In Greek mythology, the descendants of Uranos and Gaia were Titans. The Titans were brothers of Kronos, who was the son of Uranos and Gaia, and uncles and aunts to Zeus, who was the son of Kronos and Rhea. Also some cousins to Zeus received the status of Titans. But here are some gods of the first generation who were not considered to be Titans.


Cyclops:
According to sources, Cyclops were three one-eyed and in fight relentless gods who were the sons of Uranos and Gaia, as the first Titans were. But they are not counted among the Titans. Sources claim that Uranos was afraid of their strength, and imprisoned them in Gaia, along with the three hekatonkheires. That triggered his fall, when Gaia then went in against him.
