Persefone - Persephone Picture

"And he Zeus came to the bed of bountiful Demeter, who bore white-armed Persephone, stolen by Hades from her mother's side"

In Greek mythology, Persephone was the daughter of Demeter [Ceres] and the embodiment of the Earth's fertility at the same time that she was the Queen of the Underworld.

Persephone lived a peaceful life before she became the goddess of the underworld, which, did not occur until Hades abducted her and brought her into the underworld... Zeus could not forced Hades to return Persephone, and she was forced her to return to the underworld for a season each year... When Demeter and her daughter were united, the Earth flourished with vegetation and color, but for four months each year, when Persephone returned to the underworld, the earth once again became a barren realm.
