While gathering flowers in a field one day, the beautiful daughter of Zeus and Demeter was abducted to the Underworld by Hades, who arose in his chariot from a fissure in the ground. Her mother Demeter, Goddess of the Harvest, was heartbroken, and while she wandered the length and breadth of the earth in search of her daughter, the crops withered and it became perpetual winter.
At length Hades was persuaded to surrender Persephone for one half of every year. This became the spring and summer seasons when flowers bloom and the earth bears fruit once more. The other half of the year that Persephone spent in the Underworld as Hades' queen coincides with the barren season.
Although Persephone did have a brief crush on Adonis, she nevertheless remained true to her macabre husband, just as he remained faithful to her. You might think of Persephone and Hades as the Morticia and Gomez Adams of the Hellenic world.
