Among the children of Uranus and Gaia were the Titans, who revolted against their father, ending his rule.Then the rule of Cronos began, but also he was overthrown by his son— Zeus—who inaugurated a third reign (1).Although Gaia [Mother Earth] is the actual progenitor of the Immortals, Zeus was proclaimed to be the Father of the gods after he led his brothers and sisters, along with other disenfranchised Immortals, against the Titans in a long and bitter war.Zeus became the literal Father of men when he created men and gave them homes on the face of the earth.Among these one was ruled by Cronos, and four by Zeus (there was no race of mortal men when Uranus ruled the world).These races he named using the metaphor of the metals (they are the Golden, Silver, Bronze, and Iron races), except for one—the Heroic race—which comes between the Bronze and Iron races.

An "age" could also be defined after its ruler, and in that sense, we could even distinguish "an age of Uranus".

As the highest god, and throughout Greece worshipped as such, he was styled “the father of gods and men,” the ruler and preserver of the world.
