THE TITANESS - MNEMOSYNE

Mnemosyne, who is also known as a titaness , is the daughter of Uranus and Gaia and also the mother of the nine muses by Zeus...

it is believed that Zeus slept with Mnemosyne for nine times , thereby giving birth to the nine muses. Mnemosyne presides over the pool of Hades, which according to dactylic Hexameter is a counterpart of river Lethe. This River Lethe is said to be where the dead go to drink of that particular water In other to forget their past during re-incarnation. but it was later directed that the dead should drink from Mnemosyne River instead of the Lethe River.

Also, those who wish to consult the Oracle of Trophonius in Boeotie, were made to drink from both the River of Mnemosyne and Lethe.
