Deities of Greek Mythology; feminine, Titaness. The offspring of Uranus and Gaia, the sky and earth. Others are also labeled as Titans. They were beings of great power, but were eventually overthrown by the gods. Among them were Prometheus who provided humans with fire and medicine, Atlas, who held the heavens aloft on his shoulders, and Cronus and Rhea, the parents of many of the Olympian gods, including Zeus.
The Titans ruled the cosmos before the Olympians.
