Titans vs Olympians
For ten years, the Titans and the Olympians fought. Gaia advised Zeus to free the Cyclopes and the hundred headed Giants from Tartarus and persuade them to join his side. Zeus went down to Tartarus, killed the monster which guarded the prisoners, and released them.The Cyclopes and the Giants became allies with Zeus making the olympians stronger.
The Cyclopes gave Zeus the power over thunder and lightning. Then gave the helm of darkness to Hades and to Poseidon they gave a trident. Hades used the helm of darkness to steal away Cronus’ weapons and Poseidon came at him with the trident. The distraction allowed Zeus to strike with lightning, and he downed Cronus. With the defeat of Cronus, the Olympians were able to defeat the Titans. The Titans who participated in the war, were imprisoned in Tartarus. Atlas was given a special punishment for his role in the war. He was required to hold up the sky.
