This video is all about the terrible and powerful generation of gods in Greek myth known as the Titans, and their battle for dominance over the universe. When it comes to Greek mythology, we are probably most familiar with the Olympian gods, the young family of divinities that included figures like Zeus, Athena and Hades. The Olympian gods were dominant over the universe and were responsible for aspects of the world like the skies, the seas, the sun, and agriculture.
The term Titan is used for two generations of these gods which can be fairly easily split between elder and younger titans.
