Biography

Description

Poseidon is the god of the seas, earthquakes and horses, and although he is one of the twelve Olympians, he rarely leaves his underwater palace, just like his brother Hades.

Titanomachy

Poseidon is the son of the titans Cronus and Rhea, and like all his siblings, was eaten whole to prevent them from overthrowing their father. However, Poseidon's youngest brother, Zeus, was saved, and later tricked Cronus into vomiting up his siblings. Poseidon rallied with Zeus and his siblings, beginning the war against the titans called the Titanomahcy. The war lasted for ten years, but they succeeded in overthrowing the titans, throwing them into the deepest pits of Tartarus.

Poseidon, Zeus, and Hades drew lots to see who would rule each of Cronus' kingdoms, the sky, the seas, and the underworld. Zeus choice the sky, Poseidon was given the seas, and Hades was given the underworld. Poseidon was angered because Zeus claimed the heavens, seeing the handout of the seas as patronizing. His jealousy would lead him to clash with Zeus, and attempt to out due him in everything.
