- Gaia & Uranus

Gaia, the goddess of Earth and daughter of Chaos, married Uranus, son of Ether and Day. He is the personification of the sky who ruled the universe. Both created the following children:
Gaia gave birth also to a lot of monsters like Typheoeus during her relationship with Tartarus, an abyss under Hades where later the Titans were imprisoned. This monster had a hundred dragonheads, which spurted fire, and a bellowing many-tongued voice. He created the whirlwinds and fought with Zeus before the god hurled him beneath Mount Etna.
