Uranus - Lore, Myths, and Legends

About Uranus, lore, myths, legends, and theories from different cultures.


Lore: The seventh planet in order of distance from the sun, Uranus was unknown to classical antiquity. Although other names for the planet were suggested-including Georgium Sidus in honor of George III, Hypercronius ("above Saturn"), and Neptune-astronomer Johann Bode's suggestion of Uranus eventually prevailed. In Greek mythology, Uranus (Heaven) was the son of Gaea (Earth) and the father of Cronus, known to the Romans as Saturn. His power was destroyed when Saturn castrated him.
