Greek Name: Gaea

Role in Mythology : Mother Earth

 

 

Gaea was best known as "mother earth" in Greek and Roman mythology. She was also considered the mother of the seas, mountains, valleys, and all other eartly features. She was known to preside over marriages, nurse the sick, and was the first among the oracles. Gaea later mated with her first born child Uranus, and produced her other horrific offspring (Cyclopes and Hecatoncheires). Uranus was so upset by these children that he banished them all to the underworld. Gaea was so upset that she gave a sickle to her child Cronus in order to have him attack his own father. Cronus succeeded and scattered the parts all over the ocean.
