The Titanomachy poses a special part in Greek mythology. It all started when Cronus refused to restore justice after the dethronement of his father. The Titans who fought were navigated by Kronos and the members were: Kios, Aries, Hyperion, Iapetus, Atlas. On the other side, Zeus was the leader of the Olympians and their side consisted of: Hestia, Dimitra, Helios, Hera, Hades ,Poseidon, Hecatonchires, Gigantes and Cyclopes .

 The war lasted about 10 years and the Olympians won it. Then, the Olympian Gods shared the plunder and Zeus took charge of the Αir and the Sky, Poseidon took charge of the Sea and Hades took  charge of the Underworld. The Earth was let as a common plunder for all. After that, Zeus threw Cronus and his allies in Tartarus apart from Oceanus and Titanides who remained neutral during the war. Zeus also released all Hecatonchires except for Atlantas.
