Persephone, Queen of the Underworld, spends half the year in the Underworld with her husband Hades, and half the year in the world of the Living with her mother Demeter. Her kidnap brought about the changing of seasons, so distraught was Demeter she let the world die as she mourned the loss of her daughter, and continues to do so.
