Olympian God Family Tree




In most beliefs, it is said that Chaos was the beginning. Chaos was the first of the Olympian God Family Tree, the first entity, or primeval god to emerge at the creation of the universe. She was followed in quick succession by Gaea (Earth), Tartaros (Underworld), Erebus (Darkness), and Eros (God of Love and Sexual Desire).
