They were immortal giants of incredible strength and knowledge of old religion rituals and magic. They are also known as the Elder Gods and their dwelling place was at Mount Othrys . In Greek culture they were interpreted as personifications of the earth ( Gaea ) and the sky or heavens ( Uranus ).
The first generation of Titans were descendants of Gaea and Uranus who originally gave birth to Twelve Titans , six males and six females. Males were Coeus, Cronus, Crius, Hyperion, Iapetus and Oceanus while females were Mnemosyne, Phoebe, Rhea, Theia, Themis, Tethys. Some brothers and sisters consorted with each other while others consorted with sons and daughters of their relatives and gave birth to the second generation of Titans. Hyperion and Theia gave birth to Eos, Helios and Selene , while Coeus and Phoebe gave birth to Leto and Asteria . Oceanus and Tethys gave birth to Oceanids and Potamoi who are in general not referred as Titans. However, an Oceanid Clymene , a daughter of Oceanus and Tethys, helped Iapetus to continue the next generation and bore him Atlas, Prometheus, Epimetheus and Menoetius. Crius and his half-sister Eurybia , a daughter of Gaea and Pontus , gave birth to Astraeus , Pallas and Perses . And finally, in later ages Cronus and Rhea gave birth to younger gods, Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, Hera, Hestia and Demeter who rebelled against Cronus and his followers. They called themselves the Olympian Gods, after Mount Olympus which was their main dwelling place.
