Greek Mythology

Name: Persephone
Domain: The Goddess of Springtime, The Queen of the Underworld


Persephone was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter. She was the goddess of Springtime. One day Hades abducted her and took her to the underworld to be his wife. A perpetual winter began because of Demeter's sadness. Eventually Hades agreed to let Persephone leave the Underworld for six months out of every year, thus the creation of seasons.
