Greek Mythology

Name: Uranus
Domain: The First Ruler of the Titans, The Sky God


Uranus is the son of Gaea. Uranus did not have a father, he was created by Gaea alone. Uranus and Gaea mated and produced the rest of the Titans. Uranus was the first ruler, and the sky god. His rule came to an end when Cronus castrated him. Cronus was encouraged to castrate Uranus by Gaea. It is unknown if Uranus died from his injury or if he simply withdrew from earth.

One account of Aphrodite's conception stated she emerged from the spot in the ocean where Uranus' flesh had fallen after the castration.
