Persephone was the daughter of Demeter and Zeus. Kidnapped by Hades as a young maiden, she was doomed to spend the rest of her life as his wife and Queen of the Underworld.

Her mother struck a deal with Hades that Persephone could return to the upper world for part of every year - for spring and summer.

But each year as Persephone leaves to join her husband in the underworld, Greek mythology tells us that the goddess Demeter begins to grieve, bringing on the cold, barren winters.
