Also known as Rheia
Mother of the Gods
Married to her brother Cronus, she gave birth to Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Demeter, Hera and Hestia.
These didn’t have much time to get acquainted with the world before Cronus swallowed them in a male menopausal panic. But Rhea tricked him by hiding Zeus and substituting a stone wrapped in baby clothes.
So Cronus swallowed that instead, not realizing that a fully-grown Zeus would return to rescue his siblings.
