One of the Titans who, like most Titans, was doomed to be trapped in the womb of Gaia, in Tartarus. However the fortunate Kronos who was not banished there, killed Uranus who had enslaved his siblings. When Kronos freed the Titans, they fought alongside him against the Olympian gods. Dione was the only Titan to withdraw from the fight. She became the lover of Zues, leader of the Olympian gods. Some sources state that Dione and Zeus had a child together who became the goddess Aphrodite.
