Gaia or Gaea (Γαῖα in Ancient Greek) was believed to be the mother of all things and was one of the first entities thought to exist. She was born out of Chaos, and berthed the sky (Uranus, Ouranos) the Mountains (Ourea) and the Sea (Pontus). She joined with the Ouranos to create the world and all life in it, including all the Titan and Pantheon Gods, and with the Pontus to create the gods of the sea.
According to Ancient Greek mythology Gaia was also involved in overthrowing many other Greek Gods. After Ouranos imprisoned some of her sons, she deposed him with the help of her Titan son Kronos (commonly known as Father Time). Then, after Kronos took power and imprisoned the other Titans, she ousted him too with the help of Zeus (King of the Pantheon Gods). She also tried to overthrow Zeus, after being angered by his locking up of the Titans, but twice failed in her attempts.
Although never truly the ruler over the other gods, Gaia was held in the highest regard as the mother of all things. She presided over Godly weddings and oaths and was honoured as a prophetess. It was believed that Gaia’s oaths were unbreakable as no one can escape from the Earth.
Commonly referred to as Mother Earth, it is believed Gaia is the origin for the more modern Mother Earth folklore and symbology.
