Persephone was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter. Zeus promised his daughter to his brother, Hades. Hades was impatient for Persephone and abducted her and took her with him to the underworld. Demeter wandered the earth in search of her daughter. As a result of her grief the plants wilted and animals bore no offspring. Zeus intervened to save the earth and ruled that Persephone spends equal time with both her mother and her husband. She could not entirely return to the living world as she had eaten in Hades’ realm.
