In Mythology Edit

Gaia was the prime opponent of the heavenly gods. First she rebelled against Ouranus, then she assisted Zeus in overthrowing Cronus. Finally she was angry with Zeus, for putting the her Titan sons into Tartarus, producing the tribe of Giants and Typheous to try and destroy and dethrone him, but both failed.
