Atlas was the son of the Titan Iapetos and Klymene. This would mean that he and his brothers – Menoitios, Prometheus, and Epimetheus – belong to the same generation of Greek deities as Zeus and the other Olympians; however, Atlas decided to side with Kronos and the remaining Titans during the Titanomachy. Once the Olympians eventually won in their war against the Titans, Atlas and the others were individually punished. Since he was well-known for his great stature and endurance, Atlas was bound at the Western frontier of Earth and forced to hold the Sky apart from her for all time.
