Who are Athenas parents?

Technically, Athena's parents were Zeus (the king of the gods) and Metis (Titaness of wisdom and knowledge). It was prophesized that Metis's offspring would be more powerful than Zeus, so he swallowed Metis. However, since Metis was already pregnant with Athena, this did little good. Metis gave birth to Athena inside of Zeus, and Athena stayed there until Zeus, complaining of headaches, had his head split open by Hephaestus. Out sprung Athena, fully armed.
