Greek Mythology Picspam: Persephone

Persephone was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter. While she was playing, Persephone was abducted by Hades. He secretly dragged her down to his kingdom, where she stayed unwillingly, refusing to eat. Demeter persuaded Zeus to make Hades return her daughter to her, but before freeing Persephone, Hades tricked her and made her eat four pomegranate seeds. Because of this, Persephone was compelled to spend part of her life in the Underowrld. During this time, Demeter mourns,  so Earth experiences winter. When Persephone returns, it becomes spring. Persephone is often called kore, the maiden. She is also called the queen of the Underworld
