Persephone

In Greek mythology, Persephone (o Kore or Cora) was the embodiment of the Earth's fertility at the same time that she was the Queen of the Underworld, the korÁ (or young maiden), and the parthenogenic daughter of Demeter and, in later Classical myths, a daughter of Demeter and Zeus. In the Olympian version, she also becomes the consort of Hades when he becomes the deity that governs the underworld.
