How did Cronus kill his father?
Simply so, what did Cronus do to his father?
He ruled the cosmos during the Golden Age after castrating and deposing his father Ouranos (Uranus, Sky). In fear of a prophecy that he would in turn be overthrown by his own son, Kronos swallowed each of his children as they were born.
People also ask, how did Zeus kill his father?
The Titans were all children of Gaea and Uranus and the Gods are all children of Zeus and his brothers and sisters. Cronus used his weapon of choice which was the sickle, so he could kill his father, Uranus. Gaea made the sickle for Cronus so he could kill him and take over.
Cronus would gain by power by overthrowing his father and eventually lose it by being beaten by his son Zeus. Hesiod in his Theogony recorded this saga; Cronus envied the power of his father, the ruler of the universe.
