Cronus was a Titan. He overthrew his father (Uranus) by castrating him. Cronus then proceeded to swallow each of his children after they were born because of his fear that they would castrate and overthrow him as well. His wife gave birth to Zeus and instead of giving him to Cronus she gave Cronus… a rock. Zeus grew up and eventually deposed his father and the rest of the Titans with the help of the Olympians (his generation of gods and goddesses). Cronus was the king of the titans, and Zeus's father Kronus/Kronos/Cronos/Cronus. In Greek mythology was a Titan, son of Gaia the earth, and Ouranos/Uranus the sky.

I've not heard of Cronus disease. I don't believe there is such a disease. Perhaps you mean Crohn's disease which is an inflammatory disease of the digestive system. more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crohn's_disease
The father of Cronus was Uranus, the sky. The mother was Gaea, or Mother Earth.
Zeus never killed Cronus, instead he trapped him in Tarturus. As Cronus had once done to the 100 handed ones and Cyclopses.
Cronus's siblings were Rhea, Coeus, Phoebe, Oceanus, and Tethys. In other words, all the Titans but Gaia.
He was the god of time and the king of the gods until Zeus, his son, overthrew him and imprisioned him in Tartarus, the place of punishment in the Underworld.
Cronus was not a God, per se but was a Titan, born from the primordial deities, Gaia and Ouranos. He castrated and overthrew his father with his sickle, which led to his worship as a harvest god, associated with crops and nature.
Not to be confused with Chronos , (the greek god who was the personification of time), Cronus or Kronos was the head of the youngest of the first generation of Titans.

Kronos/Cronos isn't a titan of anything... in fact he isn't a titan. He is the father of Zeus.
Yes, Cronus had three brothers. Oceanus, Hyperion and Coeus. He also has two sisters. Rhea - who was also his wife- and Phoebe. All were titans and children of Gaea / Gaia and Uranus.

Cronus feared being overthrown by his offspring, hence he swallowed them at birth. However Zeus, his first born, was saved by his mother, and went on to overthrow him to become the Father of Gods and men.
After Zeus had grown up and given his father an emetic so that the six siblings were united and could overthrow Cronus. The events in the Greek myths did not happen in any particular year.
yes and was defeated by the gods (his children ) and was married to Hera
Cronus was god of time and the ages, especially time where regarded as destructive and all-devouring. He ruled the cosmos before Zeus (who is his son) then after the ten year war with the Olympians, he and the rest of his titans went into Tartaros, the stormy pit beneath the earth, below even the re…alm of Hades; many ages after, Zeus released Kronos and his brothers from this prison, and made the old Titan king of the Elysian Islands, home of the blessed dead.

I think he was either the Titan of Time or just the King Titan....don't know for sure though
The cult of Cronus could be found in ancient; Athens of Attica Olympia a sanctuary in Elis Lebadeia in Boiotia Gades, a Greek colony in Iberia
According to Greek mythology, the beginning of time was called Chaos. When Gaia (Mother Earth) and Uranus (Sky)(Heaven) were formed, the six titans came to be. Cronus married his sister Rhea then had six children as well: Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades, Poseidon and Zeus. When Cronus received a prophe…cy that one of his children would overthrow him, he tried to eat all of them. He succeeded with five of then but Rhea managed to save the sixth, Zeus, by giving him a Cronus a rock instead. She then left Zeus on the island of Crete to be raised by the goat Amaltheia. Zeus returned, defeated his father and saved his brothers and sisters. All the titans were sent to punished except for the few who took his side. Cronus was banished to Tartarus. Zeus married his sister, Hera, and the era of the Olympian gods began. (MORE)
Kronos carried around a scythe that weakens you on contact. Even he couldn't withstand the powers of his scythe, and Poseidon, Zeus, and Hades used it to cut him in little pieces then banished him to the deepest pits of Tartarus.
He was the king of the Titans and ruler of the skies until he was defeated by his son Zeus.
...because he ate his brothers and sisters and tried to eat him. his mother hid Zeus away and tricked chronus into eating a rock. so when Zeus was an adult he killed his father
Well long story short. Cronus (aka Saturn) was the ruler of the gods before Zeus, he overthrew his father Uranus (aka the planet Uranus, the original ruler) but was then overthrown by his son. He is the god of agriculture.
Do you mean Kronos, The titian lord of time In greek mythology? if you do then his wife is Rhea.
Cronus has defeeated by Zeus. Zeus was almost smallowed by him. He was hidden then tricked Cronus into eating a magic earb. He trough up the other children and joined zeuses side. Zeus developed power more powerful than Cronus and he ran away. Zeus took his place and became most powerful.
Cronus could control time itself, but he could not control tings in time. He could stop time, make it go backwards, or speed it up, and he could also stop a person by stopping "their" time, but he could not control everything.
because... just because. Don't question why when you know you know why, deep inside. peace out. stay a ponderer.
he murdered his father ate his children so they wont overthrow them was banished to the underworld and escaped to italy to rule as the roman god saturn
The name of the leader of the Titans, forebears of the Greek gods, is spelled Cronus or Kronos . This is a different figure than Chronos (also Khronos or Chronus ) who was the incorporeal Greek personification of time.
His friends were luke robinson, and tyler bennet. Luke Was an awesome person where tyler was very odd. Luke Tasted good
Cronus is important because he is a titan, and because of that,there's a big role. Cronus, besides being a titan, is also Zeus'sfather. however, he is important mainly because of the fact that heis the one that gave his father, sky, the vengeance that hismother, gala (Earth) felt that he needed. Whe…n he done this, he waslabeled a titan by sky along with the rest of his siblings,although they didn't join him in the act. they only knew of it. butfor Cronus, he became the king, and married his sister, Rhea. Rhea,however was somewhat unfortunate because each child she had, Cronuswould simply swallow it whole, leaving her to weep for her child.Gaia, eventually helped due to the fact that she felt sorrowful toher grandchildren getting swallowed by Cronus all the time. But thereason for why Cronus was doing this, is because he was advised byhis parents that one day a son would take over the throne. Soanyway, Gaia told Rhea to give birth in a secret place, and thenclothe a stone or rock in clothes so it would resemble a baby. Whenthat day came, Cronus demanded the baby and then Rhea simply gaveit to him, and in return, her child was hidden, to which was indeeda boy, and it was Zeus. Zeus was hidden from his father until hebecame a strong young man, and he rose up against Cronus. Cronuswould end up vomiting the stone up, letting go of all of hischildren to which rebelled against him as well. This, however, leadto a war. Titans against the new generation of gods. This would goon for ten years, until Zeus freed the Cyclops from Tatarus , andbecause of this, they were grateful, and they helped him and theothers fight. The titans obvoiusly lost and then zeus gained thethrone. no one after that would be able to beat zeus though. (MORE)
It was the form of the weapon which Gaia, the Earth his mother gaveto Cronus to castrate his father Uranus the Heavens. A sickle wasalso once used to harvest crops.
