Description

Hades fell in love with Persephone and decided to kidnap her. The myth says that in one of the rare times he left the Underworld, he traveled above ground to pursue her, while she was gathering flowers in a field. The ground to split underneath her and Persephone slipped beneath the Earth and Hades stole her to the Underworld where he made her his wife.

Persephone’s mother, Demeter, begged her brother Hades to allow Persephone to come back to the livings, Hades consulted with Zeus and they both decided to allow Persephone to live on earth for six months each year, while the rest of the time she would be on his side in the Underworld.

Before leaving the underworld, Persephone had been persuaded to eat four seeds of a pomegranate. In ancient mythology, to eat the fruit of one’s captor meant that one would have to return to that captor or country, so Persephone was doomed to return to the underworld for eternity.
