The Titans are a group of deities in Greek mythology. They were the children of Uranus and Gaia, with the first generation having six sons and six daughters, who were all considered to be giants. The second generation consisted only of four male Titans. These 12 Titans ruled over the world before being overthrown by their younger brothers (the Olympians). In this post, we’ll explore some interesting comparisons between ancient titans and other gods from various mythologies.
Enceladus, a Greek Titan of war, has been compared to the Chinese god Sun Wukong.
Sun Wukong is a monkey god who is known for his strength, intelligence and magical powers. He was born under the name of Zhu Bajie and was later renamed “Sun Wukong” when he became an immortal. His Chinese name literally translates to “monkey who became enlightened by eating the fruit of a gourd (Literal translation).”
Enceladus is also known for his magical powers that make him immortal and give him superhuman strength. As a Greek Titan of war, he overthrew most other Titans in order to become King of Mount Etna where he would rule over Sicily until Zeus killed him with an arrow made from seashells fired at point-blank range.
Tethys is the Titan of fresh water, and in some stories, is the mother of all rivers. She is often compared with the Buddhist goddess Tara.

Themis is the goddess of divine law and order. She is often compared to the goddess Skadi from Norse mythology.
Themis was the goddess of divine law and order. She was the Titaness who gave birth to the Moirai (the Fates) and the Horae (the Hours). Themis had a very similar role in Greek mythology as Skadi in Norse mythology. Both were deities associated with justice, fairness, and law enforcement.
In addition to being a goddess of justice and fairness, Themis was also associated with oaths, contracts, marriage contracts or bonds between people or groups of people such as those formed by treaties between nations or agreements made between employers and employees.

Rhea Silvia, who is often considered a Roman goddess and also sometimes a nymph, was also a Titan, specifically mother to Romulus and Remus.
The goddess Rhea Silvia is often considered a Roman goddess and sometimes even a nymph, but she was also a Titan. She was the daughter of the king of Alba Longa, who ruled over it during its time as an independent kingdom. The city later became part of Rome before eventually being destroyed.
Rhea Silvia was made a Vestal Virgin in order to protect her from any advances from males and would have been allowed to marry only if she remained pure throughout her lifetime (although this didn’t always work out for everyone). However, there were two men—Romulus and Remus—who wanted nothing more than to marry her and make babies with her! Luckily for them both, she gave birth to twin boys: Romulus and Remus!
Cronus was king of the Titans and overthrown by his son Zeus, who then ruled all of Greece and Mount Olympus with his siblings.
Titan Cronus overthrew his father Uranus, and ruled the world. Zeus then overthrew his father Cronus, and ruled Greece and Mount Olympus with his siblings. The Titans were gods like the Olympians, but they weren’t as powerful or important to mythology as the latter group of deities.

Titans and gods have always been a part of humanity’s story, whether it’s praying to Zeus, thanking Buddha for good health or wishing on a star. So next time you see the sun rise to the east and set in the west, remember that it has been doing so since before recorded history began.
