cited from: Hamilton, Edith. Mythology. Little Brown & Company, January 1950.

Some gods appear twice and it is because they had multiple sexual partners including relatives, without protection as the tree shows. In addition, Zeus was quite a playa and rapist.
Aphrodite is often said to be born of the seafoam, the source of which is Cronus' severed testicles, though there is reason to believe she was born to Zeus and Dione.
Hephaestus is sometimes said to be only Hera's son, not Zeus'.
