Mythology meme: (1/9)
Persephone was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter and the goddess of springtime. One day, while she was collecting flowers, Hades, who was in love with her and amazed by her beauty, appeared and abducted her. He took her to the Underworld and made her his wife. Persephone’s mother, Demeter, was so heartbroken that she refused to let the Earth fruit until her daughter was returned. Zeus couldn’t let that happen, and persuaded Hades to surrender the goddess. Even though Persephone grew to love Hades and enjoy her role as a queen, she missed Earth and her mother. However, since Persephone had eaten from the god of death’s food, she had to spend half of each year in the Underworld as Hades’ queen. During that time, it was winter on Earth; when she returned, the flowers started to bloom and life became radiant again: it was spring.
