Typhon’s lineage is not certain but many believe he was born just of Hera. She is the goddess of women and is known for her jealousy. Typhon was powerful and dangerous. According to Hesiod, Typhon’s mother was Gaia and she birthed him after the gods destroyed the giants on Earth. Typhon had been described as lawless and outrageous.
Typhon was married to Echidna. Their offspring included Cerberus the three-headed dog that guarded hell, the Leraean Hydra who regrew her many heads, and Orthrus, a two-headed dog. Orthrus guarded Geryon’s cattle.
Typhon challenged Zeus for his throne and there was a mighty battle. The oceans boiled and the earth shook. Mighty waves overtook the land and the wind blazed hot.
