What is interesting about Uranus is that he married Gaea. He made 12 off springs with her. The reason he married her was because she needed someone for protection and cover. The thing is that he hated all of this children. Uranus had no care for this children what's so ever. So one by one he threw his kids into Gaea's womb. Leaving Gaea in horrible pain. Gaea told her boldest son Cornus to castrated Uranus and he did.

Myth continued

With the myth being continued Uranus was castrated Uranus by cutting off his genitals. When he cut them off Uranus blood splattered onto earth. Cronus threw them into the sea to be specific. With that happening, it created giants and many other creatures. Their was foam around forming and that was the transformation of Aphrodite. Cornus pretty much took the throne from his own father Uranus. After all of that, Cronus brought all of his brothers back from when Uranus was getting rid of them. Cronus was later crowned the supreme ruler of the word.
