After she survived he took a more measured approach, befriending her and she is now among his most trusted counsellors. Not long after the founding of the Olympian court Zeus' grandmother,​ <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​gaia">​Gaia</​apdx>,​ incited the <apdx ref="​open:​settings:​6d6hellenic:​apdx:​gigantes">​Gigantomachy</​apdx>​ to overthrow him.
