Cronus is Zeus's dad.

Zeus, Poseidon and Hades are all siblings.

dont know if this helps anyone but i dont get the relationship so far...

Would it be Zeus', Poseidons' and Hades' children

No, Aphrodite doesn't fit the blank. Aphrodite was born on some seashell i think. Putting it out there, Aphrodite is married to Hephaestus, the god of the forge and smithery.

What do you mean by 'Aphrodite doesn't fit the blank'? She is one of the given names.

I cant find a link between their roles i.e. God of thunder, love, dead etc, and neither can i find a link between their relationships to each other? can we have a hint or are we almost there?

Sure, here's a hint based on your answer:

You shouldn't be able to find a link between their roles, but there is a link between their relationship

Yes, Uranus is the first blank. Since he is solved, I'll provide a brief version of the God family tree that has been touched upon in prior posts. Uranus is father to Cronus, easy enough. Cronus ripped off Uranus' testicles, threw them in the ocean and thus was born, Aphrodite. The Gods aren't anything, if their not gruesome.

This is a very hard puzzle.

I think I have the answer though, please be right.

Uranus, Cronus, Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Aphrodite, Eros, Hedone.

(I know my Greek mythology)

Sorry, no dice. You do know your mythology though.

Uranus, Cronus, Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Aphrodite, Hestia,Hera

Uranus->Cronus-, (Aphrodite) >Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Hestia, Hera

Although, some myths say that Aphrodite is the daughter of Zeus and Dione

Thinking out loud.

1st is Uranus, father of the 2nd, Cronus. The 3rd, 4th, and 5th are the sons of the 2nd, Cronus. The 6th, however, is the daughter of the 1st, so shouldn't she come after Uranus?

Or does the relationship change along the way? Eros is the son of Aphrodite and Hedone is the child of Eros.

Well you could just name all the Greek Gods, but that wouldn't be fun. There is a method to this madness and so far, none of the answers for the last 2 blanks are correct.

If you're only going to use Parent/Child relationships, just think about how many children Zeus has.

Ok, I have no idea at this point, but one thing the puzzle does not say anything about is order, so anyone else looking may not want to get hung up on the order of things. Perhaps order does matter, but perhaps it doesn't.

Uranus for the fist one,Athena maybe if Aphrodite was born from testicles the another wierd birth is her she was born from Zeus' head,then Hermes was a son of Zeus and from the myth I have read Aphrodite is a daughter of Zeus.

largeneal is the closest one to figuring out the reasoning so far. Uranus was already said to be correct for the first blank.

Jordanmax has one of the answers, but not the reason behind it.

I think the conection is Uranus-fother of Cronus,cronus father of Zeus.,Poseidon,Hades and others,but the last 3 separated the world between them.Aphrodita born when Zeus cut the genitals of Cronus,Athena came out of Zeus head and Hephaestus was born from Hera without the "help" of Zeus,because she was jealous To Zeus that he gave "birth" to athena without her .
