In Greek mythology, the Titans (Greek: Τιτάν—Ti-tan; plural: Τιτᾶνες—Ti-tânes) were a primeval race of powerful deities, descendants of Gaia (Earth) and Uranus (Sky), that ruled during the legendary Golden Age. They were immortal giants of incredible strength and were also the first pantheon of Greek gods and goddesses.

In the first generation of twelve Titans, the males were OceanusHyperionCoeusCronus,Crius, and Iapetus and the females—the Titanesses or Titanides—were MnemosyneTethys,TheiaPhoebeRhea, and Themis. The second generation of Titans consisted of Hyperion’s children HeliosSelene and Eos; Coeus’s daughters Leto and Asteria; Iapetus’s childrenAtlasPrometheusEpimetheus, and Menoetius; Oceanus’ daughter Metis; and Crius’ sonsAstraeusPallas, and Perses.

Greeks of the classical age knew of several poems about the war between the Olympians and Titans. The dominant one, and the only one that has survived, was in the Theogonyattributed to Hesiod. A lost epic, Titanomachia—attributed to the legendary blind Thracian bard Thamyris—was mentioned in passing in an essay On Music that was once attributed toPlutarch. The Titans also played a prominent role in the poems attributed to Orpheus. Although only scraps of the Orphic narratives survive, they show interesting differences with the Hesiodic tradition.
