An epic ten-year battle between the Titans and the Olympians for control of the cosmos and gods. Zeus and the other Olympians were victorious after Kronos rejected Prometheus’s foresight and reason to help outsmart Zeus. Prometheus knew that the war would be won by “superior guile, not might,” but Kronos believed only in strength. Prometheus offered his services to Zeus, and he gladly accepted. Afterward, Zeus banished Kronos and the other Titans to Tartaros, deep beneath the underworld of Hades. Aeschylus’s reference to the Battle of the Titans underscores his overarching argument that reason is more valuable than brute force.
