Also question is, why did Rhea hide Zeus from Cronus?
Rhea concealed the birth of Zeus in a cave on Mount Dicte in Crete and gave Cronus a stone wrapped in swaddling clothes. This he swallowed in the belief that it was Zeus. Subsequently Cronus was vanquished by Zeus and was forced to disgorge the swallowed children.
Furthermore, what did Zeus do to his mother? Zeus' father was Cronus and his mother Rhea. Cronus had usurped control of the heavens from his father Ouranos and he was constantly wary of not having the same thing happen to him from his own children. To pre-empt any takeover he, therefore, swallowed all of his children: Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades, and Poseidon.
Furthermore, what happened to Rhea after Zeus defeated Cronus?
Rhea was married to Kronos (also spelled Cronus) who feared that his own child would replace him as King of the Gods, just as he had done with his own father Ouranos. So when Rhea gave birth, he gobbled up the children. They did not die but remained trapped in his body.
What is Rhea's power?
RHEIA (Rhea) was the Titanis (Titaness) mother of the gods, and goddess of female fertility, motherhood, and generation.
