A Greek Goddess of Spring and Queen of the Underworld, Persephone was a beautiful maiden, lover of flowers, and protectress of the dead.

As the daughter of Zeus and Demeter, Persephone was an extraordinarily powerful maiden—as both a fair vegetation Goddess, and a being of great abundance, fertility, and life.

As unveiled in the myth of Persephone and Hades, a young Persephone (known then as Kore) was stolen as a maiden and dragged down into the Underworld to marry Hades—the King of death himself. It was there that she became Persephone—Queen of the Underworld and Goddess of death.

When she ate the pomegranate seeds while still living in the Underworld, Persephone became the turning of the seasons—living half her life in the above world (for spring and summer), and half her life down below (for autumn and winter). She disappears when the warm sun melts to cool whipping winds, and reappears once more when new life buds and blooms in spring.

It is said that when Persephone lives on earth, she is a beauty of blonde hair and light eyes. But when Persephone returns to the world down below, her fair hair shifts to black and her light eyes become dark. This is when she reigns as Queen of the Underworld, protectress of the dead, and the love inside the coldest, darkest hollows
