History of this Titaness :
In Greek mythology, Mnemosyne or Mnemosyne (Greek Μνημοσύνη Mnemosyne, of mneme μνήμη, 'memory'), often confused with Mneme, was the personification of memory. This Titánide was the daughter of Gaia and Uranus, and the mother of the Muses by Zeus.

In Hesiod's Theogony, kings and poets received the power to speak authoritatively for possession of Mnemosyne and their special relationship with the Muses. Also note that Zeus joined Mnemosyne nine consecutive nights and so begat the nine Muses, who were born in a multiple birth.

The souls of the dead drank of Lethe so as not to remember their past lives when reincarnated. The initiates were encouraged to drink from the river Mnemosyne when they died, rather than the Lete. These inscriptions could be related to a secret mystery religion, or the poetry of Orfeo.1

Similarly, those who wished to consult the oracle of Trofonio in Boeotia were made to drink alternately from two sources called "Lethe" and "Mnemosyne". A similar procedure is described in the myth of Er at the end of Plato's Republic.
